When you think of GE Energy, you usually think of huge power-generating equipment. But at MD&M West next week GE Energy will introduce patent-pending Aspire hydrophilic ePTFE membrane.
The new fluoropolymer technology eliminates alcohol pre-wetting of cartridge filters that can be time consuming and expensive.
GE Energy says its Aspire hydrophilic ePTFE membrane meets the same criteria for bacteria retention, flow rate, and chemical resistance as hydrophobic ePTFE membranes.
I’ll be at MD&M West next week to check out the latest materials and assembly technologies for medical designers and manufacturers. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s something you’d like me to check out.
The grab bag of plastic and rubber materials featured in this new product slideshow are aimed at lighting applications or automotive uses. The rest are for a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, oil & gas, RF and radar, automotive, building materials, and more.
Many of the new adhesives we're featuring in this slideshow are for use in automotive and other transportation applications. The rest of these new products are for a wide variety of applications including aviation, aerospace, electrical motors, electronics, industrial, and semiconductors.
A Columbia University team working on molecular-scale nano-robots with moving parts has run into wear-and-tear issues. They've become the first team to observe in detail and quantify this process, and are devising coping strategies by observing how living cells prevent aging.
Many of the new materials on display at MD&M West were developed to be strong, tough replacements for metal parts in different kinds of medical equipment: IV poles, connectors for medical devices, medical device trays, and torque-applying instruments for orthopedic surgery. Others are made for close contact with patients.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
