April, 12 2016
Coventry – With more than 60 years of experience and expertise in the fields of extrusion, molding and assembly, RAUMEDIC strives constantly for new and innovative products. In cooperation with customers from the medical technology industry and with partners on a global scale RAUMEDIC develops and produces high-quality polymer products meeting the highest standards in terms of quality, functionality and reliability.
Products for extrusion, injection molding and assembly: all from a single source
At Med-Tech Innovation, RAUMEDIC will present its broad product portfolio: from multilayer tubing, micro tubing with X-ray tubing, multilumen tubing and thin-walled tubing, through molded components made from hard and soft polymers, also in combination with overmolded tubing and metal cannulas, to system components and catheter products, individually packaged and sterilized.
Micro Injection Molding: for smallest devices
Furthermore RAUMEDIC will highlight its precision injection molding capabilities. Micro molded parts, are in the focus of attention. RAUMEDIC processes also high temperature materials such as PEEK, PSU and PPSU in clean room conditions, for many medical technology and pharmaceutical applications. This is highly advantageous, as the company is also well known for its expertise in micro extrusion, and the micro molding technology just completes the portfolio of the single source supplier.
RAUMEDIC is well-known for its material expertise. Not only thermoplastic polymers are a part of the product portfolio, the company has also excellent silicone know-how. RAUMEDIC can offer multilumen, braided, co-extruded or also micro tubing. The surface of the tubing can be treated and enhanced with e.g. a low tack surface, which facilitates further assembly steps. In the field of silicone injection molding, RAUMEDIC offers a broad variety of possibilities.
The production environment, which is specially equipped for the requirements of silicone injection molding, permits highly automated production using multi-cavity molds with short cycle times and very low scrap rates. The entire value-added process occurs as per GMP guidelines under clean room conditions according to ISO class 7. RAUMEDIC can process liquid silicone rubber (LSR) as well as high consistency silicone rubber (HCR). The smallest parts start with a weight per piece of 0.008 g and very tight tolerances. Connectors, fixing elements as well as pressure sensors and bubble detection areas can be integrated without any additional parts or further processing steps. A combination of silicone and thermoplastic parts in one system is also possible.
Visitors will have the opportunity to drop by and form their own opinion on how thermoplastic and silicone are processed as part of a unique injection molding process. For more information please visit RAUMEDIC at the Med-Tech Innovation show in Coventry.
RAUMEDIC AG is a development partner and manufacturer of tubing, molded parts, catheters and components for the medical and pharmaceutical industry. The company processes medical-grade thermoplastic polymers and silicones at a total of four production sites in Germany and in the USA. Furthermore, the medical engineering company develops and produces high-precision pressure measurement systems with microchip technology for the indication areas of neuromonitoring, urology and traumatology.
With 60 years of experience in the fields of extrusion, injection molding and assembly, as well as the commitment of currently 680 employees worldwide, RAUMEDIC is optimally equipped to transform the ideas of its customers into well-engineered product solutions. Customer satisfaction and compliance with all relevant statutory and official requirements are the focus of RAUMEDIC’s conception of quality. The basis of this is a quality management system according to ISO 13485 and 108,000 f² (10,000 m²) of clean room production according to ISO 14644 (class 7).
