ITW Medical has been awarded more than 40 patents and 28 510Ks for design and manufacturing of filtration, flow control and fluid management components. Our engineers and manufacturing staff strive to deliver innovative thinking tht keeps products and processes on the cutting edge of technology. ITW Medical is also able to apply patents, processes and services from our sister divisions to help improve our current products and processes.
ITW Medical has the ability to build prototype tools quickly and cost efficiently. These prototype tools and prototype parts help our customers improve their designs and assemblies. These prototype tools also help ITW identify, reduce and eliminate problems that might arise before production even begins.
Rapid Prototyping Stereolithography: SLA and SLS Rapid prototyping can be used for quick evaluation of part designs (form and fit). These techniques include SLA (Stereolithography) and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering).
ITW Medical engineers work closely with resin suppliers to specify and utilize highly engineered thermoplastic resins when appropriate. These resins are typically used when the filter component also performs other functions including instances where highly engineered plastics, such as PPS (Polyphenylene Sulfide) and PPA (Polyphthalamide), are needed for replacing metal parts.
Custom Plastic Injection Molding ITW Medical is a custom molder capable of manufacturing difficult geometries and complex shapes. Our experienced manufacturing staff utilize state-of-the-art technology to meet the customer’s most challenging design demands. ITW Medical maintains flexible manufacturing cells to be proactive and responsive to each customer’s needs.
Flexible Molding Capacity ITW Medical injection molding presses range from small 10-ton clamping force machines up to large 300-ton clamping force machines. These machines range from vertical to horizontal molding machines for both straight injection molding and insert injection molding. These molding machines also range from hydraulic to all electric machines. They incorporate the latest technology when it comes to control panels and operator interfacing.
ITW uses the latest technology when it comes to pressure control. Cavity pressure transducers are used to help monitor and control the injection process, and sensors are tied into automation for improved quality control.
Post Injection Molding Automation Post molding automation is a key asset of ITW Medical. Assembly equipment, vision system equipment, and ultrasonic and spin welding equipment help provide more options for our customer base when it comes to assembled components.
Clean Room Manufacturing ITW Medical includes globally distributed 100,000 Clean Room-certified manufacturing facilities enabling cost-effective delivery of sterile components and devices to meet each customer’s logistics requirements.
ITW Medical engineering and design support groups have countless years of experience when it comes to designing for manufacturability as well as offering innovative solutions to provide value to our customer’s filtration needs.
ITW Medical also has the support of our ITW Corporate Technology Center and ITW Global Product Development Center (GPDC) located in the Glenview, IL area. This staff of experienced engineers and research developers provide valuable information for material analysis and testing, as well as new innovative product solutions.
Our CAD design software experience includes Pro-Engineering, Solidworks, Autocad, and UG. Moldflow and FEA software is also available to help bring parts to high-volume production faster and more efficiently
ITW Medical encompasses two brands, Filtertek and Coeur.
Filtertek designs and manufactures a range of standard and custom filters, check valves and technical mouldings for OEM customers worldwide for use in medical applications such as I.V. infusion and haemodialysis.
Coeur is a vertically integrated supplier of packaged sterile medical devices used in diagnostic and interventional procedures in markets around the world.
At ITW Medical, we not only understand how filtration, fluid control and fluid management affect a medical product's success, we know how they impact patient safety. We also recognize that the knowledge behind the manufacture of these devices has to keep pace with rapid advances in medical technology.
With so much riding on product performance, the design and development of components for critical medical applications takes design ingenuity, technical knowledge and manufacturing precision.
ITW Medical has developed filtration and fluid control and delivery devices for more than 40 years. Our customers are both large and small medical OEMs, and our capabilities encompass a wide range of applications.
Although innovative custom design is our strong suit, we put the same value-driven processes into the development of our standard products. So when you choose ITW Medical, you can be sure of a partner that puts as much into the development of your products as you do.
We provide a one stop shop for medical product development, from design to a finished sterile device or anywhere in between.
Let ITW Medical be your partner for Filtration, Flow Control & Fluid Management.
