Mecmesin solutions for the medical device sector.

Medical device manufacturers operate in one of the world’s most competitive and highly-regulated industries, where patient safety is critical.

Product reliability and lives hinge on compliance to standards, time-to-market and traceability.

Mecmesin force & torque test systems are ideal for testing the physical strength of all kinds of medical devices. Our test software ensures traceable results with full storage of raw data, a robust audit trail, full operator security and guaranteed repeatability.

Whether it is testing the torque integrity of Luer connectors, the glide force of syringes, the physical strength of drug delivery devices, prosthetic joints & bone screws; Mecmesin testers provide you with an easy-to-use and affordable solution.

Test to ASTM, BS EN, ISO, DIN, CEN, Ph. Eur. and USP standards

Standards

We purchase Mecmesin products because of their versatility, and the excellent local support we receive in Mexico. This particular system works extremely well on our (infusion bag tensile strength) application.

We have used Mecmesin equipment for a number of years to perform compression and tension tests on helical springs intended for use in our respiratory drug delivery devices. We now estimate that every second, more than a thousand people rely on a Bespak device to help them breathe and as our testing requirements have grown, so too has our relationship with Mecmesin. Today, we rely upon their advanced test systems to guarantee the quality of our supplied materials.

Having developed a medical device from a blank sheet of paper to a prototype level, we entered into a significant programme of test and development. Previous smaller test programs had used bespoke machinery developed in-house, which although suitable for the task, lacked versatility for the broad range of tests to be carried out, particularly from a programming standpoint. The test programme involved some 40 evaluations, to be conducted in a very condensed timeframe.

The MultiTest 1-i has been purchased to test the physical properties of raw materials and finished products. The 10N loadcell is able to measure to two decimal places, which gives a very sensitive and accurate reading, and this test works very well. The MultiTest 1-i meets our needs and with time has proved user friendly.

I am very pleased with both the service from Mecmesin and the MultiTest 10-x test system and would recommend it for testing many of the aspects of soft tissue repair in orthopaedics. The MultiTest 10-x is easy-to-use and ideal for this application, of testing the fixation of bones and tendons around a prosthesis inserted for fracture of the shoulder.

The Mecmesin force and torque products are simple to use, reliable and have significantly increased the speed of design development at the company. The programming was found to be intuitive and calculations and data export features particularly useful, especially when setting up programs for non-technical staff.

Pressure sensor calibration is key to the accurate ‘occlusion’ monitoring performance of Cardinal Health medical infusion devices. A precise, repeatable and reliable ‘occlusion’ force calibration tool is essential for our customers, service personnel and production use. Mecmesin have provided expert design advice, equipment samples and test strategies to ensure Cardinal Health have been able to achieve these aims.

The performance to standard of our biopsy devices is critical, and our MultiTest systems enable a rapid and accurate assessment of every one. The repeatability of the test cycle, and above all the traceability of each unit under test, gives us the guarantees we need.

Over the course of my PhD I have developed a new methodology to physically test the mechanical performance of teeth using the Mecmesin MultiTest 2.5-i. At the start of my project I needed a small, low cost, but accurate materials testing machine which could be programmed, and fitted, to run a large number of different test programs. The easy-to-use interface, accuracy and reliability of the MultiTest 2.5-i and the excellent service from Mecmesin has made my project run smoothly and has produced highly publishable results.
