MPC, MPX, and Nu-Seal(TM) DSM Series couplings are for medical device applications ranging from cardiovascular devices to urinary drainage kits. MPC Series couplings are offered in two flow path sizes: 0.210 inch, for 1/4-inch ID tubing; and 0.290 inch for 3/8-inch ID tubing. MPX Series couplings, available in polycarbonate, are available in 0.500 inch flow and possess the same attributes as MPC Series couplings. Nu-Seal DSM coupling inserts are made from polyethylene and are for high-volume disposable applications such as irrigation sets, disposable tourniquets, and blood-pressure cuffs.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
