Plastic medical mould has revolutionized the healthcare industry by giving both researchers and doctors equipment that is safe, sterile and disposable. The result has been a drop in many medical costs and greater patient care. Lives have improved, and medical professionals are better able to prevent diseases from spreading.
The use of plastics in medicine is only becoming more common, and for good reason. Take a look at three key reasons the medical industry is welcoming plastics.
As a highly malleable and sturdy material, plastic is very useful in medicine. Medical plastic injection molding has made it possible to manufacture medical devices and equipment that are far more efficient, safe and clean. For example, plastics are found in almost all delivery devices, such as syringes, test tubes, certain polymers have also been highly successful at improving artificial limbs. Plastics are even increasingly used for surgical equipment. Additionally, plastics are found in eyeglasses and are used around magnetic MRI machines to keep those in the vicinity safe. Plastics are also credited with keeping children safer by being used in pharmaceutical packaging.
Anyone in the medical field will tell you that sterilization is crucial to patient health and preventing the spread of disease. The challenge in the past has been that facilities were often forced to reuse equipment. The introduction of plastic medical items has significantly improved the industry's ability to maintain sterile environments - both onsite at hospitals and out in the field. Additionally, sterile plastic packaging has given medical professionals a way to transport and store equipment as needed without adding to the risk of spreading disease.
JTP mould is specialized in making plastic medical moulds with good quality.
In product development, prototypes serve a valuable role as medical moulds that can be seen, touched and operated by designers to provide feedback during the development process. This is especially true for plastic medical devices, which are often designed to be manually manipulated by end users (doctors and/or patients) and which frequently must mate with other manufactured components.
The value of a prototype depends largely on three factors: the speed of manufacture (turnaround time), the accuracy in modelling the planned production part (dimensional, material, texture) and cost.
Historically, conceptual prototypes could be machined or carved out of solid blocks of clay, metal or plastic. While machining allows the planned production material to be used in the prototype, the quantity of parts that can be machined economically and quickly is low, and part geometry is limited to machinable features.
In some cases, parts are moulded in polymeric tools. For example, plastic prototype parts can be produced using PS/PP/PET plastic material.
Rapid plastic injection moulding has been successfully used by a number of plastic medical injection mold manufacturers for a variety of applications. It is often used to shorten the design cycle for custom medical tools, and if you want to know more information about the plastic medical injection mold, you can browse our product list.
