Innovations in Medical Products Made on Morgan Press Equipment
One company did early prototyping on infusion pump design and later the limited production for the FDA qualification program. Infusion pumps are installed on the patient for continuous application of medicines (as needed). Examples of medicines dispensed are insulin, painkillers and antibiotics.
Numerous users have on-going development and short-run production for cardiac products such as catheters, pacemakers and monitoring equipment. These products are ideal for the prototype and low-volume economics of Morgan-Press applications because of the demands of FDQ protocols prior to approval for consumer use and marketing.
Several companies use the equipment for material testing commonly molding tensile and impact specimen. These materials are thus evaluated to see if they meet performance requirements as well as biocompatibility for materials that are implanted in bodies. Other companies test incoming materials to check for proper durameter (hardness) of the material before its use in production.
Several users manufacture custom connectors for medical devices and diagnostic equipment. The simple operation and easy access of the equipment lends itself to economical tooling and operator handling (loading inserts, unloading parts) for these low-volume applications.
