Challenge

Improving part design and efficiencies to ensure consistent production quality

While in the process of designing a new high-tech cancer screening device that required a complex light guide system, a well-known Healthcare OEM needed help getting their ideas into production.

Having already specified the material they required, we partnered with them to help improve their design and solve their manufacturing challenges, which required a combination of cost savings without compromising on part quality.

Solution

From prototype to production

Our expert part design and production support teams initially developed a unique CNC machined acrylic lens component. But the OEM needed a more competitive solution that allowed for faster turn-around times and increased production volume at a lower cost.

Working in collaboration with our customer’s engineering teams, we were able to test a number of production options, adjusting our designs and methodologies to meet the high specifications required for the final part. After extensive testing, we developed a unique injection molding technique that halved the production cost of each part.
