Bunting creates the perfect custom magnet products for use in medical devices and hospitals – whether that is in advanced diagnosis, surgical equipment, drug delivery systems, or other subsets.
Applications for Magnets in Medical Devices and Healthcare
From accurate diagnosis and targeted drug delivery to minimally invasive procedures and therapeutic interventions, magnetic applications play a pivotal role in improving patient care and treatment outcomes.
Custom Magnets and Magnetic Assemblies in Medical Equipment
Magnets are highly advantageous in medical equipment. For devices such as MRI machines and insulin pumps, magnets have been responsible for achieving groundbreaking advancements in technology that would otherwise be impossible. Magnets are also valuable due to factors such as providing improved sterility for equipment, as permanent magnets can be used to affix components together for ingress protection. When magnets are hidden between sealed plastic or non-magnetic metal walls, they are protected from exposing a seam or grooves that would otherwise be at risk of collecting dirt and biological debris. Certain magnetic materials, such as samarium cobalt, are an excellent choice for medical devices that are sterilized using an autoclave machine, as they are able to resist the high temperatures they are exposed to in the process.
In our design consultation process, we consider the exceptional need for sanitation and safety when providing magnetic products for the medical industry. Bunting’s world-class manufacturing facility includes an option for glove box clean air assembly and an end of line pass/fail test to ensure spotless products that promise to uphold your brand and reputation. Our magnet materials and assemblies meet your quality and precision standards while maintaining a competitive price. Bunting has a long history of providing magnet materials for high demanding applications including MRI machines, pacemakers, heart pumps, sleep apnea machines, and insulin pumps.
