Manufacturing Techniques for Medical Technology

Modern medical device coatings are designed to eliminate the discomfort involved with tubes inside the body. Items like catheters would cause extreme discomfort without some sort of technology to make the tubing slip-proof. Using special manufacturing processes, we are able to create medical devices that can fit comfortably within the body. The following are just a few uses for this exciting technology.

Beam Technology

Using a super-heating process with ion beams, manufacturers are able to produce medical tubing that is capable of resisting long-term wear and tear. It’s a similar process to the one used in the manufacture of metalized plastic, which can be found in aircraft systems. This space-age technology uses electrons to super heat a substance and melt it down to a molecular level. The particulate matter then bounces around the chamber until it settles on the substrate. The material coats the substrate completely, which allows manufacturers to coat materials that would otherwise melt under the extreme temperatures. apply particular matter to something called the substrate. Manufacturers must first create a 3-D model of the substrate, which they use to make the proper calculations before it’s placed in the chamber.

Medical Applications

This technology is prevelant in many devices in circulation today. Chances are good that anyone wearing a prosthetic implant uses materials created by this technology. This process can be used to metalize plastics and make them more durable, useful for joints in a moving part like an artificial knee or hip. Thanks to plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition, we can replace lost limbs and give patients a new lease on life.

Save Money on Your Web Hosting

By Rack Alley

Just about every company in LA needs help with hosting. It’s how they keep a website up and running that actually serves their best interests. Unfortunately, if you don’t know what you’re doing, you could be working against your own. Los Angels web hosting companies can charge an up and a leg and unsuspecting businesses are usually paying.

However, you can save on LA web hosting if you know what you’re doing. First, consider the fact that the whole surrounding area can be used for your hosting. You could even head to Northern California.

Secondly, you want to consider those companies that have an a la carte option. By this, I mean that you need shouldn’t have to pay for a bunch of options you’ll never use. Maybe you just need web hosting, but not colocaiton. Many companies offer both and will insist on you buying a package that includes the two. This is wasted money.
