Innovating With Plastics
Meeting Medical Device Manufacturing Demands
We held our third Plastics in Medical Devices conference in North America in mid-June, again in the medtech hotbed of Northeastern Ohio. The event addressed a number of hot-button topics in the medical device manufacturing industry, including value-driven engineering, regulatory issues, material and application advances, device design trends, and how the plastics industry is working to combat hospital-acquired infections.
The event, held June 11-13, 2012, at the LaCentre conference facility in Westlake, just west of Cleveland, where the first Plastics in Medical Devices North America conference was held in 2010.  See video highlights from those first two conferences below. Stay tuned for word on the dates and location of PMD 2013.
