A medical device company initially celebrated for its bioabsorbable fixation suture design faced significant challenges when the chosen molder, despite reputation, failed to produce the intricate part accurately after five years. The molder's limited success resulted in 30% IV loss and consistency issues, necessitating a secondary operation that further compromised the product's integrity. Seeking a reliable solution, the company turned to MTD for expertise.

MTD's innovative approach involved creating a custom tool with an intricate design, taking two months compared to the usual one week. The tool's creative side action techniques allowed for precise part ejection, addressing the complexities of the bioabsorbable fixation design. Through material characterization and tooling construction, MTD minimized IV loss, ensuring consistent shot-to-shot performance. This newfound confidence in device repeatability enabled successful proof of concept testing.

The case underscores the importance of early involvement with micro molders, emphasizing collaboration in material selection and leveraging the molder's expertise for optimal outcomes. Discover key priorities for bioabsorbable success and more insights for your next challenge.
