Material selection and substitution for medical devices

Join our webinar on Thursday, December 3 to discover how to find and select alternative materials for medical, pharmaceutical and healthcare applications. CES Selector provides the tools and data to enable a systematic approach to the materials selection process, ensuring confidence in early material selection decisions, and reducing materials-related design iterations.

    Identifying candidate materials for electrosurgical forceps handles. Visualization tools enable the user to trade off cost against component size (material volume).
  • Find out through case studies how CES Selector can be used in applications including implantable devices, surgical tools, instrument housing, and pharmaceutical packaging
  • Discover how to employ a systematic approach in considering metals, filled and unfilled polymers, biodegradable materials, composites and more
  • Learn how to find alternative materials for design improvement or in response to material supply disruption (e.g. Polyetherimide)
  • See how visualization tools can enable better decisions, such as the trade-off between cost and component size, and how these tools also support the communication of those decisions.

Who should join the web seminar?

This session will be of particular interest to:

  • Development engineers and designers
  • Project engineers, product engineers, and materials specialists.
