Simple Steps to a Greener Medical Device Manufacturing Process

One of the most challenging aspects of manufacturing medical devices is permanently and safely attaching the parts together. Whether it’s single-use medical syringe production requiring bonding the stainless steel cannula to the plastic hub, or fastening a catheter balloon to a shaft, the bond is critical to the reliability of the device and ultimately the safety of the patients. In all medical applications, poor bonding could result in leakage of bodily fluids and medication or catastrophic device failure, situations that could be dangerous to the patient and the medical professional.

While there are many different assembly techniques available, light-curing technology offers unique benefits. The speed, simplicity, and performance and green nature of light-curable materials make them desirable for many industries.

To understand how light-curing technology works and learn how medical device manufacturers can use it to take greater control over the performance of the manufacturing process, this webinar will address the two biggest challenges that engineers often face:

  • Confidence in the location of the adhesive
  • Confidence that the adhesive is fully cured

The featured speakers will compare adhesive solutions on some common medical device applications:

  • IV Drip Chamber
  • Needle Bonding
  • Catheter Assembly

Join this webinar to learn how light-cure technology can help manufacturers maximize productivity and savings with a greener process.
