Intertronics at Medtech adhesives and equipment for medical device manufacturers
News Release from:
28 February 2011
Intertronics will display their expertise in adhesives for disposable medical device manufacturers at Medtech in April (6-7th) at the NEC. Along with UV, cyanoacrylate and epoxy adhesives, Intertronics will show UV curing equipment, dispensing, application and mixing equipment.
Of particular note will be displays of the THINKY mixing range, a Fisnar 4200 benchtop dispensing robot and a DYMAX LED Prime UVA lamp demonstration curing ISO 10993 adhesives.
The Intertronics adhesives range at Medtech will feature ISO 10993 and USP Class VI types for the assembly of disposable medical devices – bonding plastics, metal, ceramics, glass and other standard substrates used in the industry. These will include UV curing and cyanoacrylate adhesives from DYMAX, as well as epoxy adhesives from Opti-tec.
UV and visible light curing equipment from Intertronics covers spot lamps, flood clamps and UV conveyors for use in medical device manufacture – including of course the latest in low temperature, long life LED UV curing lamps, with matching process control instruments and radiometers.
Naturally dispensing and application will be fully addressed, from manual to full automated robotic systems compatible with adhesives, coatings, inks, fluids etc, as well as appropriate dispensing valves and consumables such as nozzles, wipes etc.
It is recognized that for high performance medical devices, two and multi-part materials need consistent mixing and metering. Consequently THINKY planetary mixers will be shown on the Intertronics stand – they can mix, dispense, degass and vacuum mix in from seconds to minutes using either sealed or lid-less containers such as a jar, beaker, syringe tube or cartridge – and in disposable cups for particularly difficult materials.
