Glass quality and ion leaching as well as glass part assembly is a challenge in many applications in MedTech.
Glassomer offers the solution - our versatile technology enables direct production of intricate glass designs in fused silica, free of ion leaching.
PRECISION GLASS PARTS FOR MEDICINE TECHNOLOGY
Glass quality and ion leaching as well as glass part assembly is a challenge in many applications. Is ion leakage a problem for your part or do you need to glue your parts to holders manually? Think about producing in high-purity fused silica parts - without any ion leakage with integrated holders.
Conventional glass types suffer from loss of ions over time – high-performance parts and containers therefore rely on high-purity fused silica, which significantly enhances the costs.
Also, the integration of glass parts into assemblies is complex and a major factor in costs. Often parts are glued, which reduces their chemical and thermal stability and requires manual labor.
With the high freedom of design combined with high precision of the Glassomer process, producing full glass parts or attaching holder directly to the glass is simple and can make all the difference for your process. On top of that, the high-purity fused silica shows no leaching and is fit for any medical application.
Glass parts that are easily sterilized for more economical parts – durable, reusable and precise.
EXAMPLES OF FUSED SILICA MEDTECH PRODUCTS
ILLUMINATION OPTICS FOR ENDOSCOPES
Even illumination for maximum visibility: illumination optics from fused silica. These high-purity optics do not suffer from leaching, can be sterilized and reused.
Glass designs from fused silica for highly effective imaging optics. Single parts without assembly and customized part integration.
