A new Medical Connector and Cable Assembly Business Unit has been established by Molex Inc. to deliver advanced interconnect products to the medical market.
The company has reinforced this through the strategic acquisition of Temp-Flex, a manufacturer of micro-miniature wire, cable and continuous coils using biomedical coating and medical grade base metals.
As Director, Wayne Shockloss will lead a team that has already introduced several products under the company’s MediSpec portfolio. These products address the demands of medical equipment manufacturers engineering new and emerging healthcare products in diagnostic imaging, therapeutic, surgical, patient monitoring, hospital and patient care and healthcare IT applications.
“By converging our innovative interconnect solutions with Temp-Flex’s long-standing expertise in complex cable assembly design, Molex is in a good position to incorporate unique and commercial electronic design ideas into next-generation medical applications,” said Shockloss.
