Key Learning Objectives:
- Alleima with its history as Sandvik Materials Technology has over 160 years’ experience in advanced materials development
- What is required to produce the small wire-based components
- What does more capabilities out of the same final product dimensions mean
- Nitinol and sensor wire combined in the medtech devices of the future
A notable trend in the medical device market is miniaturization. Smaller medical devices make for less invasive procedural techniques, less trauma during surgeries, and shorter recovery times. Not only does this help patients return to their normal lives much sooner, but it takes considerable strain off healthcare infrastructure that is being stretched by a growing number of patients with long-term health needs.
In this webinar Dr Cacie McDorman, Engineering Manager at Alleima, Dr Bernd Vogel, Founder of Endosmart / Global Technology and Innovation Manager at Alleima and Jerry Blanton, Sales and Marketing Manager at Alleima, will give a presentation about how Alleima’s medical unit is leading a team of engineers thinking outside the box to develop the automated processes that are needed to manufacture small-scale components repeatedly but also how they make it possible to implement more capabilities out of the same final product dimensions. These products are as small as roughly one-tenth of a milligram in weight and barely visible.
