Industries & Applications
The medical technologies (Medtec) is a segment of the Health Market where CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES (CTEC) have been delivering compact dynamic and precise mechatronic components (Actuators & Sensors with their electronics) & solutions (detection & motorized systems) since 1990s. CTEC products are used in Medical devices and applications in order to improve and to save people’s lives, from research & prevention, to diagnosis to cure. CTEC defines 3 main categories in the Medtec market:
- Medical Devices, research instrumentations & In Vitro Diagnostics
- Medical components Manufacturing & Process machine
- Implants, Prosthesis & Surgery assistance
Most of the applications in these 3 categories are very demanding in terms of miniaturization, bio / MRI / EMC compatibilities. From prototypes to OEM products’ requirement, CTEC provides its customers with clean, reliable, low power, accurate and non- magnetic mechatronic solutions.
MEDICAL DEVICES (MD), RESEARCH INSTRUMENTATION & IN VITRO DIAGNOSTICS (IVD)
CTEC solutions such as piezo shutters, slits, positioners, goniometers and scanning stages are integrated in many scientific instrumentations like X-Ray & Electron Microscope (SEM, TEM) imagers, IR spectrometers & Cytometers to name but a few. Our client scientific instrumentations are used in Medical & Bio labs for advanced research program in Immunology, Oncology, Drugs & Genomics, some of these instruments being even used in the fight against COVID-19.
CTEC OEM solutions are also implemented in medical X-ray, MR elastography, Laser & Nuclear imaging devices through high value added functions (micro-scanning, active damping, anti-blurring, etc…) in terms of cellular imaging resolution in order to improve the diagnostics of Cancer and to prevent from long and severe cure.
MEDICAL COMPONENTS MANUFACTURING & PROCESSING
Machines producing & assembling parts into medical components (stents, needles, cutters, etc…) and processing material & chemicals (powders, reagents, etc…) are also requiring for accurate handling, fast clamping & positioning, shaking, fine dosing and fluidic control functions. CTEC piezo actuators (APA®, PPA and MSPA) are serving and fast cycling performing in grippers, shakers, positioners and liquid dispensers used in Medical production line.
CTEC is involved in the development of Ultrasonic generators that are used for improvement of liquid chemical processing and especially for antibacterial coating of medical Fabrics (bed linen, membrane, etc..) and parts (Catheters,..).
