Stainless steel strip for hypodermic needle is the main material for injection needle production.
If you are the beginner of this area, you can have full understanding on all aspects of stainless steel strip for hypodermic needle.
Let’s keep reading.
Why Use Stainless Steel Strip For Hypodermic Needle Production?
Almost everyone has received an injection with a stainless steel hypodermic needle.
It has worked tirelessly in the medical field. It is responsible for delivering drugs and vaccination, taking blood samples, etc.
In order to be used in health care, the stainless steel strip material must be easily disinfected and not harmful to human health.
This is the main performance of 300 series stainless steel strips. Most syringes used in hospitals and doctors’ offices are intended for single use, but the 300 series stainless steel strip is durable and very suitable for making special needles that can be cleaned and reused.
The stainless steel hypodermic needle itself called the “cannula” must be high strength, sharp and sterile.
Grade 304 stainless steel strip and 316L stainless steel strip have the advantages of good hardness, tough texture, elasticity and resistance to corrosion.
And these features help them be the most ideal medical injection needle production raw materials.
When it comes to stainless steel strip for hypodermic needle production, cost-effective feature can be key.
That’s why customers come to us when sourcing quality stainless steel strip material for metal hypodermic needle application. We’ve got you covered.
What Is Stainless Steel Hypodermic Needle?
The stainless steel hypodermic needle is a simple device—a thin hollow stainless steel needle connected to a plastic tube—but it is an important part of today’s medical kit.
“304 (UNS S30400) and 316 (S31600) stainless steel with excellent corrosion resistance and strength are ideal medical materials,” said Frederick Hartman II, Director of Marketing and Engineering, Vita Needle Company in Needham, Massachusetts. The company produces fully integrated syringes and pointed sleeves for customers in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Vita Needle Company has been using 300 series stainless steel strip in its manufacturing process since its establishment in 1932. Hartman estimates that the company uses 5 tons of stainless steel strips to produce needles every year.
“The material is universal, cost-effective and predictable,” Hartman said.” It is very popular in a variety of applications, which means that it is easy to obtain pipes at a reasonable cost level. Moreover, because of the large amount of materials available, it is easy to find the size corresponding to the customer’s requirements.”
The extraordinary machinability of the material allows the manufactured needles to reach precise tolerances. The tube-shaped raw material is cut by electrochemical method, and the needle tip can be formed by electrochemical method or grinding method.
The needle has high tensile strength in the hardened-tempered state. “The needle must be as sharp as possible and wide enough to effectively extract or inject things, with thin walls and high strength,” Hartman said. In addition, the corrosion resistance of 304 and 316 means that the needle can be stored under a variety of different conditions or can be strongly sterilized for reusable needles without worrying about it being corroded.
