Medical device makers are now using micro-metal injection molding instead of traditional machining. This technology allows for more precise and smaller components, improving accuracy, consistency, and cost savings.
A cardiovascular market leader turned to its contract manufacturing partner, Donatelle, for design for manufacturability (DFM) engineering support to overcome design challenges in producing a medical device for treating atrial fibrillation.
A medical device OEM needed a contract manufacturing partner with expertise in DFM, vertically integrated capabilities, and a focus on quality to transform a reusable orthopedic instrument kit into a single-use version.
Soft/semi-hard tooling & CNC-machined cavities work well for larger non-critical parts but not for micro molding. Achieving small tolerances, sharp corners, and micro features remains challenging for both micro and larger parts.
The use of single-use plastic luer fittings in medical settings, medical devices, and patient care is an example where the sustainability versus safety debate arises. This white paper aims to explore this debate and offer insights into the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
This paper aims to demonstrate the cost effectiveness of plastic luer fittings and how understanding the factors that contribute to their cost can help users select a cost-effective option that meets their performance requirements.
