Plastic items have incredibly impacted all industries globally, but their impact has been considerably more advanced in healthcare. Essentially, plastic is the most versatile material that has been able to keep up with the dynamic nature of the medical industry.
The fabrication and machining of high-performing medical devices are critical to providing quality healthcare services. At PlasTech Machining & Fabrication, we’re committed to providing high-grade medical devices and products to existing and emerging businesses.
How Plastics have Revolutionized the Healthcare Industry
Since their adoption, thermoplastics have made healthcare safer, cost-effective, and more efficient. Plastics are durable and widely used in creating and developing medical safety devices like blister packs and tamper-proof caps. They’re also used to make non-permeable bags for storage and transportation of medical items.
Similarly, plastics are thought to be cost-effective as they often allow mass production, recycling, and multiple applications. Most importantly, plastics are highly versatile and can be tailored to suit specific applications. With its unique ability to adapt to the most intricate molds, plastic is now used in surgical procedures, devices, and products such as stents, joint replacements, and pacemakers.
Fabrication and Machining of Medical Devices and Products of Superior Quality
At PlasTech, we have extensive experience and knowledge in engineered plastics materials. We work with different types of plastic materials, such as:
Derived from the monomer methyl methacrylate (MMA), acrylic is widely applied in cuvettes and tubing connectors. It can also be used to create blood filters, test kits, drainage wands, and syringes. Acrylic’s other applications include fluid silos, flow meters, incubators, blood-pump housing, surgical trays, and more.
In the healthcare setting, polymeric materials are widely used as tissue adhesives and suture materials for dental composites, contact and intraocular lenses, cosmetic implants, and more.
Polycarbonate provides unique advantages to healthcare applications. It’s used in various life-supporting equipment such as blood oxygenators, intravenous connectors, endoscopic appliances, arterial filters, and anesthesia containers.
PVC is one of the most widely used plastic materials in the healthcare industry. It is commonly used in dialysis solutions, blood products, and IV fluids. Furthermore, PVC can be used along with frequency welding to produce various container shapes and different types of attachments.
We also specialize in the fabrication and mining of other materials, including Nylon, Torlon, Delrin, Phenolic, Kydex, ABC, HDPE, UHMW, Acetal, and more.
