because lives depend on them
Doctors, nurses and rescue squad technicians should not need to worry
whether life-saving medical equipment will start up and run properly.
That is why Saft’s battery solutions for medical applications are all made to
meet the toughest standards of reliability, durability and efficiency.
With Saft battery systems, portable equipment, mobile workstations,
patient-worn devices, respirators, ventilators, electric wheels and other
medical devices will start up immediately, even after long periods of storage
or in extreme temperatures.
Whether built upon nickel, primary lithium or rechargeable lithium
technologies, Saft batteries for the medical sector are lightweight, cost
effective, and extremely durable.
Contact Saft for to discover how our battery systems can ensure your
medical staff never needs to think about whether their equipment will work
when they need it.
Designing a medical device and pondering if metal injection molding (MIM) is the right technology for the project? As a design engineer, do the following questions come to mind when
specifying MIM into a design: What type of material is best suited for
my needs? What design features can be manufactured into my design
with minimal added costs? These questions can now be answered with a
new, innovative app developed by Kinetics Climax.
Kinetics MIM smart phone application was introduced for design
engineers interested in receiving metal alloy selection and design advice
for their potential MIM components. Kinetics has always had a focus
on being the world’s technology leader in the MIM process. With that
comes a commitment to providing potential users of MIM with useful
technological resources, such as its material selector and design guide.
The material selector matches material performance criteria to suitable
alloys and then provides material property data sheets. The design guide
helps designers get the most from MIM by defining design requirements
across a wide range of searchable categories.
Kinetics’ has always worked to foster the values of the MIM
The Kinetics MIM app is the company’s
recent effort to help users experience
successful results on their MIM applica-
tion designs. Additional efforts are already
underway to incorporate updates to the app
to include Kinetics’ predictive PCpk tool to
assess dimensional tolerance capabilities of
an application. The benefit of PCpk is based
on a mathematical model that accurately de-
fines what can and cannot be manufactured
with the MIM process. When the designer’s specifications exceed the
capabilities of MIM, the PCpk tool can provide achievable specifications
for the designer to consider or use when evaluating the specifications for
mating components in their products.
Kinetics MIM is now available for FREE. The app is available in the U.S.
