Case Studies

  1. Keys To Bioabsorbable Process Development: Consistency And Control
    3/8/2017

    A medical device company developed a bioabsorbable fixation design and concept that was commended by many surgeons in the industry. Unfortunately, after several years of working with a reputable molder, there was limited consistency and success in producing the part that was in their original drawings. MTD assisted the company by guiding them through material characterization and the development of a unique tooling construction concept to reduce secondary operations. MTD’s micromolded parts achieved minimal and consistent IV loss and were much more consistent shot to shot.

  2. Achieving Optimal Bioabsorbable Material Properties With Micromolding

    A medical device firm needed to find a company able to produce a micro medical device with a bioabsorbable material. The first company chosen delivered inconsistent results, which threw off any functional evaluations and threatened the project outcome. This case study discusses how MTD Micro Molding provided the customer with a bioabsorbable micro molding solution with a consistency far greater than the competition’s.

  3. Micro Injection Molding For Thin Wall Drug Delivery Components

    There are many types of challenges that can cause a high precision micro medical molding project to fail including delays in validation, achieving multi-cavity capabilities, and product launch issues. This case study presents a customer that encountered all of these challenges at once, and looked to MTD Micro Molding to complete the product validation and pre-production runs that a competitor could not complete for them.
