Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical will exhibit element options for healthcare and medical purposes at MEDI’NOV Connection in Lyon, France, on 31 Might and 1 June 2023.

Guests to the Trelleborg stand can study specialist multicomponent expertise that creates distinctive parts past the potential of different strategies, extending the boundaries of producing innovation. Medical tools producers profit from a course of that helps meet their design targets, together with lowering the dimensions and weight of parts, whereas growing their robustness and bettering high quality, reducing whole value of possession.

Trelleborg’s Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) consultants make use of extremely refined instruments and course of engineering to develop novel options, combining two or extra particular person supplies and elements into one absolutely bonded, sturdy element. This multicomponent injection moulding or co-injection – generally known as 2K or 2-shot – produces elements which can be extra hygienic, eradicating the lifeless area the place micro organism can breed, and lowers prices by reducing out meeting and lowering the variety of parts within the buyer’s provide chain.

A associated expertise – micromoulding – is essential to the miniaturisation of units so small they’re wearable and implantable. Elements under 10 milligrams in weight are doable utilizing needlepoint injection expertise and absolutely automated elements dealing with. Trelleborg’s excessive dimensional flashless and wasteless design ideas create micromoulded elements nearly flash-free and never requiring secondary deflashing.

Emmanuel Louison, gross sales engineer at Trelleborg Sealing Options, mentioned: “With the event of ever-smaller refined medical units, element producers are challenged to provide multi-function units of more and more compact dimensions. Micromoulding and multicomponent LSR applied sciences present an answer to this situation.

“Extending design choices additional than some other expertise, multicomponent moulding permits medical system builders the chance to transcend easy operate. Nearly boundless product profiles and geometries supply system designers choices that they could not even concentrate on.”

Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical is an exponent of mouldings typically utilized in implantable healthcare and medical units. In-house precision tooling and experience allow Trelleborg to create customized silicone and thermoplastic moulded elements with tight tolerances, whereas satisfying the necessity for fast product growth with fast turnaround prototypes.
