With the Baby Boomers reaching retirement age and technology advancing almost exponentially, this is an exciting market for companies that supply components and assemblies into medical applications. The marketplace is vast with products ranging from simple syringes and disposables to complex diagnostic machinery such as CT scanner and MRI equipment. Embedded in the overall market are many niche markets that require motion components.
Typical applications include:
- Medical centrifuges
- CT scanners, MRI and diagnostic equipment
