Radio frequency welding is widely used for a wealth of different products used in the medical industry which many times requires inflation in its function.
A welded seam and insertion tube sealing are often used to make an airtight seal that can withstand various types of contained liquids and air pressure requirements. For example, to manufacture plasma bags and blood bags, the most important need is for the seal to be airtight and fluid-tight in order to provide the safest deliverance of a substance.
Seam welding is used to fuse materials together which becomes a new one piece seam that is impenetrable. It is widely used for attaching inflation tubes in order to make medical products safe from leaking and contamination.
Accuracy and Dependability of RF Welding
In the medical industry, it’s absolutely necessary that the supplies being used are safe, efficient, and reliable. Radio frequency welding ensures that each product has a dependable seal making it safe from leakage, or other quality related problems.
The heat sealing process produces reliable products that are ideal for the medical industry thanks to their consistency in quality. Typical materials used to manufacture medical products are PVC, TPU and other polymers.
Heat sealing and radio frequency welding are both used in the manufacturing of medical products. We’ll recommend the best seam sealing process to you, which is usually determined by the size, configuration, product function and material requirements of your product. Whichever sealing method is used, each delivers an impenetrable seal that does not require the use of harsh chemical adhesives. View a list of RF heat sealable materials.
Heat Sealing for a Variety of Medical Products
The uses of radio frequency welding in the medical industry are vast. From inflatable patient cushions which require an airtight tight seal for optimal safety, to blood pressure cuffs that can help assess a patient’s condition and vital signs, there are plenty of products that can be manufactured using our heat sealing services.
SealWerks will work with you to determine the appropriate materials to use for a product. Heat sealing and RF welding are a great replacement for applications where adhesive bonding is too unreliable or is unsafe. A welded seal not only does its job, but the process is clean, which makes it ideal for the medical industry.
At SealWerks, we understand the unique requirements of the medical industry when it comes to containment products and inflatable medical products. Whether you want to use radio frequency welding for fabricating pressure cuffs, gel packs, containment bags, or other products, the welded seams keep harmful bacteria, air and other foreign matter out, making it a great choice for production lines.
