Metal-to-plastic conversion is one of the most effective methods for enhancing performance and reducing the cost of medical instruments, devices, and housings. During this presentation you will learn how specialty polymers can be used to replace even the strongest and stiffest steel devices by incorporating simple design modifications. You'll discover how advanced polymers are being used to enable innovative hybrid polymer-and-metal solutions and hear case studies illustrating typical development cycles and highlighting performance advantages you can achieve in next-generation devices.
