Technical & Rapid Prototyping Capabilities
ITW Medical has been awarded more than 40 patents and 28 510Ks for designing and manufacturing filtration, flow control, and fluid management components. Our engineers and manufacturing staff strive to deliver innovative thinking that keeps products and processes on the cutting edge of technology. ITW Medical can also apply patents, techniques, and services from our sister divisions to help improve our current products and processes.
ITW Medical can build prototype tools quickly and cost-efficiently. These prototype tools and parts help our customers improve their designs and assemblies. These prototype tools also help ITW identify, reduce and eliminate problems that might arise before production even begins.
Rapid Prototyping Stereolithography: SLA and SLS
Rapid prototyping can be used to evaluate part designs (form and fit) quickly. These techniques include SLA (Stereolithography) and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)
ITW Medical engineers work closely with resin suppliers to specify and utilize highly engineered thermoplastic resins when appropriate. These resins are typically used when the filter component performs other functions, including instances where highly engineered plastics, such as PPS (Polyphenylene Sulfide) and PPA (Polyphthalamide), are needed to replace metal parts.
