Fiber reinforced plastic has been used widely in the field of automobile and aviation.According to German aachen fraunhofer institute for production technology (IPT), the material also exists in the medical application of great potential.This research has developed a miniature pultrusion winding technology, able to complete production of minimally invasive device.Researchers now are working on processing thermoplastic fiber composite material, through the technology should be used in customized manufacturing of medical devices.

Pultrusion winding (Pullingwinding) is extruded with fibre winding the combination of the two kinds of process.After the technology microminiaturization, the fraunhofer would produce less than 1 mm in diameter of multilayer micro material, should be used to guide wire, casing with catheter.Through the precision positioning of the fiber, without interrupting production experience can adjust parts reverse performance with matching should use requirements.Made of these materials into devices has another advantage: because there is no related artifacts with metal, can be compatible with magnetic resonance imaging (fmri).

medical plastic device


At present, the fraunhofer IPT researchers are needed for manufacturing can be customized prosthesis implantation with pieces of thermoplastic fiber composite material to develop a way of processing and production system.The use of thermoplastics can make medical devices at the start of material hardening after forming into the shape of a can meet the demand of individual bones with.FraunhoferIPT said, a lot of thermoplastic matrix materials before this height was agreed to use in medical engineering field, so the don't have to go through a long license agreement.

This institute is pushing another project is to use laser welding to replace structures are more complex parts in the connection device used adhesive, and points out that the goal is a kind of perfect welding technology is introduced into the medical field.
