The right solution for every application
No matter which application area your medical device is intended for: Kistler supplies solutions precisely tailored to your objectives – solutions that deliver enhanced process transparency and end-to-end documentation.
Maximum quality – from the produced single components through to final acceptance
Kistler systems create the conditions for manufacturing medical devices of impeccable quality – equipping companies to meet future challenges and enhancing patients quality of life through safer products.
Cavity pressure measurement makes it possible to decide whether a produced part is good or bad while the injection molding process is still under way. Kistler’s process monitoring and control system ComoNeo analyses obtained cavity pressure data in real- time.
In processes where various components are assembled to produce a medical device, different Kistler sensors are deployed – as appropriate to the application area – to ensure that the product is assembled correctly.
All the functions have to be verified to ensure that the medical device can be used with absolute safety. On the insulin pen, for example, Kistler sensors test the spring force of the triggering mechanism to prevent incorrect dosage of the medication.
Documentation and data storage
Measured values and obtained process data in the preceding steps are processed as appropriate and made available to the customer. In conjunction with a direct manipulation-proof connection to the customer’s quality database, Kistler technology ensures that all quality-related data is stored securely.
Kistler offers its customers a special service so they can efficiently meet the strict requirements for the manufacture of medical devices: the small force and torque sensors used for these applications can be calibrated directly on-sight. This minimizes costly machine downtime and also eliminates complex acceptance procedures for the plant after the sensors have been calibrated.
Compliance with national and international standards and regulations is the essential and fundamental requirement for the manufacture of products in the medical technology sector.
