Key activities to remember when developing plastic parts for medical or technical devices

Event Partner: THINGS

Plastic is THE material for many technical and medical devices. It is versatile and can satisfy high performance demands for many applications. The trick is to know how to choose the correct material and how to process it correctly. We will therefore, together with our partners, provide the necessary knowledge for how to succeed with your plastic parts!

Our free seminars on the subject have been appreciated in many cities between Umeå and Lund but also in Oslo. Now, we would like to invite you to participate in our guided digital tour with the intention to give you a general understanding of a complex area, and to highlight potential pitfalls. During the webinar you will also have the opportunity to ask questions and have discussions directly with the presenters in break-out groups!


Dan Karlsson, Alten
Alten is a leading consultancy firm, active in areas from space technology to life science. Dan Karlsson will emphasize the importance of the concept phase and early considerations of user and regulatory requirements.

Björn Petersson, Albis
Albis is representing leading manufacturers and brands as a distributor of thermoplastics. Given that there are many different thermoplastics with subgroups we are looking forward to Björn Peterson’s guidance how to find the best suitable plastic material for your project.

Peder Bay, Zeiss
Zeiss, well known optical expert for 175 years is also a leading manufacturer of multidimensional measuring solutions. Peder Bay will point out the importance of well-defined dimensions on a 2D-drawing and introduce us to GPS (Geometric Product Specification). Did you know you can scan all internal and external structures with computed tomography systems (CT)? Let Peder explain!

Håkan Lavebratt, AMB
AMB lacks Zeiss’ 100 extra years but 75 years in the plastic business also means a lot of experience. Håkan Lavebratt will tie up the tour by highlighting important steps of the industrialization phase, i.e. going from a prototype to high volume production. How to validate the result? – let’s discuss the options.

Jörg Hinz with 20+ years at AMB will be the moderator for the event.
