In cooperation with ophthalmologists, DUALIS Medtech GmbH and other companies, Fraunhofer EMFT has developed a concept for an implantable pump system as part of the BMBF funding project MIKROAUG. It is intended to permanently regulate intraocular pressure and help in the treatment of eye diseases such as glaucoma or phthise.

At COMPAMED 2017, Fraunhofer EMFT is presenting a new microdosing system for the controlled dosing of very small liquid quantities. Two piezoelectrically driven silicon micromembrane pumps form the core of the system. The results can be documented via a microcontroller, the micropumps can be controlled and the desired target flow rate can be set.

Pivot diaphragm pumps from Schwarzer Precision utilize the force-enhancing effect of a mechanical lever to build up high pressure in the pump head. The lever drives two oval diaphragms alternately. The high-volume flow rate prevents the intake of foreign air.

Micro annular gear pump mzr-11540 of the modular pump series operates with high dynamics, low pulsation and excellent precision in delivery as well as high repeatability in metering. The pump of HNP Mikrosysteme is suitable for low to high viscosity liquids and a differential pressure of up to 10 bar.
