For more than 45 years Coy Laboratory Products Inc. has manufactured controlled atmosphere glove boxes and chambers designed to fit your labs needs. Since developing the first anaerobic chamber specifically for microbiology their line of glove boxes, chambers and sensors have expanded to cover a wide variety of applications. As technology advances, so does Coy and that's why they use our 4.3" HMI (HMI5040B) on their O2 Control Glove Box.
CardioQuip leveraged years of conversations with surgeons, bio-meds, and perfusionists to design and manufacture their first cooler heater in 2011. With the introduction of the MCH-1000(i), CardioQuip launched a new generation of cooler-heaters, featuring intuitive design, simplified cleaning, and accurate temperature control. Since then, CardioQuip has partnered with company's like Maple Systems (HMI5043LB) in their commitment to provide simple, high quality solutions.
MSI Automation, Inc. has been providing induction heating solutions for many industrial applications and for medical and materials research for the last 20 years. Hyperthermia is being used for the treatment of brain tumors, especially in infants, where other methods of Hyperthermia treatment have proven unsuccessful. MSI uses Maple's HMIs on the Nano Particle heater. Watch their video and see our HMI at work.
For decades De Dietrich Process Systems has been providing the pharmaceutical industry with high-quality products to meet companies' rigorous standards. As the pharmaceutical industry drives processes toward smaller batches and higher concentrations, lower temperatures and higher levels of containment, De Dietrich continues to evolve their product offering to meet these changing demands. We are proud to provide De Dietrich with the 7" HMI + I/O Combo unit for their Powder Pump unit.
Miller Technical Services (MTS) provides manufacturing services to medical device companies, inventors, private equity, pharmaceutical companies and more. Additionally, we are well-equipped to handle engineering support, supply chain management, production assembly, service and warranty parts depot and device history record maintenance specifically for the medical industry. MTS builds the CleanStart Ultrasonic Cleaner that uses our 7" Aluminum enclosure HMI (HMI5070P).
For over 85 years, Nelco has pioneered innovative radiation shielding solutions, with a passion and commitment that’s unparalleled in their industry. With a record of environmental health and social responsibility that’s second to none. At NELCO, they conceive and realize the world’s most advanced shielding projects. Nelco partnered with Maple Systems for application engineering services when transitioning to our 12.1" HMI (HMI5121XL) on their medical doors for a radiation room.
“Maple Systems partnered with us to complete an Application Engineering project. [Maple's Application Engineer] was a pleasure to work with and helped to verify and test the solution. This project continues to pair well Maple Systems hardware.”

Elevate Quality Control
FDA and other regulations
Improved traceability provides valuable data.
The ability to track products from end-to-end is critical in the medical & pharmaceutical industries. Automation significantly improves traceability which means a product can be readily tracked from its source, through processing and distribution, until it reaches the shelf for consumers. If a problem is detected with a batch of products, the shipment can be located and retrieved, avoiding potential issues. Improved traceability provides valuable data that allows manufacturers to ensure regulatory compliance and cut down on the cost of compliance. This data also allows for trouble-shooting and identification of issues along the supply chain – allowing for continuous improvement and enhancing overall quality, safety, and profitability.
Automation provides manufacturers with consistency.
The medical & pharmaceutical industry demands excellent quality control in order to provide safe products and preserve the brand reputation. By reducing the potential for human error and allowing early identification of potential issues, automation increases the reproducibility of production and helps ensure the final product does not vary – or more concisely put, automation improves quality control! Consistency and safety is crucial for the medical & pharmaceutical industry. With the IIoT, manufacturers in this space can set more of their industrial systems on productive autopilot, improve their consistency and quality, reach their market faster with new products, and realize other competitive and practical benefits.
Increase efficiency, improve traceability, and protect the brand’s reputation.
Manufacturers across all industries are under constant pressure to increase profits while reducing costs. In addition, the medical & pharmaceutical industry is under pressure to comply with FDA and other regulations that ensure safety and quality. Automation is a clear solution to relieve these pressures as automated processes are proven to increase efficiency, improve traceability, and protect the brand’s reputation – all while complying with the requisite regulations. A Maple Industrial Panel or Box PC paired with our SCADA software, Aveva Edge 2020, can create applications that are 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. Track change and other data in a SQL
database for future inspection.
Read why Silverstone Automation Chose a Maple Systems 10" HMI for their Precision Catheter Tip-Forming Machine. The SilverCATH 1100 tip forming machines processes one catheter/introducer per cycle. An operator loads the product onto the machine-carried mandrel which is moved to the tip forming station for processing. Through a 10" color touch screen, the end user can enter and save process parameters within product recipes. Settable process parameters include power output, process times, motion speeds, and positions.
"With the 10" easy-to-read Maple touchscreen and separate screens for operators and technicians, the operator's interactions were simplified, and unintended interactions were mitigated. In addition, using pre-programmed recipes meant operators had less information to enter for each patient, reducing changeover time and minimizing errors."
