No longer will you need to pre-dry thermoplastic vulcanizate (TVP) elastomers used to produce medical devices or healthcare products--providing you turn to a new series of TPVs from Teknor Apex's Plastics Div. The Uniprene(reg) 7010 Series compounds are nearly identical to advanced Uniprene materials recently introduced for general industrial applications. However, they have been reformulated with ingredients that conform to 21 CFR for medical and food-contact uses. Not only do the TPVs reduce or eliminate pre-drying because they absorb less moisture, but they cost less to color, since they exhibit less yellowness in natural (uncolored) form. Currently under evaluation are overmolded plugs in surgical cables and plunger tips for syringes. Teknor Apex: Product Code 4376
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
