The benefits from metal-to-plastic part conversion cuts across all parts of the health-care industry, from device makers, doctors, hospitals and patients, according to Jay Haverstraw of PMC LLC. "Itís really predominately cost drivers, but thereís a bunch of side benefits to the other players in the food chain, so to speak," said Haverstraw, technical sales manager at PMC, a Cincinnati-based injection molder, in a recent presentation at the Plastics in Medical Devices 2012 conference in Westlake. Founded in 1929, PMC is an injection molder and contract manufacturer that serves the medical, commercial electronics and transportation markets. The Plastics News-sponsored conference was held June 11-13.
