emdt.co.uk European Medical Device Technology Summer 2015 | 27 show preview: Medtec Ireland Exhibition Highlights Data management software ATS International is the developer of the ATS ADOS (attribute, dimensional, operational and shared) software suite, which is designed to be a reliable data management platform for supporting enterprise management systems. The suite of applications collects, reports and analyses data from diverse company operations and transfers the processed information to wherever in the enterprise it may be needed. This data management platform received the Frost & Sullivan award for new product innovation. ATS International Stand 805 Braiding equipment August Herzog Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG makes braiding equipment for use in forming such medical devices as bifurcated sutures and stents, flat to round sutures, and marked switch-out sutures safely and reliably. The equipment can produce braids from nitinol wire, Dyneema yarn and other ultrafine materials. An example of the company's engineering capability is its programmable Variation Braider, featuring 4 to 32 carriers with switchable crossings, specialised for the quick realisation of new ideas and for manufacturing samples. Also available is a tabletop braider. August Herzog Maschinenfabrik GmbH Stand 502 Titanium etching services Advanced Chemical Etching Ltd, a company that manufactures precision chemical-etched metal components, offers medical device companies capabilities in the proprietary TiME titanium molecular etching process. The well-tested, safe and reliable process is particularly suited for etching medical components, such as titanium cranial mesh, and is offered as an alternative to toxic hydrofluoric acid as a titanium etchant. The new etching chemistry was developed specifically to facilitate the etching of previously difficult-to-etch titanium and nitinol. It is engineered to cope with the tendency of titanium to form a hard-to-dissolve protective oxidisation coating when exposed to air. The technique enables tighter tolerances and high aspect ratios to be achieved with these materials. Advanced Chemical Etching Ltd Stand 704 Feeding platforms The automation specialist Mikron SA Boudry has developed a standard platform for its Tray Handler and Polyfeed component feeding systems for industrial assembly and test applications. The core of the next-generation platform is a PC-based control system that operates in a Windows 7 environment and offers extensive data acquisition and processing capabilities. This system allows control of a high-performance Cartesian robot running at speeds to 80 cycles per minute. Featuring enhanced stability and modularity in both hardware and software, the platform enables users to add functionalities to high-performance automated assembly and test systems based on Mikron G05 or Mikron EcoLine platforms. Mikron SA Boudry Stand 511 Digital measuring projector At Medtec Ireland, Zeiss will be showcasing their newly launched O-Select digital measuring projector. Thanks to its high level of automation and ease of use, 2D measurements can be completed quickly and reproducibly using this new system. The Zeiss O-Select system is suitable for a wide range of industries such as automotive, electronics and plastics and is particularly well suited to checking the dimensional accuracy of distances, radii or angles. Carl Zeiss Ltd Stand 707 Stock OEM components With the 2015 edition of its comprehensive products catalogue, the supplier of OEM disposable components Qosina offers easy browsing of thousands of stock components that are illustrated life-sized on a 1-cm grid. The company's large selection of parts for the medical OEM and pharmaceutical device manufacturer includes connectors, luers, clamps, adapters, clips, valves, needle hubs, stopcocks, haemostasis valves, Tuohy-Borst adapters, swabs and spikes. The supplier, operating a facility certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, will provide complimentary samples, just-in-time delivery, high-volume price discounts, and supply-chain management services.
