By order of the Radionuclide centre (University of Amsterdam) we developed and produced a new generator case. This product is applied in making long ventilation Scans.
The case consists of a bottom side and a cover, which after assembly with snap-connections support each other.
The product, diameter ø15mm x 13mm height, is made from Polycarbonate (PC). The tolerances with definite sizes are ±0,01mm, this requires special mould-technical solutions.
How it works:
The Rubidium-generator is built from various polycarbonate moulding parts, pvc tube, an rvs grid and membrane material. These parts combined, packed in a tungsten/lead case, form a so-called radionuclides generator. After being loaded with a radioactive Rubidium-solution, the Rubidium-generator is used for lung examination. During this examination, a small amount of radioactive Krypton, produced in the generator, is inhaled by the patient after which a scan can be made. In this way, the physician can gain valuable information on the shape and functioning of the organ.
The products are moulded in a sliding mould with a twofold Hotrunner, the entire mould is made hardened and coated. The mould has a infrared fall-out security system to ensure that the products are no longer present after the jamming of the mould. All of our products and moulds are developed using 3D Cad.
