Rapid Prototyping for the Medical Industry

4/6/2015
Rapid prototyping has changed the way many industries create, design, and develop products for various customers.

Rapid prototyping has changed the way many industries create, design, and develop products for various customers. This technology has improved the stages of product development and prototyping in the medical industry by reducing the amount of time spent in the developmental stages of a product. Hence, developers are able to save time and minimize costs, and clients can quickly see accurate prototypes of their products. Rapid prototyping is often known as '3D printing', and it has also simplified the way changes and improvements are made to prototypes.

This technology is useful for creating custom parts and molds to make the production process easier. Moreover, it helps medical equipment manufacturers save more money and time, especially whenever they require specialist parts and tools. Prototypes can be assembled with supplied parts from the customer or the prototype specialist can quote the materials if a total turnkey solution is preferred.

Rapid prototyping starts in the computer-aided design software where the object is designed. After completion, it is created using a 3D printer, which cuts the design into layers and prints it to form a three-dimensional object. 3D printers are reliable and highly detailed, so even the smallest and most complex parts can be produced.

Medical electronics manufacturing has advanced due to rapid prototyping. Medical manufacturing companies must work with manufacturing partners that can provide high-quality and reliable rapid prototyping services that follow FDA's good manufacturing practice standards and ISO 13485. These standards require the manufacturer to implement a good system for manufacturing, designing, labeling, packaging, delivering, and storing medical devices. Look for quick turnaround. For instance, a leading prototyping service provider can complete an assembly in five business days.

Rapid prototyping can make it easier for medical equipment manufacturers to make high-quality medical electronics. If you are looking for a company that provides medical electronics manufacturing and rapid prototyping services, make sure that they use advanced test and manufacturing capabilities. Choose a company that has efficient material control and planning. To get started, look for a company that has a web-based automated material quoting service.

The best rapid prototyping services must meet IPC-610 Class II and Class III requirements. This way, you can be sure that the assembly is manufactured using high-speed automated lines. Look for a rapid prototyping service that can provide you with a refund on the assembly portion of the build if they cannot guarantee the highest quality or prompt delivery of the prototype.
