Medical Devices

Enhancing performance and minimizing maintenance

Medical Devices

Medical devices can be broken down into two distinct types, disposable products and durable equipment.

Disposables are single-use medical devices generally used in short-term medical procedures, while durable equipment may be in service for several years and requires periodic maintenance.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions extrusions and Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) molding capabilities are commonly used in both disposable and durable equipment. Custom designs in silicone can enhance product performance, extend life and minimize planned maintenance of durable equipment, lowering overall device user costs.

Our seals and bearings are typically found in the following medical device applications:

Disposable Products

  • Catheters
  • Drug delivery systems
  • Enternal feeding tubes
  • Respiratory and anesthesia masks

Medical Equipment

  • Surgical drills and saws
  • Surgical trays
  • Home oxygen concentrators
  • CPAP devices
  • Anesthesia delivery systems
  • Endoscopes
