Developing Medical Quick Clamps That Don’t Fail – Pharma Hose Clamp Analysis
Developing plastic clamps that are user friendly and reduce finger and wrist fatigue is not as simple as it seems. A major clamp and tubing manufacturer was having problems with product failures and needed a remedy. Medical personnel clamp and unclamp hoses dozens of times per day and the new design needed to be comfortable as well as durable. Sigma Design was brought in to review and analyze the parts for a new clamp design that would eliminate failures in the field and also have the feel and control needed. These new parts were made to be manufacturing smart injection molded.
