ANAHEIM, CALIF. -- Herrmann Ultrasonics Inc. showed a technology advancement and, with Oxyphen AG, demonstrated a fully integrated workstation at the Medical Design and Manufacturing West trade show, held Feb. 12-14 in Anaheim.

The demonstration consisted of transferring Oxyphen micro­porous, track-etched membranes — manufactured of either polyester or polycarbonate — on Herrmann's newest HiQ modular punch-and-weld (MPW) machine.

Applications in automotive, life sciences and medical can benefit from using the membranes with the Herrmann machine, according to Peter Terstappen, head of product development for Oxy­phen, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland.

Herrmann, headquartered in Bartlett, Ill., is an operation of Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik GmbH & Co. KG of Karlsbad, Germany.
