PRODUCT OF THE MONTH — Introducer Sheath

Freudenberg Medical, Jeffersonville, IN, has launched a new introducer sheath for medical device companies looking to accelerate time to market with a unique white label device. The FlexSeal® introducer sheath is designed for companies looking to access new design options for improving nextgeneration catheter and delivery systems or reduce time when building new feature sets into products.

The adjustable FlexSeal introducer sheath with hydrophilic coating enables support access for large bore catheter procedures. It maintains hemostasis after multiple, large catheter insertions, and it supports procedures requiring multiple devices or a wide range of device sizes. The composite shaft balances flexibility and pushability. Because of its excellent kink resistance, it inserts through challenging anatomies while maintaining lumen patency. The hydrophilic coating provides improved insertion and tracking, and the shaft and dilator profile enables smooth insertion performance.

Probe Pin

A new stamped spring probe is available from Plastronics, Irving, TX. The H-Pin is designed to cut the cost of contact pins used in electronics reliability testing and compression-style board-to-board connectors. The H-Pin delivers the mechanical, electrical, and thermal performance of a pogo-style spring probe, but because of advances in the manufacturing process, it cuts the cost by 30–50 percent. The pin has a working range up to 1 mm with a flat spring rate and can be utilized up to 15 GHz with –1.0 dB loss. It can carry up to 4 A of current and withstand temperatures up to 200 °C. Available in various lengths and pitch sizes as low as 0.2 mm, the pins are manufactured using a high-volume BeCu stamping process and a high-speed assembly and inspection process that can produce up to 400 pins per minute.

Laser Marking and Cutting Systems

Control Micro Systems, Orlando, FL, has developed turnkey laser marking and cutting systems for the medical sector. A high-power Ytterbium fiber laser can terminate and seal braided 304 and 316 stainless guidewire that is pulled from a reel and cut to length. The laser welds the individual strands together to prevent unraveling and creates a semispherical tip on each end. For latex catheter manufacturing, the eyelets at the catheter ends can be quickly cut with little to no debris or remelt material. The system includes the laser, optics, robots, programmable stages and other automation, and vision systems for part detection and/or process results verification.
