Enter the world of efficient medical device production
Businesses know that a good idea is not always a viable one. Experts in each facet of medical device design and the development team must, therefore, come together to create a design for manufacturing or design for manufacturability (DFM) plan. The DFM process seeks to ensure that a product—or each of its components—meets and exceeds all requirements in terms of device performance, compliance with global regulations (U.S., EU, etc.), use of the most effective materials, cost-effectiveness, adherence to set tolerances, and validation tests.
Using prototypes at each iteration of the design phase enables hands-on testing and validation. Thus, prototypes serve as pre-production models capable of demonstrating each product feature and the benefits of the adopted manufacturing process. For the best results, the product design and manufacturing engineering teams should work hand in hand.
Product designers are not familiar with the various aspects of production engineering that are influenced by product design. So if you contract with a manufacturer that does not offer sound DFM and prototyping capabilities, your production process will run into issues at later stages. Skipping DFM and prototyping can lead to such problems as high wastage, longer production time, and faulty products.
Quasar’s dedicated team of seasoned engineers in our R&D department in Israel handles every medical device design, ensuring it advances to the NPI stage. Armed with DFM and rapid prototyping capabilities, Quasar identified inefficiencies in production that, once addressed, can save vast resources in the long run. Making these adjustments at the NPD design stage will ensure efficiency during full-scale manufacturing.
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!
