Ideas brought to life in Anatomy

Incisions and insights workshop series – „Heart, lungs, thorax“

Ideas brought to life in Anatomy

Workshop „Incisions and insights“ at the Institute of Clinical Anatomy and Cell Analysis (Source: M. Latz/BioRegio STERN Management GmbH)

(Stuttgart/Tübingen) – The „Incisions and insights – medtech engineers and medical practitioners in dialogue“ workshop series continued in June 2018, focusing on the heart, lungs and thorax. BioRegio STERN Management GmbH is organising this exceptional series of events in collaboration with the Inter-University Center for Medical Technologies Stuttgart-Tübingen (IZST) and the Verein zur Förderung der Biotechnologie und Medizintechnik e. V. (Society for the Promotion of Biotechnology and Medical Technology). This fourth event once again saw medical directors and senior consultants meet with medtech engineers directly at operating tables in Anatomy to discuss the innovations they desire and need.

The specialists from University Hospital Tübingen have already dubbed the series of events „Make a wish“, as it gives them the opportunity to express their wishes to medtech engineers for new or improved instruments and equipment unfiltered by purchasing or marketing departments. The fourth workshop in the series focused on the heart, lungs and thorax. Alongside the live streaming of surgery and practical exercises in the operating theatre at the Institute of Clinical Anatomy and Cell Analysis, the medical directors and senior consultants from University Hospital Tübingen Dr. Helene Häberle, Senior Consultant Surgeon at the Intensive Care Unit, Prof. Alfred Königsrainer, Medical Director of General, Visceral and Transplant Surgery, Prof. Christian Schlensak, Medical Director of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, and Prof. Roland Syha, Head of Interventional Radiology, discussed potential innovations. During this session, Prof. Peter P. Pott, Head of the Institute of Medical Device Technology at the University of Stuttgart, explained what is technically feasible. Prof. Arnulf Stenzl, Medical Director of the University Department of Urology and Head of the Inter-University Center for Medical Technologies Stuttgart-Tübingen (IZST), co-chaired the workshop together with the host Prof. Bernhard Hirt, Director of the Institute of Clinical Anatomy and Cell Analysis. Around 40 medtech company representatives attended the event, which offered them an impressive range of incisions and insights.

A surgeon got straight to work on artificial heart implantation and minimally invasive lung and oesophagus surgery on an anatomical specimen. While feeding a tube into the trachea, he explained to the medtech engineers – and to medical students linked via live stream – why a second working channel would be useful: „A further piece of equipment, such as forceps, often needs to be inserted. This may also result in bleeding, which blocks the one channel.“ During the subsequent demonstration of a minimally invasive lobectomy – the removal of an organ lobe – the operating team explained the need for a second camera in order to monitor inside the thorax from an additional angle. A stapler that can attach staples and bend 90 degrees was also added to the wish list, as was a cleaning function for the camera lens. However, the surgeons‘ discussion with Prof. Pott quickly revealed that much of what is technically feasible is not at all practicable in everyday surgery. „Extra functions require cables and switches. Yet at the same time, the equipment is expected to become increasingly smaller and easier to handle.“ Physical limitations also curb miniaturisation: „A camera lens can only be reduced in size to a certain extent, otherwise it no longer transmits anything,“ explained Prof. Pott.

The subsequent artificial heart transplant once again showed that the surgeons attach great importance to small and agile instruments to open up the chest as little as possible, as this is often associated with major discomfort for patients. To implant the 200-gramme artificial heart, just two incisions are needed. Unfortunately, one of these remains permanently open, as the control and battery power cables need to be fed outside. „Of course there’s already the option of a cable-free power supply for hearing aids, for example,“ said Prof. Pott. „If this fails, the patient no longer hears anything. But if this fails in the case of the heart, the patient expires.“

The demand for innovation is therefore high, giving developers and users plenty to discuss, and this is unlikely to be exhausted at the next event in February 2019, which will focus on „Extremities and the musculoskeletal system“. „As far as we know, there’s no comparable event anywhere else in the world,“ explained Dr. Klaus Eichenberg, co-organiser and Managing Director of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. „Surgeons are calling for new processes and instruments. I’m confident the local medtech businesses will take up this challenge and bring to life some of the ideas that were first formulated here.“

Asahi Kasei Medical Rheofilter (Source: @Asahi Kasei)

Düsseldorf, July 5, 2018 – On May 26, Asahi Kasei Medical, a leading manufacturer of products for hemodialysis and therapeutic apheresis treatment launched the first Apheresis Meeting Industry Symposium within the Industry Symposium program of the 55th ERA-EDTA Congress in Copenhagen. 500 participants joined the Symposium.

