Kleiss Gears, Inc., a world leader in polymer gear design, will be at booth 1203 at BIOMEDevice in San Jose December 6-7, 2011, to highlight the special design and production issues of plastic gears in medical devices. The company’s senior design engineer, Mike Weiss, will also present an “Innovation Brief” entitled “Precision Gearing for Medical Devices” on Tuesday December 6 at 1:10 to 1:25 p.m. at on the showroom floor at booth 801.
For nearly 20 years the company has designed hundreds of gears for clients around the globe, contributing substantially to meeting the growing need for truly precision gears. In the last five years Kleiss Gears’ medical device business has grown significantly as medical device developers recognize the company’s exceptional abilities in the gearing industry and the overall lower costs. A large part of this success is attributed to the unique Shape Optimized Gear DesignTM, which results in higher contact ratios, greater strength, and smoother-acting gears. In addition, Kleiss Gears provides the full range of gearing services—including design, tooling, prototyping, testing, manufacturing, and inspection—which enables optimum part control.
Kleiss Gears has specialized equipment and experience that particularly benefits the medical device industry. Micro molding expertise enables the development and production of polymer gears in the tiniest of medical instruments. Use of nontraditional (exotic) polymers similarly allows for unique applications that were once impossible or impractical to manufacture. Finally, Kleiss Gears’ experience in medical quality control documentation helps customers speed through FDA filings. Learn more at www.kleissgears.com.
