B.Braun Visit

[HG 4-21-10] On April 16logo_BBraun, 2010 we visited B.Braun Medical in Allentown, PA to learn about medical device manufacturing. TeamMeeting_100416-03aWe started out with a video about the company history, while we were treated to snacks and sodas. Then, engineers from R&D, Design and Production explained B.Braun's products. They introduces us to he fascinating world of infusion systems and drug delivery. Highlights were hands-on demonstrations of needle free IV valves (with fake blood!) and the illustration of 3D computer-aided design process.  Then, everyone had their turn to play with an industrial robot in one of B. Braun's R&D Labs. Their robot was clearly bigger and much 'fancier' then our LEGO robots, but the engineers explained that it used pretty much the same building blocks: motors with rotation sensors, various otther ensors, step-by-step programs, .... Another highlight was the window tour through production were we could see hundreds of large industrial robots making millions of little plastic pieces each day. Thanks so much again to our host Mr. Selk and his team of experts who stayed late on a Friday to give us a first-class tour and patiently answered our lots and lots of questions. We were very impressed and we would certainly like to come back one day.
