Why use plastic injection molding in the medical industry

The medical plastic injection molding process is cost effective and perfect for high volume production runs and components that require consistency and tight tolerances. Due to their versatile nature and the ability to be combined with metal, medical grade plastics have become the preferred material for a wide variety of electronic medical devices. Medical plastic injection molding delivers several advantages:

  • Improved ergonomics
  • Reduced weight
  • Increased functionality
  • Lower cost
  • Decreased burden of sterilization

Medical devices that are manufactured from injection molded plastic have led to a reduction in medical costs and infectious diseases, as well as improvements in pain management. Plastic injection molding directly contributes to greater patient safety and the ability of doctors to save more lives.

PEEK for medical devices

PEEK plastic has a number of properties that make it ideal for medical devices used for long term, in body applications. It is highly resistant to chemicals, has strength and stiffness similar to bone while being more flexible than steel or titanium, is accepted by the body, and will not break down over time due to solvents, lipids, blood, or enzymes. Plus, PEEK plastic components engineered by Aztec Plastic can be machined to nearly any configuration and are easily sterilized through E-beam, steam, and gamma methods.
