Testing new generation medical devices
It is hard to over-estimate the importance of quality and reliability in the area of medical devices, since the lives and well-being of individuals are at stake and the industry is so tightly regulated. It is, therefore, a well-established area of standards and of scrutiny. The global medical devices industry is extensive, and includes the simplest of mass-produced components to highly specialised one-off items and new materials development. With ever-increasing demand to drive down mass production costs and frequent introduction of new safety-oriented devices, it is essential that medical device manufacturers ensure quality throughout the design and manufacturing process.
Production quality guaranteed
Mecmesin force and torque test systems are ideal for testing the physical strength of all kinds of medical devices. Whether it is testing the glide force of syringes, the torque integrity of Luer connectors, the actuation force of drug delivery devices, the strength of prosthetic joints and bone screws; Mecmesin testers provide an easy-to-use and affordable solution.
Precision measurement with the Helixa-i
The Helixa-i automated torque tester is relied on by professionals around the world to objectively assess the quality of their precision components and fine assemblies. It delivers both consistency and reliability by controlling the key test parameters of torque, angle and speed.
Its sensitivity and precision alignment make it suitable for testing high-quality assemblies, such as those found in pharmaceutical and medical industries. Its versatile construction even allows for an axial force to be simultaneously applied whilst torque is measured - essential for products such as child-resistant closures.
The precision of the Helixa-i combined with Emperor control & acquisition software enable traceable results with full storage of raw data, a robust audit trail, full operator security and guaranteed repeatability.
