Teleflex Medical OEM Opens Two EPIC Medtec Centers To Accelerate Device Innovation

Teleflex Medical OEM

Teleflex Medical OEM, a leading provider of medical device development and manufacturing services, announces two state-of-the-art EPIC Medtec Centers located in Mansfield, Massachusetts and Maple Grove, Minnesota. These facilities bring together expert engineering talent and extensive, integrated capabilities to enable clients to develop market-ready devices, reduce technical risk, and get the devices to market faster. Most device development can be accomplished in a few days instead of the weeks, months, or years required by traditional methods.

The EPIC Medtec Center (Engineering, Prototyping, Innovation, Collaboration) in Mansfield focuses on the development of sutures and performance fibers, while the Maple Grove center is dedicated to catheter and access device innovation. Teleflex Medical OEM already operates a third EPIC Medtec Center, focused on catheter and access devices, in Limerick, Ireland.

The facilities utilize the multi-stage IDEA Medtec Process (Innovation, Development, Engineering, Accelerator) that incorporates a client’s requirements into a device. New product ideas can be explored, prototyped, and tested on-site. Design for manufacturability is emphasized at each step of the process. Guess work is virtually eliminated since decision-making is data-driven via Teleflex Medical OEM’s proprietary analytic tools.

The smartly configured floorplans of the EPIC Medtec Centers were carefully planned to promote innovation in a collaborative environment. Everything is in place to move a device from concept to production-ready device. There are immersion labs for concept development, design engineering, and demonstrative prototyping and testing. Amenities such as a video conferencing center and 3D printing studio are also available.
