67. Industrial Products Used In The Medical Supply Industry

The medical supply industry is a large, growing market with a diverse production tooling portfolio. The products they produced satisfy the needs of hospitals, surgeons, and doctors across the world. Everything from daily disposable instruments like syringes and catheters to sutures and dressings as well as hospital beds and dental appliances are manufactured. Even latex gloves and surgical masks are produced within the industry.

This large assortment of products and needs calls into play many different production tooling processes; it also demonstrates the need for an entire range industrial products and industrial supplies to support production.

Since many of the instruments used in the medical industry are designed to be disposed of after a single application, plastics are often used. They typically require industrial products that can be injection molded or cast in plastic into the appropriate shape. Using the syringe example, the barrel, body, and plunger of the hypodermic are the plastic molds. Custom molds and die cast plates are constructed out of stainless steel to conform to the FDA standards of cleanliness for medical usage. In this case, there are no material alternatives.

Precision Tooling and Diagnostics
Many of the instruments used in the medical field must conform to extremely stringent tolerances. Quality assurance is maintained with the use of industrial products such as electronic calipers, digital micrometers, and microscopes. Additionally, workholding industrial supplies of the highest quality are used, from tungsten carbide locators to pneumatic vises, to ensure reliable production lines. Leveling devices and vibration control are achieved with the use of anti-vibration pads and vibration mounts to satisfy material tolerances.

The medical supply industry covers a wide range of products that are used to practice medicine. From surgical tools to hospital beds and more, demand has created a robust manufacturing industry that is spread between nearly every type of production process from metalworking to carpentry to fabric weaving. This diversity requires the same flexibility in available industrial products and supplies.
