The following example shows how Elite Technology has applied its experience in plastic injection molding to deliver superior performance for devices, controls and panels used in the medical device industry:
Double-Injection Molded TPE Controller
This controller was designed for use in hospital bed applications. It required three individual plastic injection-molding processes. The front cover used a co-molding process in which the IMD keys were inserted into the mold to be co-molded to the ABS plastic with silicone rubber. The rear case was manufactured using single-injection molding of ABS plastic. The IMD process provided the decorations that applied the symbols to the keys.
The finished controller was constructed of ABS plastic, silicone rubber, and PET. It was ergonomically designed with buttons laid out for easy accessibility and completely sealed against spills and moisture for protection easy cleaning.
