Plastics in Medical Manufacturing 2020

Plastics in Medical Manufacturing: The Virtual Edition

Presented by SPE Medical Plastics Division

Medical plastics and manufacturers making plastic medical products have been front and center in the news during this pandemic-created crisis. The making of ventilators and ventilator parts, gloves, masks, gowns and more is truly life-saving work. This conference will showcase the people, technologies and companies contributing to the battle and will talk about trends, strategies and opportunities for medical plastics manufacturers today.

This virtual event will be filled with insights from medical plastics industry leaders!

Presentation topics will include:

  • New materials for respiratory-related applications
  • Materials and technologies for medical diagnostics
  • New technologies in medical manufacturing
  • Regulatory challenges and validation in time of crisis
  • Manufacturing supply chain: challenges from re-tooling, social distancing to meeting tight timelines
  • Design changes as a result of material limitations to get the same end result/effect for medical use
  • New businesses resulting from new opportunities to leverage existing facilities while promoting positive economic impact (for example make medical parts instead of automotive)
  • Innovation, manufacturing and regulations of medical gowns, masks, face shields, sheets and PPE
  • 3D Printing and other methods as a solution for rapid manufacturing
  • Increased safety through innovative distancing, isolation and sterilization technologies