Therapeutic apheresis is used to treat a wide range of intractable diseases, such as autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, peripheral arterial disease, ulcerative colitis, neurological diseases or lipid disorders. Asahi Kasei Medical, founded in 1974 and the first company to globally introduce the hollow fiber separation technology, is offering therapeutic apheresis products that use membrane separation and selective adsorption technology to enable the treatment of many intractable diseases that cannot be treated using drugs. Therapeutic apheresis is increasingly used in the field of preventive medicine.

The membrane used in hollow fiber separation technology only permits plasma and proteins to pass through. Cellular components such as erythrocytes, leukocytes and thrombocytes are filtered out through the fine pores of the special hollow fibre membrane. Plasma and pathogenic substances can be removed, the plasma can be purified and returned to the patient.

During the Apheresis Meeting Industry Symposium, Professor Antonio Santoro (Bologna, Italy) chaired three sessions on Therapeutic Apheresis respectively held by Professor Lionel Rostaing (Grenoble, France), Dr. Alfonso Ramunni (Bari, Italy) and Professor Christoph Wanner (Würzburg University, Germany).

The first session by Professor Christoph Wanner titled „Lipid Apheresis and PCSK9-Antibodies:
Complementary or Competitive?“ explained how high plasma Lipoprotein(a) levels are related with the risk of myocardial infarction in the general population and which preventive action the apheresis treatment exerts by removing Lipoprotein(a) from patient“s blood.

The second session, „Rheopheresis in peripheral artery disease“ presented by Dr. Alfonso Ramunni, focused on removal of Fibrinogen from patient“s plasma and how it impacts peripheral vascular diseases such as Ischemic Diabetic Foot, Critical Limb Ischemia, Sudden Hearing Loss or Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

The third and last session, held by Professor Lionel Rostaing, „Desensitization in ABO incompatible kidney transplant candidates in order to achieve long term outcome“ explained about apheresis treatment efficiency with graft survival in ABO incompatible patients.

ERA-EDTA (European Renal Association – European Dialysis and Transplant Association), founded in 1963 aims at fostering the advancement of science and clinical work in nephrology, dialysis, renal transplantation, hypertension and related diseases with a strong focus on bettering patient“s health. It counts 7, 253 members.

DKT 2018: ZEON Strengthens Market Leader Position in Specialty Rubbers

DKT 2018: ZEON Strengthens Market Leader Position in Specialty Rubbers

Zeon Corporation Plant

ZEON Corporation, Japan, represented by the European subsidiary ZEON Europe GmbH exhibits at the Deutsche Kautschuk Tagung (DKT; German Rubber Conference) in Nuremberg, 2-5 July 2018, a triannual international major event for the rubber industry. In hall 12 booth 325, ZEON will meet and greet the business partners and present the latest innovations and updates of ZEON activities, particularly in Europe. Interested parties are invited to discuss how to improve the long term performance of HNBR compounds at ZEON“s presentation in the conference program (lecture session 3 July, 8:30 a.m., Hall Paris). ZEON brings the following highlights into the focus of this event:

HNBR – Hydrogenated nitrile rubbers are well known in the automotive industry for their resistance to fuels, lubricating oils, coolants and other media and have a long history in the engine sealing components. However, the recent trends in engine cooling have resulted in the use of more aggressive coolant technologies and higher temperature performance requirements, from 125°C in the past up to 150°C recently and in some cases in combination with low temperature requirements as low as -40°C. To tackle this challenge has become the focus, in order to bring Zetpol® to the higher competitive level like Fluoroelastomers.

Based on the next generation polymer technology, ZEON introduced high performance HNBR (HP-Zetpol®), that contain unique architecture and a specific cure site monomer. ZEON“s application technologists have developed compounds based on this novel material, which can offer better heat resistance and significantly improved compression set resistance compared to the conventional peroxide-cured HNBR. Dr. Björn Nelson, Technical Service Manager concludes, „the improvement of compression set resistance is magnified over longer ageing time and especially in this cross-sectioned articles, such as O-rings. This makes HP-Zetpol® a material of choice for the recent coolant technologies“. Detailed information will be presented in the lecture program.
ZEON enhances the capability to supply the innovative material HP-Zetpol®, hence the production capacity in Kawasaki, Japan will be extended in the near future. In parallel ZEON is continuously increasing the efficiency of two other Zetpol® production facilities in Takaoka, Japan and in Texas, USA in order to fulfil steadily increasing market demand of ZEON“s top quality products.

