WESTLAKE, OHIO (Sept. 5, 3:30 p.m. ET) — 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.
“It's really predominately cost drivers, but there's 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.
