    The use of aqueous cleaning in pharmaceutical manufacturing can provide numerous benefits in terms of effectiveness, minimal surface residue, and easier cleaning validation. 

  4. Cleaning Validation For Medical Device Manufacturing

    Cleaning validation or verification is a necessary regulatory compliance step in medical device manufacturing and reprocessing. Support from the cleaner manufacturer can save time and money.

  5. Pharma Manufacturers Should Get Cleaning Validation Support From Supplier

    Cleaning validation is a necessary and time-consuming part of manufacturing pharmaceuticals. The validation process can be expedited and cost reduced if the cleaner supplier can provide support.

  6. When Miniaturization Matters

    It is imperative for military organizations around the globe to be able to find ways to lighten the loads that soldiers carry into battle. Every piece of equipment must be able to improve communications, agility, and lethality for soldier reliability. Connector and cabling solutions have been identified as one place to make such improvements. This white paper takes a close look at the miniaturization of military connectors, and addresses issues of size, weight and functionality.

  7. Laser Engraving Resolution Chart

    This article reports the measurement results acquired when a metal sheet was scanned with a resolution chart engraved on its surface.

  8. Intro To Laser Management: Laser Profiling 101

    Traditionally, laser operators only verify a laser’s average power or energy to improve efficiency and, if everything is in order, put their laser back into service. This article discusses steps required to identify and use a camera profiling system (arrayed camera, attenuator, and beam dump) for laser management.

  9. Reducing Production Waste With Laser Profiling And Characterization

    A critical component in a laser manufacturing process is the understanding of which process parameters or key control characteristics must be measured and how they will relate to product quality and waste. A laser profiling system can be a great benefit for characterizing and identifying which variables affect product quality and waste minimization. Unfortunately, many companies realize this too late and incur more expenses and extended downtime than necessary when trying to implement the system near the end of the process. This article dives into a method of using in-house tools, like laser profiling, to characterize and optimize a process in advance so that product quality and process variability may be understood and maintained.

  10. Important Changes To ISO 13485 2016 For Medical Device Manufacturers And Designers

    The ISO 13485:2016 quality management and regulatory requirement standard established a new international framework to mitigate risk and produce effective medical devices. Those who wait too long to transition their QMS to the updated version may face certification bottlenecks and market-entry roadblocks.