HT-ACM – The automotive region Europe is the key market for ZEON“s innovations in the acrylic rubbers. HyTemp® ACM have been established in the automotive market for sealings and gaskets as well as for hoses in the engine air management system. Its resistance against high temperature and oil supports the development of most popular modular engine design at OEMs. ZEON keeps developing new types of acrylic rubbers to face the constantly challenging market requirements: engine downsizing, combined platforms and emission reductions. The novel HyTemp® H570 is able to maintain the maximum high temperature resistance of HT-ACM whilst at the same time improving low temperature and oil resistance performances. For CAC hose applications, ZEON continues to improve the polymer robustness to increase the physical properties retention after ageing, which is crucial for certain OEM specifications, without jeopardizing the dynamic resilience and extrusion speed. Talk to us for further information!

TPV – Zeotherm®, a familiar brand name for heat and oil resistance applications of thermoplastic vulcanizate in the automotive sector. The unique properties of Zeotherm®, a polyblend of polyamide and acrylic rubber, offer various advantages like weight and cost reduction, simple design, easy processing and recyclability. The blow moulding grades of Zeotherm® with a hardness range of 90 Shore A up to 40 Shore D have settled their position in the market of cold side CAC hose applications.

NBR – Beside the standard and pre-crosslinked nitrile rubber portfolio, ZEON is also well known as a specialty nitrile rubber producer. The specialty nitrile rubbers vary their forms from standard bale rubber, to liquid (Nipol® 1312) or powder (Nipol® 1411) grades, originated from the production facility in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Nipol® 1312 has proven its unique function to enable the production of soft elastomer articles without using high level of oil or plasticizer. It eases the processing and prevents oil bleeding, since the liquid NBR is curable into the polymer matrix. Powder NBR is perfectly utilized in a special dry compounding process in the area where the end products need to have high stiffness but also a certain extend of flexibility, e. g. in the brake pad application. Both liquid and powder nitrile rubbers are ideal material for adhesive application, also where a solvent free system is desired.

SSBR, Li-BR, Hydrocarbon Resin – The tyre industry is one of ZEON“s main market segments. The newly founded joint venture of ZEON Corporation and SUMITOMO Chemicals (ZS Elastomers) in Japan consolidates their tyre rubbers product portfolio, solution-SBR and Li-catalysed-BR, supplying the global tyre industry with world class products. The functionalization technologies coming from both mother companies lead to a special synergy effect and become the solution in the developments of future green tires. „Our products, particularly the functionalized S-SBR and Li-BR, support the global tyre industry to continuously optimizing the balance between low rolling resistance, wet grip, wear resistance and good processability“, says Hiroyuki Adachi, Tyre Rubber Commercial Manager, „they are the key features of modern high performance eco tyre“.

ZEON hydrocarbon resins (Quintone®), furthermore, has become an essential part as performance resins in the modern tyre technology. In addition to the standard functions of hydrocarbon resins as tackifier and softener, which are necessary for compound processability, Quintone® improves other tyre performance metrics, such as the tip resistance, chip-chunk resistance, and anti-crack behaviour. Both in specialty rubbers and resins, ZEON“s R&D activities result on innovative materials that support tyre compounders worldwide to achieve their target tyre performances.

COMPANY PROFILE

ZEON Corporation is the world leader in specialty elastomers, polymers, and specialty chemicals. ZEON is one of the top producers of polymers in the world, operating a global network of plants in Asia and North America, and research and development laboratories in Japan, USA, China, and Singapore. With almost 70 years in business and consolidated sales of ca. US$ 3 billion, ZEON has both the experiences and the expertise in C4 and C5 chemistry to offer a wide range of world class products.

Düsseldorf, June 11, 2018 – Asahi Kasei has launched Thermylene® P11, a next-generation family of glass-reinforced polypropylene (PP) compounds with unprecedented strength. With the new material, the leading global supplier of high-performance thermoplastic compounds expands the performance envelope for conventional glass reinforced polypropylene design and opens opportunities for thinwall molding of interior and exterior automotive parts.

The Thermylene® P11 family of chemically coupled PP compounds, currently available in 30%, 40%, 45% and 50% glass loadings, delivers the highest tensile strength without sacrificing other performance attributes. It provides an optimum balance of properties and facilitates thinwall molding for a wide range of applications.

The new family of Thermylene® P11 compounds offers higher tensile strength at elevated temperature, greater room temperature tensile, and improved fatigue and creep resistance compared to the predecessor material family, Thermylene® P10. Thinwall molding is possible thanks to Thermylene® P11″s melt flow of 10-25 g/10 min – specifically tunable to customer needs.

