Miniaturization of medical and drug delivery devices is on the rise. As the devices decrease in size, aspect ratios of length to thickness and length to diameter are unexpectedly increasing beyond what was thought to be theoretically impossible. This session will explore case studies of high aspect ratio and thin walled devices and the scalability of thin-walled medical and drug delivery devices.

Topics covered include:
  • Design and development of parts with thinner walls
  • Wall thicknesses of 0.003” (75 microns) are possible in many engineering and general-purpose materials
  • Medical material selection for thin-walled devices
