Designing and manufacturing medical and life sciences devices is always a challenge. Linear motion components with the required form, fit, and function are often vital parts of these devices. Most such components are bought off the shelf. But what if standard linear motion products don’t work, or don’t fit, or can’t deliver quite the right […]
Active implantable medical devices(AIMDs) are complex products subject to rigorous regulatory standards by authorities across the globe. With both implantable and non‐implantable factors, as well as EMC and wireless considerations, manufacturers have a lengthy list of standards to know and to which they must comply. It is important to know which standards and requirements apply […]
As the May 2020 deadline approaches, manufacturers and suppliers are forced to comply or be faced with major implications on their business. The following report outlines a path to compliance and how to: Identify if your company is on course for compliance Manage the 11 new label elements on a global scale Overcome the challenges […]
Precise miniature plastic parts are the result of exact tooling execution. By understanding the tolerances of both micro tooling and micro injection molding, it’s possible to achieve a high level of repeatability and part accuracy for even the most advanced micro medical devices.

How to Thrive in a Digital Era. As new innovations become more critical to business success, organizations must contend with the challenge of updating legacy technologies. “Architecting for Change: Embracing a Platform Approach” demonstrates how adopting a cloud-based quality platform allows your business to grow and adapt with the changes ahead.
MasterControl Manufacturing Excellence delivers results. Life sciences manufacturers are seeing some eye-opening improvements, like 80% faster post-production review and release times. Read Metrics That Matter for Quality Manufacturing to learn how.
The new European Union (EU) Medical Device Regulation (MDR) will impact medical device manufacturers’ product-development timelines. All companies intending to sell their devices in Europe must understand the new MDR and how it differs from the previous directives, especially in terms of new biocompatibility standard requirements. Download the white paper to learn more…
This case study shares insights from engineers at Abbott Technologies on how they use multiphysics simulation to model left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) to improve the outlook and quality of life for patients with heart failure. Read on to learn how simulation software allowed Abbott to evaluate the structural integrity of the external controller of […]
Biologics and other targeted therapies are creating opportunities for innovative device solutions to meet the needs of the formulations as well as specific patient groups. These therapies may require lower annual volumes, and the device manufacturing strategy must fit commercial expectations at those volumes. Optimal manufacturing solutions should mitigate risk while meeting the quality, financial, […]
Today’s medical device OEMs need thermoforming partners to take on expanded roles in packaging design, development and testing. By providing full-service capabilities, thermoformers can enable optimized sterile medical packaging fit for purpose, which may be more sustainable, and can even play a big part in a device’s functionality.
This whitepaper explores Micro Molding with Bioabsorbables. Across the board with plastics, the rules are different when you mold it so small. But when it comes to bioabsorbable resins, they require a much more extensive and specialized approach than thermoplastics. By learning how processing bioabsorbables differs from thermoplastics, medical OEMs can understand the key factors […]
