As a special feature at MD&M East, RAUMEDIC presented its latest developments in the field of silicone injection molding with the slogan “Silicone Intelligence Inside“. At MD&M East, from June 9 to 11, 2015, RAUMEDIC introduced innovative solutions for medical and pharmaceutical silicone products with complex requirement profiles at their MD&M East booth 1245.

Using pump segments as an example, RAUMEDIC informed the visitor at MD&M East about the world of silicone. High dosage accuracy represents an important criterion in medical engineering. The tubing and molded parts used need to fulfill tightest tolerances. This applies to pump devices which are used in hospitals as well as in homecare. Fields of application include enteral feeding pumps and pain management pumps.

“Silicone Intelligence Inside – made by RAUMEDIC” enables a direct integration of functions. Connectors, fixing elements as well as pressure sensors and bubble detection areas can be integrated without any additional parts or further processing steps. A combination of silicone and thermoplastic parts in one system is also possible.

For primary packaging products, e.g. prefilled syringes, RAUMEDIC fulfills the specifications of the ISO 15378 also for silicone components. Product examples are stoppers for drug containers or syringes. Based on DIN EN ISO 9001, ISO 15378 specifies a large number of additional requirements, particularly for primary packaging materials that come in contact with drugs.
