VAS’ customer base includes Tier 1 medical and life science companies- we manufacture fluidic manifolds and plastic machined parts which require a level of cleanliness not
found in a typical machine shop. Our engineering team works closely with product development groups to create innovative solutions. Examples of instruments which use
our products include Next Generation Sequencing and Digital PCR.
Medical Devices, In Vitro Diagnostics, Pharmaceuticals, Biologics, Biotechnology
Instruments with Optics and Controlled Motion often include plastics machined parts with
tolerances and finishes that demand specific knowledge of
materials and application engineering. VAS' engineering team has over 75 years of combined plastics engineering experience, and we understand how
to ensure repeatability in a low to medium volume environment.
Products for Military and Aerospace require support from prototyping through end-of-life component management. VAS is comfortable with a
low volume high mix environment where mission critical plastic machined parts require a degree of control not found in most job shops.
Plastic machined parts are often used in semi-conductor equipment because of unique thermal and chemical compatibility characteristics. VAS has the processing and inspection equipment needed to ensure repeatability. We also have a deep understanding of plastics raw materials and how to select materials to match a specific application requirement. VAS thrives in a low volume, quick turn environment.
The overall implant market is made up of reconstructive joint replacements, spinal implants.
Within the past decade, implantable polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymers have matured into an
established and widely accepted family of biomaterials for spinal devices. In the United States,
instrumented spinal fusion is the most common surgical procedure for chronic neck and back pain
for patients who do not respond to conservative treatment. Historically, spinal fusion instrumentation
was fabricated from metallic biomaterials, including stainless steel and titanium alloy, because of
their strength and fatigue resistance.
However, one key drawback of these metallic implants is incompatibility with diagnostic imaging, including MRI and CT scans. VAS Integrated is capable of
supporting customers with all PEEK machining, assembly and sterile cleaning.
