Thermex-Thermatron MD&M West

MD&M West 2020: RF Technology in Medical Innovation

Last month, Thermex-Thermatron was privileged to attend the annual MD&M West trade show in Anaheim, California. MD&M West is a rich opportunity for professionals in the medical device community to gather and celebrate technological innovations in the medical industry. A group from our team exhibited the Thermex-Thermatron RF Platen Press with Automatic Front Load Shuttle, RF Switch, and PLC.

Cutting-Edge RF Technology

The technology featured in the RF Platen Press includes a front load shuttle, PLC, and RF switch. Our team of experienced engineers used robust design with cutting-edge technology to develop this system for optimum performance and durability. Ray Lund, President and CEO of Thermex-Thermatron, was also in attendance. “It was great to see so many of our medical customers at the MD&M West show this year,” Lund notes, “We were able to demonstrate the features of our RF Platen Press to many who stopped by our booth.” 

In medical industry applications, the RF Platen Press facilitates efficient, high-quality sealing of thermoplastic materials. While each feature of this system enables medical manufacturers to confidently tackle any thermoplastic sealing job, the newest feature that we will highlight is the RF Switching Network.

Our RF Switching Network technology allows the generator to move through two cycles during one press closure, even with variable power levels and sealing times. The integrated switch is incorporated at the press, allowing the press to switch the polarity of the sealing electrodes at a preset power and time setting. During this switching process, the RF is turned off in order to reduce arcing for a seal of the highest quality.

In the medical field, this innovative technique earns its respect by achieving a well balanced seal where tubing is placed between two sheets of vinyl. This solution allows for bag outlines, tube insertions, and tear seals to all be achieved in a single press closure, thereby reducing production time and cost with no loss of excellence.
