In the medical industry, prototyping is a critical step in the time-consuming, and expensive process of bringing a new product to market. The medical device prototyping process produces a functional model for the design and specification of appropriate materials for use in the testing and evaluation phases of products and business presentations.

How to prototype a medical device
CNC processing: Companies' precision CNC machining capabilities, including milling, turning, wire EDM, and surface milling, enable us to create complex 3D shapes, geometries, features, and finishes on metal (including aluminum) and plastic substrates. The machining process accurately and repeatedly produces prototypes and medical device products with tight tolerances.
Clear acrylic machining and polishing: Surface finishing processes such as B. Finishing and polishing with pure acrylic, changing the surface of a prototype or product to give it a certain or desired aesthetic or function.
This technique can change the appearance and add other features to the part, such as greater corrosion resistance or conductivity. Especially for acrylics, machining and polishing operations enable the manufacture of products with high clarity and precision, such as lenses and prisms.
Aluminum machining: Aluminum is a low-density, high-strength substance. The machining and polishing of materials enable manufacturers to produce high-quality products and prototypes within tight tolerances.
Reaction injection molding: RIM produces robust and lightweight components and prototypes. Compared to other injection molding processes, this process allows for more complex and complex part geometries at a lower cost per part. In addition, injection molding processes generally allow high volumes (millions) of repeat production.
