Make Informed Medical Material Choices

Few decisions are more elemental to the creation of a medical device than material selection—quite often it’s the chosen material’s properties that enable the device’s function—literally making it possible.

Len Czuba, a medical plastics product and design consultant will be walking attendees through that vital decision, and its aftermath, at next month’s Medical Injection Molding Workshop at Amerimold 2019 in Chicago.

In his consulting life, Czuba works in product development, onsite training and as an expert witness. Named in 15 patents, Czuba’s knowledge has lead to products that have made a lasting impact on the medical plastics industry. He has imparted that knowledge to others in training sessions held everywhere from Pittsburgh to Costa Rica to Northern Ireland. That training has covered topics as varied as materials selection and evaluation for medical devices to implantable polymers.

In product failure assessment and patent litigation, Len has served as an expert witness providing testimony on product analysis, design interpretation, patent claims assessment and good manufacturing practices (GMP) compliance.

A member of the Society of Plastics Engineers since 1975, Czuba is past chairman of the Medical Plastics Division and former Councilor for the European Medical Polymers Division. He was the Society’s International President during SPE’s 2005 – 2006 year and is now a Distinguished, Honored Service, Fellow of SPE.

Czuba’s presentation, joins talks by Beaumont Technologies, addressing the importance of balanced flow, and faster process validation with Erik Sherburne of Advanced Molding Technologies, as well as a medical market outlook from Michael Guckes of Gardner Business Intelligence.
