Precision Insert Molding
Precision Insert Molding
Every year, Intricon produces more than twenty million assemblies with a wide range of applications including electronics, overmolded needles, specialty devices and more. Assemblies are produced using a variety of methods ranging from manual to highly automated systems dependent upon volume requirements and complexity. Intricon produces more than one hundred million molded components annually. This experience and expertise demonstrate our ability and capacity to take on projects of any volume. Scientific Molding Process Development and stringent Quality Control systems validate every phase of our manufacturing processes.
We specialize in product platforms with tight tolerances and challenging designs for insert- and injection molded assemblies. Examples include infusion needles with a built-in safety needle feature and subcutaneous sensor insertion needles. As your joint development manufacturing partner, our goal is to meet your design requirements and price point with zero defects.
Interventional Catheters & Delivery Systems
Specializing in thin-wall, high-tolerance extrusions, Intricon produces microcatheters, aspiration catheters, stent delivery systems and balloon catheters often with steerable/deflectable tip shafts. Clinical applications include cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, neurovascular, structural heart, pulmonology and more.
Intricon’s interventional catheter fabrication capabilities include electromagnetic micro-coil and sensor integration to enable precise device tip location. With our range of technical capabilities, Intricon can bring to life your device designs that include a wide range of microelectronics as well as precision miniature molded parts and sub-assemblies. Our joint development manufacturing approach extends all the way to fully assembled, packaged devices.
Electromagnetic Tip Location Technology
Intricon specializes in electromagnetic (EM) tip location solutions. EM tip location works by imbedding a tiny micro-coil in the distal tip of a medical device which can be tracked in three dimensional space when it moves through an electromagnetic field projected across the targeted area of the patient’s body. By using EM tip location technologies, less fluoroscopy (x-ray) is used during the procedures, resulting in less radiation for the patient and the medical team.
Our micro-coils can be wound with a diameter under 1 French and lengths under 8mm.They can be wound with insulated wire as small as 58 AWG (one-third the diameter of a human hair) around a range of cores (or no core). And with decades of experience in microelectronics, we have unparalleled capabilities in fine wire bonding to attach micro-coils to twisted pair leads or other wires to create full-length connectivity. Intricon also has an excellent track record of incorporating micro-coil sub-assemblies into fully assembled devices, performing final device calibrations and packaging in our customer’s final packaging. Common clinical uses for EM tip location technologies include Interventional Pulmonology, ear/nose/throat (ENT) and atrial fibrillation (AF) mapping and ablation.
Body Worn Devices
Body Worn Devices
Building on years of in-depth experience in microelectronics, wireless communications and ultra-low power digital signal processing, Intricon produces a range of devices that end-users wear on their bodies. Products in this category include cardiac monitoring patches and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems as well as gastrointestinal capsules that a patient can swallow to capture images or collect sample bacteria in the GI tract.
We also use our expertise in winding micro-coils to create tiny antennae used in implantable cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices or cardiac monitors. We can help advance innovation at any stage of the development process, from early stage R&D as your joint development partner to final testing, packaging and shipping.
Founded in 1977, Intricon advances hearing health innovation today as a global leader in joint development manufacturing. The partnerships we build span a complete range of solutions from new product development to supporting the emerging over-the-counter hearing health market. As technology and market conditions change, we work together with our partners to plan, pursue and deliver shared success.
