Weighing 120 mg
and operating in temperatures of up to +150C, the Endevco model 12M series
features the incorporation of Meggitt's Piezite-type P-8 bimorph sensing element, operating in bender mode.
This material offers low base strain sensitivity, low pyroelectric output and extremely
high charge output versus size. Advanced manufacturing techniques and materials R&D have propelled Meggitt
forward as an industry innovator in these types of piezoelectric sensing
technologies. As a result, models within the Endevco 12M series are routinely
incorporated into implantable medical device designs to support such critical
applications as patient activity indicators, cardiac pacemaker and
defibrillator rate response, implanted pain management device monitoring, blood
pressure monitoring, blood glucose monitoring, artificial joint pressure
measurements and external and implanted drug therapy systems.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