„The Thermylene® P11 family is a step change improvement which enables European automotive OEMs and tier suppliers to fine tune the necessary performance without worrying about any compromise. Asahi Kasei has received strong interest in the new family of glass-filled PP compounds with material evaluations currently underway at leading OEMs and tier suppliers,“ said Vive Apte, Manager of Polyolefins R&D at Asahi Kasei.

Asahi Kasei is targeting a range of structural parts in the automotive and appliance markets. In interior automotive, key applications include door modules, center consoles, load floors, and instrument panels. Underhood automotive parts include fan shrouds, battery trays, front end modules, and grille shutters. In appliance, Thermlyene® P11 is targeted for heat-exposed dryer components such as lint trays.

Thermylene® P11 provides up to 40% improvement in measured tensile strength at 80°C and 120°C compared to conventional glass-filled PP. Thermylene® P11 GF40% boasts flexural modulus of 10,000 MPa, tensile strength of 125 MPa, and a heat distortion temperature of 155°C.

P11 PP compounds can also be processed at a lower temperature and a higher fill rate, resulting in energy and cycle time savings. Thinner wall thicknesses can be achieved in new designs due to the high tensile and flexural modulus properties. Due to the material“s high flow, parts can be packed more efficiently resulting in lower porosity/voids.

Science Research Technology

Efficient coating of O-rings

The new Rotamat system for small batches allows the efficient coating of work piece volumes from 2 to 15 liters.

Efficient coating of O-rings

The new Rotamat R 60 is suitable for coating of mass produced small parts made from elastomers/metal

At the DKT exhibition Walther Trowal presents the newly designed Rotamat R 60 for coating of mass-produced small parts like, for example, O-rings. This system was specifically developed for users who are increasingly switching to smaller batches and, generally, lower batch volumes. However, the R 60 offers all the features found in its larger „siblings“!

The new Rotamat R 60 is the first coating system on the market that allows efficient processing of work piece volumes between 2 and 15 liters. With a diameter of only 600 mm the drum is ideally suited for small batch volumes. The inclination of the drum is adjustable within a wide angle allowing its adjustment to different work piece geometries. It allows the intensive mixing of the parts in the drum and guarantees complete, optimum coverage by the spray nozzles.

With the new machine Walther Trowal takes into account that in connection with just-in-time requirements many companies generally place purchase orders in smaller work piece quantities.

Frank Siegel, sales manager „coating technology“ at Walther Trowal is now able to offer the right machine for practically every conceivable application: „Many of our customers want to coat small part batches but do not want to give up the high technical standard we have implemented in our larger units R 80 and R 90C. With the newly developed R 60 they can now efficiently coat small batches without having to invest in a larger machine.“

For the Rotamat R 60 the Trowal engineers have utilized the proven components of the larger machines: For example, the inlet and exhaust air system, the explosion protected LED lighting inside the drum and the mounting of the drum.

Here are some details of the innovative features

Precise control of the inlet air temperature

The measuring point for the inlet air temperature is immediately at the drum entry. Compared to measuring the temperature with a sensor behind the air heating unit the measurement is now much more direct allowing extremely precise temperature readings.

Eco-friendly operation

For typical applications – today 90% of all customers are using water-based paint – Walther Trowal supplies a specially adapted filtering system. For coating tasks with solvent-based paints the new R 60 – like with the bigger Rotamat units – can be equipped with a four stage exhaust air filtering system with a Papp filter, a filter mat and two pocket filters.

Low energy requirements

The capacity of the heating unit was adapted to the smaller drum diameter, resulting in considerably lower overall energy requirements. Depending on the technical characteristics of the work pieces and/or paint Walther Trowal can equip the machine with PID or pulse control for the heating unit. The result: Customers can also use paint types that do not allow going over or below certain operating temperatures.

Walther Trowal opens the „North American Tech & Training Centre“

Mass finishing, deburring, polishing, shot blasting and coating: The branch in Michigan now has its own process development center and offers comprehensive service for North- and South-America

Walther Trowal opens the  "North American Tech & Training Centre"

In the Test & Training Center: Loading of work pieces into a CF rotary vibrator for processing.

To cope with the increasing business volume in the Americas and to better serve the American customers in the field of surface finishing and preparation, Walther Trowal is expanding its sales branch in Grand Rapids, established in 2005, with additional manpower and a process development lab. Recently the Walther Trowal LLC has officially opened its „North American Tech & Training Center“.

The company, initially established as a sales office, has become an operation with its own test center, after-sales service activities and a sizable warehouse for compounds, media and spare parts. Effective immediately two recently hired application and sales engineers, stationed in Grand Rapids, are now supporting the already existing nine distributors in the US and Mexico, including our sales office in Queretaro, Mexico.

