Polycarbonate Makrolon 2808Copyright: Fraunhofer ILT
Polycarbonate is a dimension-stable and very shock-resistant plastic. Makrolon 2808 is of medium viscosity and is used in medical applications. Processing is usually done via injection molding.
For ventilation channels of medical equipment, e.g. a blood pump, the drill hole's cross-sectional area characterizes the volume flow of the ventilation. To gain the accordingly small diameters of 50 to 150 µm laser drilling can be applied as fast and clean processing-method.
