Medical Device Manufacturers need quick effective solutions

Bringing medical devices to market promptly is no easy task, as it demands more than precision technology, dependable delivery, and easy-to-use products. Ensuring the painless development and approval of the latest innovation requires shorter design, manufacturing and validation cycles. Here Micromech and Parker Electromechanical Automation products can help. From HMI and software to all the electromechanical motion components needed, integrated automation solutions are specifically designed to reduce both time-to market and engineering costs while still  enabling compliance with the current stringent government regulations.

Speed to Solution

Medical device manufacturers count on dependable delivery to accord with the pressure of impending deadlines. Unparalleled application and service support mean downtime is virtually eradicated.

Ease Compliance Challenges for FDA Part 11              
Implementing Parker’s InteractX™ Windows- HMI software which includes “Easy E-sig” tools, so that no special programming is required to comply with the latest regulations and industry standards. It’s never been simpler to collect a complete record of events or change the requests, identities and approvals that are needed to establish an effective audit trail on a machine or group of machines.

Customisation Made Simple

Customised user interface with our InteractX ™ software utilising Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). The InteractX™ open architecture supports ActiveX® 3rd party tools.

Powerful Machine Control

The ACR family of controllers ensures effective machine control by integrating hundreds of I/O points with advanced control capabilities. This gives flexibility when developing applications and is particularly beneficial when incorporating significant error handling routines.

Automatic Recognition

Plug in and spin! Use the Aries Series servo drive with ‘smart encoder’ motors and auto-configure the drive. Add the ACR9000 controller to take advantage of the ‘Drive Talk’ feature and access all the drive parameters automatically, to improve overall machine diagnostic capabilities.

Precision Mechanics Technology

High-precision positioning tables integrate linear motors or ground ballscrews and may be prepared for cleanroom operation. The designs combine low-cost extruded aluminium with machined bases allowing submicron precision straight out of the box.
