Medical plastics at Chinaplas 2019

With the rise in popularity of interventional therapy techniques, the demand for precision medical tubing is increasing. As an industry leader in polymer processing, Davis-Standard understands the extrusion demands of the global medical tube market, to include strict tolerances, high speeds, cleanroom-specific equipment, and good process support. Davis-Standard can design a complete turnkey extrusion system according to a customer’s strict product requirements. Its Connecticut laboratory in the United States supports the development of new medical tubing applications such as microcavity tubes, multi-lumen tubes, and taper tubing, as well as the ability to process tubing with alternative polymers.

Living standards have been improving while people also are becoming more aware of health issues, leading to a considerable demand for home medical equipment. Many tests and treatments can be done at home, rendering some hospital visits unnecessary. As a result, miniaturized, portable medical devices are in growing demand.

Additionally, devices that are more compact and flexible are also desired for use in minimally invasive surgeries and precision medical treatments. At the same time, welding process requirements are getting more stringent, especially for small, thin-wall medical products that require a high degree of assembly precision. Branson Ultrasonics (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.'s GSX platform provides advanced control and precise positioning of the mechatronic control system with pressure stepping and better process control, enabling higher energy-transfer capacity, high-quality welding, lower scrap rates, and increased production.
