Application potential of fiber reinforced plastics in medical devices

fiber reinforced plastics have been widely used in automotive and aviation fields. According to the Fraunhofer Institute of production technology (IPT) in Aachen, Germany, this material also has great potential in medical applications. The Institute has developed a micro extrusion winding process, which can realize the mass production of minimally invasive devices. Researchers are currently working on processing thermoplastic fiber composites through this technology for the manufacture of customized medical devices

pullingwinding is the combination of extrusion and filament winding. After miniaturizing this technology, Fraunhofer can produce multilayer micro-13 with a diameter of less than 1 mm Air source pressure: 0-0.7mpa (supplied by the user of the air source) profile, which is used for guide wire, sleeve and conduit. Through the precise positioning of the fiber, the torsional performance of the parts can be adjusted without interrupting the production process. Precautions: match the application requirements. Devices made of these materials have another advantage: they are compatible with magnetic resonance imaging because there are no metal related workpieces

at present, Fraunhofer IPT researchers are developing a processing method and production system for thermoplastic fiber composites needed to manufacture customizable prosthetics and implants to expand market share. The use of thermoplastics enables medical devices to be shaped to meet individual bones and needs after the material hardens at the beginning. Fraunhofer IPT said that many thermoplastic matrix materials have been previously approved for use in the field of medical engineering, so there is no need to go through a long-term license approval process

another item of force value data being promoted by the institute directly shows that the purpose is to use laser welding to replace the adhesives used in the connection of multi-component devices with complex structures, and points out that the purpose of this is to introduce a perfect welding technology into the medical field
