Trelleborg Showcases Medical Device Component Innovations at MEDI’NOV Connection
Attendees can learn about specialist multicomponent technology that enables production of components that cannot be produced by any other method, pushing the limits of manufacturing innovation. The technology benefits medical equipment manufacturers by helping them meet their design goals, such as making products smaller, lighter, and more compact, increasing robustness, and improving inherent quality, while lowering total cost of ownership.
Referred to as 2K, 2-shot, multi-component injection molding or co-injection, Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) experts employ highly sophisticated tools and process engineering to develop novel solutions, combining two, three or more individual materials and components into one fully bonded, robust component. Parts are more hygienic, eradicating the dead space where bacteria can breed, and lower costs by cutting out assembly as well as reducing the number of components in the customer’s supply chain.
In addition to multicomponent parts, Trelleborg will display its micromolding capabilities, Isolast® perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) sealing solutions, specialty extruded tubing and hose products, drug delivery devices, and Seal-Glide® nanoscale surface treatment at MEDI’NOV Connection.
