Leading Manufacturer, Supplier & Retailer of Custom Fabricated Acrylic Incubation Chamber and CNCFabricated Acrylic MRI Calibration Tool.
Meeting precise client specifications, Acrylic Art built an incubation chamber for the pharmaceutical and bio-tech industries. This important medical device is used for the research and development of antibiotics and other pharmaceutical medicines. Maintaining precision tolerances as high as (+-) .010 of an inch, we combined our CNC machining and plastic fabrication operations to manufacture this unit based off of a customer supplied, 2D print. We first constructed the chamber using typical plastic fabricating techniques. Cutting, routing and solvent bonding to assemble the chamber allowed us to machine other details post assembly. The O-ring groove and latch mounting holes were machined after assembly to achieve the necessary tolerance on these details. Once all of the incubator’s components were successfully manufactured, we then attached the latches and hinged door and placed the O-ring into the groove. The incubator cube measured precisely 14 inches square, with varying thicknesses of acrylic ranging from .25", .50" to .75". The unit possessed flame polished edges and a clear finish designed for optimum optical clarity. The chamber also possessed tray rails, 6 draw latches, and intake and exhaust ports (as mentioned above). Once assured that our incubator chamber fulfilled our client's product requirements, we delivered the completed unit to our buyer's facility in Santa Clara, California. This important medical device exceeded our customer's high expectations for quality as required for the medical industry.
Using our advanced 3-axis CNC vertical milling center, Acrylic Art built an MRI phantom calibration tool. This important device is used by the medical research industry to replicate the human knee for osteoporosis studies. Based off of a customer supplied, 3 dimensional print, we 3D CNC machined the unit's hollow hemispheres, as well as the cast tubing and removable lid. We also machined all filldrain ports found within the hollow sphere. After all the tool's components were properly fabricated, we then polished the hollow hemispheres to visual clarity, according to print specifications, and used solvent cement to both bond the two halves of the hemisphere together, and fix the end cap to the cast tubing. Finally, we manually assembled all components, including the gasket, intake fill valve, air bleed valve, and removable top cap. Meeting a precision (+-) .005 of an inch tolerance, we built this MRI calibration tool to meet precise dimensional requirements. The fully assembled unit measured 5 inches in diameter and 4 inches in height, with a .25 of an inch wall thickness. The solid sphere - the part used to replicate the knee cap - measured precisely 2 inches in diameter. The unit also possessed water and air tight compartments, including an outer chamber filled with a lightly dyed solution and a hollow sphere, which contained a radio opaque solution, and measured precisely 2.905 inches in outer diameter and 2.405 inches in inner diameter. When all manufacturing operations were concluded, we delivered the finished product to our customer's facility in San Francisco, California. Our MRI phantom calibration tool met with our client's high expectations for quality.
