BIW as a leading manufacturer and supplier of products based on silicone rubber and glass fibre enlarges its portfolio of products for medical applications. For that, BIW is certified according to ISO 13485 standard. Besides the classical products like hoses, pressure hoses and moulded parts, the company now focuses on specialised products requiring complex manufacturing techniques to exactly meet the customer’s demands.
To achieve this, all processes available at BIW like silicone extrusion, injection moulding and coating can be combined, including silicone-metal and silicone-plastics bonding technology and parts made of electrically conductive silicone. Further process steps and assembling of the produced parts can be done in a semi-automatised setup or in a roboter-based environment.
A functional or promoting marking and coding for traceability can be applied by printing technologies, by laser technique or as a single- or multi-coloured silicone inlay. These techniques can of course be applied on various other applications.
For the even subsequent protection of cables e. g. in machine building and automotive applications, the thermoplastic protection sleeving „Flextex“, an over its full length open but overlapping sleeving, has been introduced.
