Trelleborg Puts its Medical Capabilities on Show at MD&M West

Trelleborg will be demonstrating its medical offerings at the 2017 MD&M West exhibition in Anaheim, California in the U.S. from February 7th through to the 9th. From contact manufacturing of combination devices to outstanding manufacturing capabilities, unique silicone technology to advanced engineered fabrics. Visit Trelleborg at booths 1605 and 2818.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will highlight its contract manufacturing services for delivering drug-device components, which enable the combination of components in any two or three product categories: medical devices, drugs and/or biologics. Leveraging engineering experience, Trelleborg provides complete start to finish product development and manufacturing for drug-eluting medical devices that emit a drug over time to fight infections or block cell proliferation, for example.

In addition, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has an FDA licensed drug manufacturing facility able to deliver a quality system encompassing design, feasibility, prototyping, clinical builds, and commercial releases.  This is presented alongside the unique patented GeoTrans® technology, a silicone extrusion innovation that produces superior geometric tubing in complex configurations.

Drew Rogers, Global Director, Healthcare & Medical for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions says: “As a global leader in engineered polymer solutions, we are well-suited to leverage deep expertise in material science, biochemistry, mechanical engineering, process design, and quality systems to meet our customers’ specific needs.  We are thrilled to have further expanded our portfolio of silicone products, increased our ability to work with many bioabsorbable materials and manufacture drug-eluting components as well as complete drug-device combination products.”
