Contamination control challenges facing manufacturers of medical devices are covered by the second expert conference on industrial parts and surface cleaning in medical technology, which is offered by fairXperts GmbH in Tuttlingen, Germany, on 26 June.
The one-day seminar will provide information about cleaning methods and system technology, process chains and handling, and the inspection of cleaning results and process validation. The target audience comprises production, quality assurance, process engineering, and design and development experts and executives from companies that manufacture medical devices and their suppliers.
Medical technology, a special case
Turning, milling, stamping, casting and additive-manufacturing methods are deployed to produce medical devices just as much as items in other areas of industrial production. Cleaning requirements for components produced in these various ways frequently differ, but the objective is always the same: the removal of particulate and film impurities. This contamination primarily entails the categories of cooling lubricants, cutting and stamping oils, preservatives and parting compounds, cutting chips, burrs, dust and other processing residues.
At the same time, the materials used in medical technology, such as shape-memory polymers and metals and resorbable and biocompatible materials, add to the complexity of the cleaning step in production. This makes it necessary to adapt the various cleaning methods to the circumstances at hand. Also, these materials present challenges for product handling, inspection of cleaning results, and process validation.
