Plastic Injection Molding and Injection Molding Medical Devices


Injection molding is a process utilized in the medical industry for the production of various parts. This procedure has numerous advantages over traditional methods. One of the main advantages of injection molding is its ability to meet the requirements of the medical industry. This process can also be utilized to produce medical equipment that are designed to meet the exact requirements of the industry.


Benefits of Injection Molding Medical Devices

Medical suppliers have been using plastic injection molding for their various components and devices to improve their quality and efficiency. Applications including but not limitation as follows:

Beakers, test tubes and other containers

Implantable components

Surgical equipment and components

Housings and casings for medical and laboratory equipment

Orthopedics

Drug delivery equipment and components

Medical device plastic injection is a process commonly used to produce medical equipment parts. This procedure can be utilized for applications that require high volume and precise production.


Medical Equipment

Through injection molding, medical device manufacturers can benefit from the many advantages of this process.

1. The nature of plastic injection molding allows it to be one of the most cost-efficient manufacturing processes for high volumes.

2. Injecting medical devices with high volume produces components with exceptional accuracy. This process is critical to the successful operation of the devices.

3. One of the most critical factors in plastic injection molding is the material selection. This is because many of the components used in the process are medical grade.

4. Strong & Durable — Many injection molding plastics are durable enough to resist harsh conditions. They also provide heat resistance.

The medical device injection molded plastic materials used in this process are designed to resist contaminants and are easily sterilized.


Medical Device Plastic Injection Molding Considerations

Due to the complexity of the medical device industry, several considerations must be considered when planning and manufacturing plastic injection parts. These includes:

1. Due to the FDA's regulations for sterility and cleanliness, it's very important that the parts you use for medical manufacturing meet these standards.

2. The requirements for conformity to standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) are widely applicable to various industries, including medical equipment manufacturing. Requirements for medical components are generally met through the following guidelines. This document may also be required for certain applications or products. Be sure that your facility or partner is aware of the requirements related to these standards.

3. The material used for medical applications should have properties that are suitable for these applications.

4. Bio-implants must be able to endure the harsh conditions of the human body, such as heat, liquid, and corrosive substances. Injecting plastic components into bio-compatible implants can help minimize these obstacles.

5. Durability is very important when it comes to materials for medical applications. There is no better way to protect yourself from getting injured than by choosing a material that has the necessary break resistance.


Material Selection for Medical Device Injection Molding

Now that you know the various advantages of plastic injection molding, it's time to consider some of the materials that will best meet your needs.


Silicone - For flexible components and parts, especially those with a key requirement of flexibility, silicone is often a material of choice. It provides exceptional biocompatibility and durability.

PC - This material is very durable and has excellent impact and vibration resistance. It is also resistant to UV light and heat.

PE - Due to its high molecular weight, this material is ideal for the surfaces of wearable devices and prosthetics. It can be cleaned through an autoclave.

PP - This material is ideal for parts that must be sterilized repeatedly through an autoclave. Due to its high heat resistance, it can endure radiation resistance.
