By involving Europlaz at an early design stage, our experience can help to achieve cost-effective, high-quality manufacture. Clients benefit from our extensive range of engineering services and a dedicated project manager and account manager, should you need one.
Design for Manufacture (DFM)
Support begins on receipt of your enquiry with a Design For Manufacture (DFM) review of the component. At the earliest stage the DFM process will focus on ease of manufacture and optimal mould tool configuration.
Using DFM could save you a costly redesign at a later as you will test viability at this stage. We will support your design team in these stages, including process selection, material identification, component design, mouldflow analysis and medical device assembly design.
Prototyping for Medical Devices
A crucial part of the medical device manufacturing process is prototyping, which allows you to see how the “Design to Manufacture” stage pays off. Our rapid prototyping procedure ensures that your product is viable once it hits the market. Polymer selection makes sure you are using the best possible materials for your product, and mouldflow analysis gives quick and useful suggestions on improving mouldability. Our manufacturing prototypes are fast-acting and accurate or choose our 3D printing for insight into tactility and functionality. As this is in-house and provided for our customers, the same experts working on full-line manufacturing will produce these prototypes.
Much like prototyping, pilot production is a way to test production methods and how the manufacturing process runs. By ironing out any kinks in production, you will save money on a volume-produced manufacturing run. You can also test the packing and inspection stations at this stage.
Streamlining Production for Medical Devices
Our seven cleanroom facilities, covering 60,000 sq ft, are set up with the latest stringent medical requirements in mind.
With digitally controlled machines providing accurate and rapid results, and Europlaz’s experienced team, we can deliver quality products at volume. We can utilise our 26 medical Injection moulding machines, which can deliver cycle times between eight and 60 seconds, and a variety of moulding techniques, to give you the best properties for your purpose.
Packaging, sterlisation and 3PL
Our packaging solutions offer safe, reliable and sterile barriers to preserve medical standards. We also offer the creation of labels with custom barcodes or pre-validated pouches to speed up production. We can also source other packaging materials for a new medical device design if your product needs it.
After we manufacture your product, we provide you with a comprehensive order fulfilment process that includes suitable storage solutions, order fulfilment, transparent inventory control and product traceability.
