After thoroughly studying the problem, Flextech suggested a new tray design. This tray would be compression molded from a medium to high-density cross-linked polyethylene foam. We believed one of these materials would provide impact protection and resilience to protect the fragile blood pump.
The customer was very interested in our proposed molded foam tray. We provided a quote for the prototype tooling and several molded foam trays that would allow them to perform drop tests using trays with different densities of cross-linked polyethylene foam.
