C o m / m P m n 1 4 M A R C H / A P R I L 2 0 1 5 BIomedevice Boston 2015 micromolding services MTD Micro Molding Inc. specializes exclusively in the manufacture of advanced medical microdevices using micromolding processes, particularly bioabsorbable implantable devices for cardiology, gastroenterology, bronchoscopy, oncology, pain management, and urology applications. The vertically integrated parts supplier produces tooling, prototypes, and molded components under one roof, employing four Class 100,000 cleanrooms and fully automated equipment specifcally developed for medical device manufacturing. It partners with customers in every aspect of device development and production, reviewing designs, specifcations, and the processes necessary to ensure the desired outcome. Its material database enables it to predict how a particular material will fow in a given molding application and how the fnished part will perform. The company can mold microsized parts and features with tolerances of under 0.0005 in. ■ mtd micro molding Inc. CHARLTON, MA Booth #442 stamping and machining Preferred Tool & Die is a tooling and stamping facility and Preferred Precision a machining facility that together constitute a workforce of engineers, toolmakers, and technicians serving the medical device and orthopedic industries. The former concentrates on stamping thin-gauge 300-series, 400-series, and precipitation-hardening stainless steels into complex parts with coined features and unusual characteristics. The latter specializes in producing intricate, tight-toleranced components from a variety of materials, including titanium, stainless steels, Kovar, aluminum, and such machinable plastics as PEEK, Ultem, and Delrin. It is equipped with machining centers, CNC lathes, and nine-axis CNC Swiss turning centers. The ISO 13485:2003–certifed company can take clients' projects from the prototyping to the production stage. ■ Preferred tool & die/ Preferred Precision SHELTON, CT Booth #738 Injection molding services Specializing in the injection molding of silicone, thermoplastics, and thermoplastic elastomers for the medical device industry, Rogan Corp. partners with customers to produce engineered solutions for manufacturing value-added molded parts and assemblies.
