Guide to Producing Medical Devices Parts
The progress of technology is impartial. New inventions keep coming up even in the worst of events. The most recent threat is the Corona Virus aka COVID 19. This new threat has spread all over the world. To make matters worse it is doing so at an alarming rate. It is causing the stunting of multiple sectors of the economy. Despite these cons, there are a few arising pros. More countries are uniting against this common foe. Uniquely, the tech world is speeding up in producing medical devices. Moreover, new inventions are coming up in a bid to contain an array of infections.
The Demands in Producing Medical Devices
Lots of pathogens affect the breathing system. Patients end up presenting with coughs, body pain, and high fever. These symptoms keep growing. Eventually, they may overwhelm the body. This may result in serious outcomes. Medical devices help the body in fighting them. In this case, the most vital medical devices are humidifiers, ventilators, and breathing masks.
Due to their quick progression, there is a huge influx of sick people. This results in a shortage of these vital medical devices. As they spread, hospitals are under increasing strain. They often face a lacking vital medical gear that is crucial to helping the body keep fighting. As a result, ideas are popping up all over the world to help rapidly develop such medical devices. Lots of designers and engineers are stepping up to design medical devices for life-saving purposes. One example is the creation of ventilator splitters to improve the capacity of existing ventilators.
However, many companies lack the funds and capacity to act quickly. Luckily, we at Creatingway are using cheap and efficient rapid medical device production methods. A few examples of these processes are 3D printing, injection molding, and CNC machining. They have the capacity and speed to make medical devices in this time of crisis.
Affordable Ventilator Prototypes via Rapid Injection Molding
Rapid injection molding is a rapid prototyping method. It helps us set up the production of medical devices within weeks instead of waiting for months. This is since it is like normal injection molding. Rapid injection molding is perfect for producing medical devices cheaply and quickly.
A cheap ventilator prototype has the following parts:
- A plastic enclosure
- A standard ambulance bag
- A motor
- A remote
- A special plastic cam part
The following principle regulates its action. The motor first activates the cam function. It then suspends the ambulance bag and forces air into the patient’s lungs. We use batteries to maintain the entire action. We prefer setting up a batch production system for a ventilator. Rapid injection molding especially is ideal for making most of the device’s parts. Moreover, we can alter the enclosure to enable it better house the parts. We lastly add a silicone-based breathing mask that fits patients.
Insight into Respirator Manufacturing
Respirator producers are among the people helping manage breathing difficulties. Most people prefer buying paper masks, as they are cheap. However, these paper masks are not efficient and last only a few hours. Rather than protect the wearer from the virus, it prevents them from spreading the pathogen. Now, the respirators with filters are unique. The filter is changeable and offers a better defense. This makes it a more helpful medical device to the final client.
Most respirators comprise of two parts, a silicone mask, and a filter. We make the filter through injection molding. Unique injection molds take two to three months to design. We then proceed to verify and machine it from hardened steel for later use in mass production. However, we make rapid injection molds using lighter alloys through CNC machining. It ensures better efficiency due to quicker machining of the mold. This is since two processes take place at once.
Making Humidifiers via Rapid Injection Molding
Doctors advise patients to keep hydrated in a bid to maintain one’s health. You can achieve this by keeping the air humid or drinking a lot of water. This helps in lowering raspy coughs, a common sign in breathing problems. For this reason, humidifiers are in high demand. Rapid injection molding helps solve this problem by quickly making humidifiers.
A humidifier comprises of the following parts:
- A water tank
- An enclosure where water from the tank flows
- An ultrasonic membrane
The Advantages of Making Medical Devices
Despite meddling with the jobs of many people in production companies, they have a few cons. Companies like Creatingway, are taking up the task to meet the rising medical devices demand. We pay keen attention to producing medical devices that help patients. Moreover, we do not leave our esteemed health care professionals behind. We strive to supply gear that protects health care workers from infection.
