Injection moulded parts
for medical equipment
Many of the plastic housings, injection moulded parts and final products that Pekago produces are ultimately used by OEMs in the medical sector. We produce components for medical equipment using compact injection moulding techniques or TFC. If you wish, we can even add a coating or inserts.
Injection moulded parts for medical equipment
Pekago has years of experience with the production of plastic housings for medical equipment. As a result, we know all about the required or desired plastics, tolerances, chemical resistance, flame-retardant properties and finishing, even when it comes to equipment that is tested in accordance with the IEC-60601 medical standard.
Pekago works together with prominent medical organisations in, among others, the Netherlands and Germany, including Dräger Medical KgaA, Getinge AB, Alphatron Medical Innovations and B. Braun AG.
Plastic housings for medical equipment
Every technique listed on our website is utilised for the production of housings for medical equipment: injection moulding, TFC/SFM, coating and assembly. For example, we produce housings for CT scanners, imaging equipment, operation tables and heart monitors.
Using injection moulding and TFC, Pekago can produce both very small and very large medical housings with dimensions of up to circa 1.2 metres. Because the annual production volume of such medical equipment can range from a few dozen to tens of thousands of units, we are happy to advise you on the plastics, techniques, moulds and finishing that offer the most value for money.
Our plastic housings and technical components find their way to both large and small medical companies, active in the following branches:
- Anaesthetic and respiratory technology
- Dental technology
- Diagnostic imaging
- Hospital equipment
- Patient monitoring and therapies
- Technical aids for disabled
Your product design, our expertise
It starts with your design: you have a product that must be provided with a good plastic housing and other injection-moulded components. Pekago converts your design into a manufacturable injection-moulded or TFC/SFM component, and also takes care of mould construction, production and, if desired, even the complete final assembly.
Inspiration for injection moulding and TFC/SFM
The following examples represent a selection of the available options for medical devices at Pekago. In all instances, Pekago has optimised the customer's design for injection moulding, built the moulds and undertook the production.
Robust, self-supporting base for a kidney dialysis device
Suppose you need a base for a device. You can manufacture a construction with, for example, a welded metal frame and a cover consisting of plastic panels. You could also injection mould a one-piece component that reduces assembly costs to almost 0. TSG is the solution for this.
Medication box: the next level in medicine issuance
Alphatron Medical Innovations in Rotterdam is working hard to create multifunctional intelligent care workplaces. Pekago does the injection moulding, TSG, lacquering, printing, assembly and inspection of a complete medication box in a 100 and 1 different designs.
CT scanner covers
Design and safety go hand in hand with this set of covers for a CT scanner. These injection-moulded components are partly provided with silver lacquer and inserts. The right plastic ensures a high-quality appearance. The right design ensures a perfectly smooth surface.
Rinsing sink for endoscope cleaning
This sink with accompanying lid operates under extreme conditions. Endoscopes are cleaned daily in machines that are fitted with these injection-moulded components. In spite of the aggressive chemicals that are used, the injection-moulded container operates without any problems.
Housing for an operating table
This example shows the possibilities of TFC (or SFM): The two halves of the medical housing are fixed over the electronics of an operating table. The housing is made of flame-resistant (UL 94 V0) plastic, lacquered and fitted with inserts, printing and glued components.
Mask clips for patient immobilisation
Pekago does the injection moulding for mask clips used to immobilise patients during radiological examination. We developed complex but reliable moulds in collaboration with the customer.
Tube-feeding holder (for catheter feeding)
This transparent plastic holder, which is made from polycarbonate, is used for both pump and catheter feeding. Pekago developed the complete holder based on a customer’s model. We do the injection moulding for this product, attach the straps and package it automatically in customer-specific packaging.
Pekago has an ISO 13485 certification, which means we are able to produce (components for) medical equipment that meets this standard for risk reduction for patients and users. Download ISO 13485 certification.
