Within the world of medical device manufacturing, Liquid Injection Molding (LIM) is a process that provides several benefits over other methods. Product strength and reduced weight, all while being more cost effective than some other alternatives, and still producing an end product within the set parameters of the device and regulatory bodies are some of those benefits.
An important early step in Flexan’s method of creating successful components for our customers’ medical devices involves understanding how they will function within their end-use scenario. We work closely alongside our customers at every step throughout this process – from planning meetings through prototyping stages right up until when they launch their devices. Thus, we can determine if LIM is the best option, and how to ensure using this process goes as smoothly as possible. In this two-part blog series, we will look specifically at liquid injection molding as a product manufacturing tool.
