Material for Surgical Robotic Systems
Withstands Sterilization Methods
RTP Company, Winona, MN/USA, has developed thermoplastic technologies that can be utilized for surgical robotic systems, with special properties such as strength, flame retardance, wear/chemical/impact resistance, color, and the ability to withstand sterilization methods. If required, biocompatibility support can be provided for many of these compounds.
The materials are used for robotic systems and housings; monitor components like housings, bezels, bases, and tool holders; reusable instruments such as cannulas, trocar housings, grasper tips and endo ports; single-use tools such as surgical forceps, shears, tweezers and tool housings; and medical staplers.
Variety of Resin and Additive Combinations
The company specializes in formulating compounds with the appropriate resins and additives to create materials that provide the properties required by robotic systems. According to the TRP Company, the compounds for surgical robotic systems and components are available globally in a variety of resin and additive combinations to fit precise requirements and meet the demands of surgical use.
