MATERIALS: Minnesota Rubber and Plastics (MR&P) provides medical device manufacturing of complex medical assemblies made of molded rubber and plastics. Operating an ISO 13485:2003 certified quality management system, MR&P is experienced at manufacturing and assembling medical devices in Class 10,000 and Class 100,000 clean rooms and is equipped to provide assistance with design and materials engineering.
MR&P molds and assembles medical devices requiring high tolerance components that facilitate device function. Device designs include seals that isolate fluids, internal bosses for aligning actuating mechanisms containing washers and springs, and snap-fit designs that lock the assembly together without the use of adhesives.
MR&P’s precision molding capabilities comprise silicone molding and bonding, processing of high-performance rubber and plastics, rubber-to-plastic conversions, and metal-to-plastic conversions. The company molds a variety of materials, including compounds compliant with ISO 10993, USP Class VI, and FDA requirements. It produces needle-free injection devices, surgical instruments, diagnostic instruments, valves, pumps, connectors, diaphragms, plunger tips, seals, laboratory equipment and disposables, among other devices.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
