This molding process is also used for medical device prototype development for the FDA approval process and use in laboratory testing.
Medical Injection Molding Benefits
Since medical device plastics provide increased versatility and can be combined with metal to create enhanced medical product attributes, medical-grade plastics have become the preferred material for numerous types of electronic medical devices. Some of the advantages that medical injection molding companies can provide include:
Why Plastic Injection Molding is Important in the Medical Field?
Since inception, the use of plastics within modern medicine has steadily increased. Medical devices that are manufactured from injection molded plastic have contributed to a reduction in medical costs, infectious disease and pain management. High tech polymers are used within medical device prototype development and are commonly used to create improved artificial limbs and devices that reduce the risk of infection. Medical plastic injection molding directly leads to increased patient safety and the ability to save more lives.
Medical Plastic Injection Molding Applications
Using our medical injection molding processes, Stack Plastics produces delivery devices for stents, implants, sutures, and more. We also offer assembly services for subcomponents of larger, more complicated medical devices. In addition to medical injection molding, we manufacture plastic moldings that house other, non-plastic components or mechanisms.
Medical insert molding processes can create housings for medical devices including Needles, Surgical instruments and blades, Tubes, Dental instruments, Medical equipment components, Prosthetics.
Medical Plastic Injection Molding Materials
The medical-grade plastic materials we use for medical injection molding have high molecular weight and feature chemical and heat resistant properties. Each type of thermoplastic used for medical molding also features different advantages and qualities you will want to review before selecting a material for your injection molding application.
Considerations for Selecting Medical Injection Molding Plastic Materials
There are several grades of plastic available for medical device injection molding and medical device prototype development. Each material carries unique properties that determine how it will perform in its intended application and operating environment. Considerations for selecting the right medical grade plastic material for your application include:
