From Idea to Serial Production
We accompany you comprehensively from the beginning of your development process: from feasibility analysis to material selection and determination of manufacturing requirements, to component design, initial prototyping, and transition to serial production.
The earlier we are involved, the more effectively our product development experts can ensure that your design is optimized from the start in terms of function, quality, cost-effectiveness, and time-to-market.
Our customers appreciate our creative approach to solutions and our ability to implement ideas through the most efficient and transparent project organization.
Our service for you includes:
- Product-process development
- Feasibility studies
- Cost optimization
- Determination of the optimal manufacturing strategy
- First sample inspections
- Short lead times for prototypes
- Transition from prototypes to cost-efficient serial production
With our extensive experience in machining for the medical and pharmaceutical industries, we are well-prepared for various requirements and applications. A broadly diversified and highly automated machinery park with various robot systems ensures efficient machining and meets the high industry standards.
Your benefits with Europtec Polymer:
- Multi-axis turning and milling centers
- Swiss-style turning
- Robot palletizing systems for highly automated production
- Multi-shift operation

- Deburring (e.g., dry ice deburring)
- Surface treatment (blasting and vibratory finishing)
- Marking (laser, pad printing, and screen printing)
- Part cleaning (ultrasonic cleaning)
Safety is our top priority. That’s why all our manufacturing facilities are certified according to the DIN ISO 13485 standard required in medical technology.
Additionally, we are registered with the FDA to meet the needs of the American market.
Qualification and Validation:
We qualify our production equipment and validate the necessary processes with you. Where there are no specifications, we are happy to provide advice. Secure, streamlined, and cost-effective processes are always our focus.
Our measuring equipment portfolio is extensive, ranging from simple gauges to state-of-the-art computer-controlled measuring machines with tactile and optical measurement systems. Quality assurance also includes monitoring systems for “invisible” risks, such as contamination.
Visual inspection and other testing methods:
Every product undergoes repeated visual inspections during production. Only in this way can the smallest material inclusions or surface deviations be detected and removed. Functional testing is especially important for instruments to guarantee quality and safe use in the operating room. Upon request, we perform specific functional tests in the quality assurance process for you. For example, industrial computed tomography provides additional deep insights into the product and allows for 100% dimensional control.
In addition, we ensure an extremely high standard of quality through additional quality assurance machinery, including:
- 3D-coordinate measuring machines
- Optical measuring devices
- Surface measuring devices
- Measuring equipment allocated to manufacturing orders
- Measuring equipment monitoring
- Worker self-monitoring
Assemblies / Finishing Processes:
One of our manufacturing competencies lies in the production and assembly of assemblies. Exceptionally challenging and complex components and groups are challenges that we are happy to take on.
We deliver fully assembled and tested assemblies, ready for final assembly or as finished products for the end customer.
Assembly manufacturing includes the following services:
- Assembly and testing of assemblies and individual parts
- Various joining processes (welding, bonding, screwing, riveting)
- Assembly of various components and purchased parts
- Functional testing
- Packaging, cleaning, and assembly in ISO Class 7 cleanrooms
We are your solution provider in all areas of the medical and pharmaceutical industry. Our main focus is on the following areas of medicine: diagnostics, dialysis, endoscopy, surgery, endoprosthetics, joint replacement, medical instruments, traumatology, dental medicine, pharmaceuticals, laboratory technology, and analytics.
