The Angiogram Syringe Injector is a highly-engineered plastic syringe that holds and delivers the contrast media used during an angiogram.  The greatest challenge of this syringe project was a draft call out over 5.193 inches of 1/10 of 1 degree per side over the entire surface.  This requirement is 10 times tighter than a standard draft callout.  The syringe is subjected to internal pressure of 1200 PSI during use, so minimizing internal stress was paramount to producing the strongest part possible. While duel source efforts have been attempted, 13 years and 9 million parts later, Advanced is running this original 2 cavity production mold. This mold continues to produce quality parts to print with a 99.5% on time delivery record.
