The foundation for any medical device is the material used to make it. At Biomerics, material science is at the heart of our business. In fact, the word ‘merics’ in Biomerics is a derivation of ‘polymerics’.
The type of material used in manufacturing will determine a part’s physical properties (i.e. dimensional stability, strength, clarity, chemical resistance, biocompatibility, biostability etc.), molding process (i.e. shrinkrate, cycle time, process conditions, etc.), and tool design (i.e. cooling, draft angles, materials, etc.).
Biomerics’ engineers help customers select the ideal material based on application requirements such as design inputs, regulatory requirements, and cost objectives. The complete scientific injection molding process will optimize the part design, tool design, and process window for a given material.
