It is hard to believe that the MD&M Minneapolis exhibition is next week! The older I get the quicker the time between events seems to be.
What I am really excited about is in addition to the existing products and capabilities; Molex has kicked it up a notch in the Healthcare industry portfolio with the recent acquisition of Affinity Medical Technologies LLC which was completed October 10, 2012. Affinity is focused on engineered medical grade cable assemblies and interconnect solutions for the healthcare industry with special talent in the areas of electrophysiology, patient monitoring, and therapeutic applications. Over the years I have gotten to know Affinity in the context of a customer, competitor and partner – the quality of the product and the people is top notch. Come by the Molex booth 1344 to check out the Affinity product capabilities on display.
In addition, Molex will be introducing the first MediSpec™ product from Temp-Flex, a Molex company that was acquired last year. The MediSpec™ Micro Miniature Coils solve the precision and cost requirements for flexible electrical coils used in invasive and implanted medical procedures. That is correct! Molex is indeed in the implantable wire segment and Temp-Flex has a pedigree in micro wire used in medical device applications.
The Molex booth will also feature demonstration model of an external fluid sensing circuit. Utilizing capacitive sensing technology, fluid in any non-metallic container can be detected and transmitted to the host device or displayed on the sensor itself with LEDs.
Of course you will also be able to see the wide portfolio of Molex interconnect solutions for a number of markets which can also be used in the healthcare device industry. To see the full complement of Molex products and capabilities please visit Molex.com .
