Two companies with a proud track record of delivering innovation in the medical manufacturing industry are preparing to reveal how their technology continues to break new ground in the field.
OGP UK and SYS Systems – both part of the South Derbyshire-based Carfulan Group – will be exhibiting at the Med-Tech Innovation Expo 2020 on Wednesday and Thursday, April 1 and 2, at Birmingham’s NEC.
The show, which attracts thousands of designers, engineers, innovators and manufacturers, will offer live demonstrations of the latest machines, technology, products and services from across the medical device supply chain and healthcare sector.
OGP UK specialises in multi-sensor metrology systems which can gauge the characteristics of even the most complex parts in real time and without human error, leading to better quality, reduced scrap and allowing products to be brought into the marketplace faster.
Its success in the medical arena has seen it develop processes that ensure the exact drug dosage is dispensed from asthma inhalers made by multi-national pharmaceutical companies like GlaxoSmithKline, as well as improving quality control processes and driving up productivity for medical injection moulding customers.
OGP UK will be displaying the powerful CNC200 at Med-Tech – a machine capable of supporting a combination of touch probes, micro probes and laser scanners, maintaining the highest levels of accuracy while working even in the most hostile production environments.
As a UK Stratasys platinum partner, SYS Systems has been at the forefront of the 3D-printing movement for more than a decade, supplying, installing and supporting the full Stratasys product range.
Its solutions have helped doctors to print surgical guides, models and prostheses to improve outcomes for patients, support pioneering reconstruction surgery and dramatically speed up product development times by enabling prototypes to be made quickly, easily and accurately in a range of high-class and lifelike materials.
SYS Systems will be bringing along the Objet350 Connex3 to the show, which was the first system in the world to simultaneously 3D-print multiple colours and materials.
Its flexibility allows users to create models with the look, feel and properties of real production parts, as well as quickly and easily print off custom jigs, assembly fixtures and tooling with ultra-fine accuracy. Intuitive GrabCAD software makes achieving high-quality builds simple, with no need for post-processing.
