Case Study: A custom solution for material removal and tin plating on a medical pump component

A customer manufactures a medical flow-through valve that contains a pump that regulates the flow rate of fluid drip on an intravenous line. Inside the valve, a metal disc makes contact with the pump, which is part of an adjustable-speed pulsating mechanism. The entire valve unit must be disposable, as every fluid change would require a new valve for sanitary and infection control reasons.
