Tex Plastics Barnstaple have carved out a niche for producing plastic injection moulded housings and parts for the medical device sector. With a growing reputation for helping medical device manufacturers develop concept projects through the prototype stages into low volume production runs and beyond..
With the increase in medical device plastic injection moulding, Tex Plastics have the medical device industry’s most widely used international standard for quality management ISO 13485. This will enable Tex Plastics to consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements when developing plastic injection moulding and assembly solutions for medical device manufacturers.
Smaller volumes of clean room plastic injection moulding
There seems to be an appetite for plastic injection moulding in a clean room environment for smaller volumes. This is a niche area Tex Plastics has capitalised on, largely as a result of working with medical device manufacturers to develop prototypes and initial production run quantities.
Usability testing and clinical trials
These units may be used for summative usability testing and clinical trials, and they are suitable for initial release to market. Refinements from user feedback and production process can still be made, in addition to incorporating any user requests and identify cost-saving measures in the assembly process.
60% Reduction in cost for ophthalmic device
Understanding the importance of comfort influenced the moulding and fixing techniques to contribute to the ground breaking device for vitreo-retinal specialists and ophthalmologists.
With a redesign of tooling and the change of polymer, it enabled ultra thin moulding to hit the clients usability requirements. Consolidation of parts into a single assembly also shortened lead-times, so even with Intensive testing and product validation, the clients supply chain shortened – further reducing the plastic component manufacturing costs.
Improved usability and reduced cost or medical polyware
In the high pressure environment of an operating theatre, seconds count. Whether rapid response to saving lives or maximising the efficiency of a theatre or treatment room.
With a redesign of tooling and the change of polymer, it enabled ultra thin moulding to hit the clients usability requirements. Because the ultra-thin moulding resulted in lighter products, packaging costs were reduced. Most important of all, the products usability – in other words the product performance – was significantly improved.
66% Cost down of large DIN tray scope sterilising container
Tex Plastics were able to help the designers enhance the manufactured product so it could meet the extremely demanding environmental and usage requirements. The design process involved several innovations; from Silicone grips to ensure delicate scope and instruments doesn’t get damaged during the cleaning and sterilising process; to smooth corners preventing damage to wrapping papers.Find Out More
