Laser Direct Structuring for Medical Device Development
Laser Direct Structuring offers medical design engineers a way to consolidate the footprint/size in the construction of interconnects by creating electronic circuit pathways on the medical device housing or chassis. The circuits that are created have a toughness with good adherence and physical construction that can improve the overall product quality.
3D-MIDs have been used successful for many years in medical and electronic applications, such as:
- Insulin Pumps/Chassis
- Dental Tools
- Dental Rinsing Units
- Cauterizing Tools
- Touch Sensors
- Temperature Sensors
- IV Regulators
- Glucose Meters
- Hearing Aids
- Temperature Diagnostic Pens
There are a wide range of plastics that can be used for both Laser Direct Structuring and 2-shot molding of 3D-MIDs depending on the application requirements. These include PC/ABS, PP, PBT/PET, PA, and LCP.
Medical applications take a considerable amount of development time and testing as compared with other end uses. It’s best to develop several technical solutions for 3D-MID application development for testing and validation.
