The skills, advanced equipment, and various services we offer can bolster your medical, Electronics, and Aerospace device production or distribution performance.
Medical device prototyping and rapid manufacturing are the foundation of your medical product design and development process. You can send these prototype parts and low-volume production parts to the lab or clinical trials and ultimately to market faster.
The design and development of new medical devices can be expensive and time-consuming. However, outstanding innovators redefine best practices from concept to commercialization, and your new medical device can be brought to market with efficiency and economy.
Rapid prototyping manufacturer can quickly, consistently, and cost-effectively delivers prototypes with essential functions and production parts in low-volume manufacturing for concept and market testing of medical devices and health products. This allows you to explore ideas, generate early customer feedback, and develop fit-for-purpose solutions so you can put them into lab or clinical trials and ultimately get them to market faster. During this process, you can also gain insight into the subsequent manufacturing process, costs, schedules, and quality control.
Medical device enclosures need to be designed and manufactured to meet the challenges of healthcare industry standards, such as ergonomics and aesthetics, ruggedness, UV resistance, excellent flame and water resistance, ease of repeated cleaning and disinfection, and safety of use.
TX MOLD can help you test and validate the appearance and performance of medical device enclosures by developing visual design models and functional prototypes to accelerate the process of turning your innovative ideas into market-ready products.
CNC machining is important for testing medical device housings using engineering-grade materials. Machined plastic housings can provide the same materials to test product performance, functionality, and manufacturability as the final product, and are also optimal for flexible, fast, and efficient custom low-volume production.
Perhaps no other technology can play such an important role in high-precision, high-tolerance manufacturing as CNC machining. The machining of surgical instruments and surgical tools must ensure enough accuracy and compliance with additional use and safety standards.
We are able to machine medical-grade materials such as titanium and stainless steel with the highest efficiency and precision. We specialize in precision machining of complex geometric details, are proficient in 5-axis micro-milling, and combine manufacturing processes such as metal injection molding, metal casting, EDM, and wire EDM to create the most ideal precision machining process.
Typical accuracy of medical machining: dimensional tolerances of ±0.01mm, geometric tolerances of 0.01mm, the minimum machined radius R0.1mm, and machined surface roughness Ra0.2μm.
3D printing or additive manufacturing technologies are also an ideal way to manufacture medical products. 3D printing is an additive layering process that allows individual components to be produced quickly that can easily create complex geometric shapes for applications such as prosthetics or medical models. This rapid prototyping method allows for quick and inexpensive iterations of the design for efficient debugging, which makes it very useful for the early evaluation of new medical parts. 3D printing offers the greatest advantage of accurate form and fit testing, and the disadvantage of limited materials, color and texture, and lack of surface finish.
Many opportunities and applications make polyurethane casting a compelling addition to the medical industry for low-volume production runs of medical device housings. You can utilize urethane casting for the initial product launch prior to injection molding and tooling for market research and customer feedback, as well as early delivery of medical devices. For markets where small-scale innovation is the norm and product life is short, silicone molding to cast urethane also allows manufacturers to improve their designs at a faster pace without having to amortize the cost of hard tooling.
Rapid injection molding provides a better choice for those medical device manufacturers needing low-volume molded parts. It will meet your needs for manufacturability analysis, engineering testing, clinical evaluation, investor demonstration, or production readiness in the later stages of medical and health product development. At the same time, it will be able to bridge the gap between prototype and production and let any issues be discovered and corrected well before they are transferred to manufacturing.
