Haverhill, MA – Ultrasonic Systems, Inc. (USI), a leading manufacturer of high-performance ultrasonic spray coating equipment has increased its presence in the medical devices market with the sale of a PRISM-500 system to a European medical company.
USI’s PRISM-500 Programmable Coating System features proprietary nozzle-less ultrasonic technology with programmable X-Y-Z motion and positioning that is designed for production medical device coating applications such as drug eluting coatings for implantable devices, catheters, and surgical textiles, as well as coatings for diagnostic devices. The PRISM-500 delivers thin, sub-micron level defect-free coatings with at 95-99% transfer efficiency, and a 500x500mm X-Y range of motion. The system precisely controls all critical process parameters such as liquid flow rate, head motion path, and head speed, to prevent “process drift”, and logs the exact amount of coating used for each recipe.
“We’re happy to add a new installation to our global base of medical customers,” said Drew Erickson, CEO of Ultrasonic Systems. “Therapeutic coatings play a crucial role in enhancing device performance and creating positive patient outcomes. The PRISM-500 is a powerful tool to ensure coating performance matches the mission of these crucial devices.
