The Future of Plastic Assembly for IoT Medical Devices

Data drives almost every facet of modern life, and its influence is growing.

This is especially true in the world of medical device manufacture, where the ideas behind the Internet of Things (IoT) have particularly useful applications.

Manufacturers and product designers in the medical equipment industry have more opportunities than ever to create life-saving products using scalable, affordable processes.

Investing in the latest plastic assembly for IoT medical devices and technologies can create significant value for manufacturers who adopt the right approach.

Market Outlook: Keep Wearable Injectors Flexible, Affordable, and Comfortable

The wearable injectors market is primed for growth following the developments and FDA approvals of recent years.

Although commonly associated with insulin pumps, wearable injectors are only superficially similar. Whereas insulin pumps gradually provide the body with insulin on a constant basis, wearable injectors are designed to deliver up to 50 milliliters of a therapeutic agent at specific intervals before being thrown away.

Unlike insulin pumps, which patients may use for years, wearable injectors are temporary by design.

This difference provides a clear path forward to manufacturers who are interested in developing solutions for this burgeoning industry.

Trends in Plastic Automotive Component Manufacture

Steel used to be the material of choice for automotive component manufacture.

From the origin of the automobile in the late 19th century to the Golden Age of Auto Design that began 70 years later, component manufacturers used steel as their go-to material for a broad range of auto parts.

However, consumer attitudes have undergone a significant shift towards fuel efficiency and emissions reduction. Government regulators have assessed stringent standards for vehicular emissions across the world, giving manufacturers a clear incentive to make cars lighter.

This led to a proliferation of aluminum vehicles – the material accounts for 25% of the..

Top 3 Upcoming Trends in the Medical Device Manufacturing Industry

The medical device manufacturing industry is in a period of transition.

For many years, the entire medical industry has been undergoing a shift from invasive, large-scale procedures to laparoscopic and catheter-oriented treatments. The factors that contribute to today's medical device landscape began to appear in the 1990s, with major consolidations and a new focus on global partnership.

These trends show no sign of slowing down – but they will pivot around important upcoming technological advances. At the same time, regulatory and ethical issues surrounding these new advances will influence the choices healthcare providers make when delivering care.

The Difference Between Heat Staking and Swaging

Manufacturers in a wide range of industries rely on heat staking and heat swaging to assemble and join plastic parts. In the past, technologies like ultrasonic welding and hot plate welding were some of the most popular, but modern advances in thermal press technology and materials have made both heat staking and swaging more attractive than ever.

As consumer electronics, medical devices, and automotive parts got smaller and more complex over the years, the processes manufacturers use to join them have become more advanced. Heat staking is one of these processes, and heat swaging is another.

Both processes address the..

Food Product Packaging – Heat Sealing or Ultrasonic?

For food packaging manufacturers, vertical fill form sealing (VFFS) technology is an important area for cost-saving innovation.

During procurement, most companies look to this tightly regulated process for improvement because modern technologies have already improved throughput for the rest of the manufacturing line.

For many, VFFS bagging remains a bottleneck process.

Unsurprisingly, this leads manufacturers currently using heat sealing equipment to consider ultrasonic solutions, and those using ultrasonic equipment to consider heat sealing.

The old adage, “the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence,” is just as true here as it is anywhere else.

However, advances..

USP Class VI Medical Packaging – How to Ensure Compliance when Heat Sealing

When it comes to regulatory compliance, medical devices are in a league of their own.

Since lives are routinely on the line, manufacturers of medical devices have to plan for every possible use case scenario and create products that address those situations.

This means that before manufacturing even the simplest medical device, you need to carefully define the situations and environments it is to be used in. Then, you have to ensure that even in the case of product failure, the risk of endangering lives is as small as possible.

To this end, the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention..
