Why MTDMedical Focus

Minimally Invasive Surgery

The Market

Advancements in the surgical space have focused on less-disruptive, minimally invasive, and laparoscopic procedures, creating a need for more sophisticated tools and instrumentation. 

Needs & Challenges

Many micro medical surgical components require ultra-thin wall stocks, high aspect ratios, and extremely tight tolerances.

The challenge with thermoplastics is knowing when a seemingly minor change in the design or an alternative thermoplastic material choice can significantly impact the quality and cost-effectiveness of the part.

Ultem Clip for Infusion Pump

In this application the S-shaped geometry was used as a molded spring to create friction in a infusion pump.

Overmolded Catheter Tip

The tip design required extreme micro tooling precision to accomplish the tiny through-holes with +/- .001″ tolerances throughout.

Implantable Ligating Clip

The ligating clip, which snaps close, features a crescent-shaped window which measures 0.010″ (0.25 mm) wide.
