Med Device Manufacturing Incorporating Injection Molded Plastics In Medical Device Design — Initial Considerations

Even a great component idea can be undermined by gaps in knowledge surrounding plastic materials, from engineering and design considerations to optimal procedures for turning that idea into a reliable plastic part that can be consistently produced, affordably and with high quality.

INDUSTRY INSIGHTS

Micro-MIM Succeeds At Making Precise Micro Metal Parts

As component sizes for medical devices shrink to micron size, conventional machining may not be the most efficient or consistent method for manufacturing. Learn why Micro-MIM is preferred for components with tight tolerances at high volumes.

Plan For Success With Sustaining Engineering In Medical Device Development And Manufacturing

Sustaining engineering enables the developer to plan ahead, getting the development and design of the device done right the first time, and smoothing the transition to manufacturing. KMC's executive director of engineering, Scott Leon, weighs in on the subject.

How To Uncover The Hidden Value Of Culture In Supplier Selection

The business pain of switching suppliers, both in terms of costs and revalidation time, heightens the importance of making the right decision the first time.

Taking Micromolding To the Next Level

Micromolding requires a high level of intimacy and attention to detail to be successful over the long run, so it’s important to work with micromolder with the capability, scalability, and sustainability to get a product from the design stage all the way to high-quality mass production.
