Surface Preparation in Medical Device Manufacturing
In medical device manufacturing there exist critical surface preparation process requirements. This infographic compares the Surface Analyst™ to typical surface preparation methods used in the manufacturing of medical devices. Common methods include dyne ink and water break tests.
BTG Labs offers the Surface Analyst to accurately measure and monitor surface sensitive processes. Consequently, the Surface Analyst produces quantitative results on a highly precise level to assist in the required specification involved in the manufacturing of medical devices.
The Latest in Medical Device Manufacturing
BTG Labs will host a booth at the Generis American Medical Device Summit 2016. The event, taking place at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Chicago, Illinois will go from October 5-6. Generis will bring together over 175 members of the medical device manufacturing industry to the Summit. This presents a rich opportunity for manufacturers and engineers to share the latest technologies and form connections.
A Surface Preparation Guide
In preparation of the American Medical Device Summit, October 5-6 2016, BTG Labs and Generis have created an eBook, “Surface Preparation for Medical Device Manufacturers.” With over 175 companies involved, this summit is a chance for those in the industry to connect and exchange ideas.
This eBook discusses the critical surface requirements in the medical device manufacturing field for sealing, coating, painting, printing, bonding, and cleaning. The industry uses vacuum plasma, atmospheric pressure plasma, and corona treatment for polymer bonding. Yet, there has been no quantifiable way to verify the cleanliness of their surfaces. Surface cleanliness verification is crucial in medical device manufacturing as it can speed production, ensure production safety, and reduce the likelihood of recalls.
