Minco Demoing SmartHeat SLT™ Self-Limiting Heaters at MD&M West 2019

Fridley, Minnesota, January 2019—Minco, a worldwide provider of industrial temperature sensors, heaters, and control systems, announces demonstrations of their SmartHeat SLT™ self-limiting heaters will take place at the 2019 MD&M West trade show and conference in the Anaheim Convention Center, booth 2825.

MD&M West is North America’s biggest medical device technology trade show, featuring nearly 20,000 attendees and over 1,900 exhibitors. It’s a premiere gathering of industry professionals sharing their latest products and technologies.

Minco’s SmartHeat SLT heaters offer a convenient alternative to traditional heating and temperature control devices in Medical applications, providing self-limiting control at prescribed temperatures as well as self-tuning capability in dynamic environments. Utilizing a patented polymer compound, SmartHeat SLT heaters pinpoint exactly when and where heat is required, without the use of traditional feedback loops and regulating electronics.

The control mechanism is inherent to the polymer inner-lay material at every point across the heater’s surface. At the specified temperature control point, the resistance increases exponentially to prevent overheating and promote thermal uniformity. This simplifies the end-use device’s design, condenses the product design and development cycle, and reduces total system cost.

Minco’s market-leading engineering and production capabilities result in lightweight designs, optimal performance, and increased reliability and safety. With a broad array of product offerings, Minco is able to offer Integrated Solutions that combine flexible circuits with sensors, heaters, and other components to create a single component that minimizes assembly cost and rework.

Minco provides faster time-to-market, more tests per hour and improved accuracy through experienced engineering, computer simulation, testing, and more than 40 years of background in the field.
