ANAHEIM, CA and FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Feb 1, 2017) - MD&M West 2017 Booths 1605 & 2818 will serve as the perfect platforms for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions to emphasize its rapid medical device prototyping that facilitates bringing medical devices to market faster and helps to drive innovation. In addition, its advanced liquid silicone rubber (LSR) technology delivers the highest precision, consistency and longevity to optimize performance and meet complex engineering challenges.
Rapid medical device prototyping and use of LSR Technology continues to exponentially grow due to increasing engineering and design investments from medical device manufacturers. Market Research firm Kalorama Information anticipates device manufacturers will invest seven percent of their revenues on research and development. This emphasis on innovation by the medical device community embraces the synergies between Trelleborg and its recent acquisition of Specialty Silicone Fabricators (SSF) in the areas of increased product expertise, decades of experience, worldwide access to engineering experts and expanded contract manufacturing services and products.
Drew Rogers, Global Director, Healthcare & Medical for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, says: "By substantially reducing the time and cost needed to produce prototypes while leveraging the engineering strengths of Trelleborg and its decades of experience in silicone, device manufacturers can confidently take on product development challenges they once shied away from and instead gain a competitive advantage by delivering innovative, better performing, higher quality devices."
Attendees at MD&M West are encouraged to visit Trelleborg at booths 1605 & 2818 to discuss the newest developments of rapid prototyping and LSR technology as well as view an array of solutions for demanding medical, biotech and pharmaceutical applications in thermoplastics, silicone and other elastomers.
