Stepping into the world of efficient medical device production
A fact well known to businesses is that a good idea is not always a viable one. This is why experts from the each facet of the Medical Device Design and Development team come together to create a Design for Manufacturing or Design for Manufacturability (DFM) Plan. The DFM process seeks to ensure that a product or its component meets and exceeds its requirements in terms of: Device performance, Compliance with global regulations (US, EU, etc.), Uses the most effective materials for each of its components, Assembly using cost-effective and waste-free steps, Manufacturing happens within set tolerances and validation tests for quality.
Using Prototypes at each iteration of the design phase enables hands-on testing and validation. Thus, Prototypes serve as pre-production models that can demonstrate each product feature and the benefits of the adopted manufacturing process. It is recommended that the product design team work hand in hand with the manufacturing engineering team for the best results.
Product designers are not familiar with the various aspects of production engineering influenced by the product design. So if you contract with a manufacturer that does not offer sound DFM & prototyping capabilities, your production process will run into issues at later stages. Issues such as high wastage, longer production time and even products that end-users find faults in, can be the result of skipping DFM and prototyping.
Every Medical Device design entrusted to Quasar is handled by a dedicated team of seasoned engineers in our R&D department located in Israel, to ensure the design is optimally suited to advance to the NPI stage. Armed with DFM & rapid prototyping capabilities, Quasar identifies ineffective production steps that can save huge amounts of resources in the long run. Making these adjustments at the NPD design stage will ensure high efficiency during full-scale manufacture.
With over 30 years of successfully bringing designs to mass production, our team specializes in handling products at any stage of development. We can transform unsustainable design issues into improved designs for manufacturability along with reduced time to market – within your manufacturing budget!
