Improving Medical Equipment
Certain products can work while having minor imperfections. Those same products don't need to meet exact specifications to properly function. Unfortunately, goods within the medical field cannot tolerate differences, and as such they must be made to exact parameters. If a medical device doesn't work perfectly, it could be a matter of life or death. The use of automated assembly machines allows medical device companies to create higher caliber products at cheaper rates.
In 1997, the FDA did a major investigation into medical equipment and devices. The study concluded that most problems were connected too flaws in the manufacturing process. The FDA has since set up strict guidelines for creating medical products.
Automated assembly machines can help companies reach these standards. Automated assembly can produce large quantities of the same product over multiple years. The calculated, continuous motions allow for the same flawless product to be created and recreated. The machines help to improve repeatability. Building products by hand is slow, and it is hard to get exact measurements consistently.
Adding automated assembly machines to your factory can help you to produce better medical equipment at a lower price point. Give us a call, so we can help you determine the best machines for you!
