New Developments in Catheter Shaft Components – Part 2

This Webinar focuses on advancements in catheter shaft componentry with a deeper dive into film cast technology. Specifically, we will hone in on polyimide and lubricious polyimide. In this presentation, a mix of polymer material science, specifications of film cast products, and engineering considerations for polyimide use will be discussed. We will also cover new developments for other catheter components such as high ratio heat shrinks for reflow operations as well as peelable heat shrinkable fusing sleeves.

LCP Introduction to Liquid Crystal Polymers

Liquid crystal polymers (LCPs) present a special category of material which straddles the boundary between an ordinary solid and a liquid. Different from typical thermoplastics such as polyesters and other aromatic polymers, LCPs have significant higher order structure particularly apparent in their liquid phase. Learn about how LCP monofilament has recently been incorporated as catheter braiding and, as a non-metal, is poised to help create the first fully MRI-compatible catheter.

Solutions for Medical Applications

Zeus offers a wide range of biomedical extrusions to get you where you need to be within the body.

A Better Way to Manage Calculations

When your projects require technical calculations, it’s all too easy to resort to spreadsheets. While sufficient for certain applications, spreadsheets weren’t designed as a comprehensive tool for managing engineering calculations. Maple gives you a powerful tool that can handle virtually every calculation you throw at it. Maple also allows you to easily validate, document, retain, reuse, and modify your calculations, reducing risk while saving time and effort in both current and future projects.

Learn the Right Way to Manage Technical Calculations

Calculations are a valuable piece of intellectual property for every project, and there are better and worse ways to take care of this valuable asset. Learn how Maple can help treat calculations as a valuable, structured asset, and enable the tracking, validation, and reuse of calculations. See how Maple helps you share calculations easily, and export your calculations for use in other tools.

All About Digital Twins & Virtual Commissioning

A Digital Twin is a virtual representation of your product, and the perfect companion to lower the risks involved in machine-level system integration. Learn how these technologies help you create better products using intelligent, simulation-based information that informs product design and motion control strategies.

Making the Most of your Machine: Using Virtual Commissioning to Reduce Cycle Times without Hardware Upgrades

Virtual commissioning is a valuable process that helps companies explore, test, and validate new designs, all while reducing the time and money spent on product development. Discover how Niigon Machines used virtual commissioning to improve the output of their existing machine by 25%, without relying on costly hardware upgrades.

New in 2021: Introducing Maple Flow

By providing a flexible, whiteboard-style environment, Maple Flow allows design engineers to easily sketch out and formalize technical ideas, revising and reordering content with simple drag-and-drop behavior. Users can add math, text, and images to a live, interactive document, and Maple Flow keeps all of the mathematics automatically updated. The Maple Flow environment handles the design calculations that lie at the heart of virtually all engineering projects, such as circuit analysis, beam loading, highway pavement design, and combustion.