Moreover, the newly established process development lab, equipped with a range of different finishing machines, now offers American customers the possibility to test the Walther Trowal equipment with their work pieces directly in the United States and to optimize their finishing processes.

Ken Raby, Vice President and General Manager of the Walther Trowal LLC, is now in a position to serve his North-American customers even better: „We consider close proximity to our customers as essential to our future success. With our expanding sales and technical base in Grand Rapids we can adapt our processes and systems much better and, especially, much faster to the requirements of the American users. Especially in the field of mass finishing it is essential to develop and optimize the various finishing processes for our customers through processing trials under manufacturing conditions in our test lab“.

The new „Tech & Training Centre“ is also equipped with a lab for coating technology. This allows the customers to test various coating methods and develop the right process for their coating requirements with the „Trowal Coating“ technology.

Christoph Cruse, general sales manager at Walther Trowal in Haan, explains why the company is expanding its presence in North-America: „The North-American market is somewhat different from Europe – Especially in the United States the automobile industry is still a key player, but is subject to enormous cost pressures. That is why it is essential for us to offer our customers fast and competent service. Long reaction or downtimes are no longer acceptable! In addition, we also see a tremendous potential in the rapidly expanding aerospace industry and medical engineering.“

In Latin America Walther Trowal has also expanded its presence with the recently opened sales office in Queretaro, Mexico. The local staff is supported by the knowhow and service of the colleagues in Grand Rapids.

The capacity of the new, large warehouse ensures that the Walther Trowal LLC can offer short delivery times for equipment and consumables. The mass finishing, shot blasting and coating equipment as well as the plastic finishing media are still supplied from the Walther Trowal headquarters in Germany. Ceramic media continue to be manufactured at the plant in Stoke-on-Trent, Great Britain.

Facts about Walther Trowal

For more than 85 years Walther Trowal has offered modular and custom engineered solutions for a wide range of surface treatment problems.

Initially only making vibratory finishing equipment, over the years Walther Trowal has continuously broadened its product range and today offers a wide portfolio of equipment and services for improving all kinds of surfaces, e.g. mass finishing, part cleaning, shot blasting and drying of a wide spectrum of work pieces, last but not least, the coating of mass produced small parts.

Walther Trowal offers not only various types of equipment but complete surface treatment systems: By linking the various equipment modules and automating the complete process, we are able to precisely adapt our process technologies to the technical requirements of our customers. This also includes various types of peripheral equipment and process water cleaning and recycling systems. Of course, we also offer comprehensive pre- and after-sale service like sample processing in one of our demonstration labs and global repair and maintenance service.

Draw Wire Sensor MH60 – effective application in harsh environments

Draw Wire Sensor MH60 - effective application in harsh environments

High demands are made on sensors, particularly in the area of mobile hydraulic applications. There is a growing demand for precise measuring processes in the area of mobile hydraulics, given that a reliable and safe positioning of vehicle support legs is essential for the safety of the persons and equipment involved. The MH60 was developed, to ensure a reliable measuring process in precisely such harsh environments. The IP69K rating allows for a maximum protection of the electronic components against water and contamination. The sensor can be easily cleaned using a high-pressure jet without suffering any damage. To achieve maximum performance, the customer can choose the ideal type of housing for the sensor depending on the environmental conditions. Because of this, WayCon offers a cost-effective, robust and compact solution for an effective application at the end customers“.

In addition to the standard industry output signals (0…10 V, 4…20 mA, potentiometer), a low cost CANopen interface according to CiA 406 is also available. A series of options allows for a wide variety of variations: An offline setting of the most important parameters is possible with the help of our squeezer as well as the programming of the analogue measuring range. Furthermore, a complete signal failure is counteracted by a redundant output signal. The customer has the option of perfectly adapting the sensor to his or her application using different rope fixations and rope diameters. The MH60 can be equipped with an additional base plate, to provide the required stability.

MH60 is nominated for the INDUSTRIEPREIS 2018

With the MH series, the development department succeeded in developing sensors, which were able to be qualified for the INDUSTRIEPREIS 2018. The expert jury rates the products in 14 individual categories. Our MH series combines the characteristics robustness, compactness and reliability in one cost-effective sensor and at the same time, converts the usual precision to this series as well.

To achieve maximum performance, the customer can choose the ideal type of housing for the sensor depending on the environmental conditions.

WayConPositionsmesstechnik GmbH has been developing and manufacturing precision sensors for position and distance measurement since 1999. As an innovative company with headquarters in Taufkirchen near Munich and a branch in Brühl near Cologne, we sell our products all over the world. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible measurement technique solution: from high-quality sensors from the standard range to customer-specific solutions, from prototype to series production – for the most varied applications in industry and research.
