Medical Device Manufacturing
High tech injection molding has long been associated with the manufacturing and automobile industries but it is also heavily used in the medical device field. In fact, high tech injection molding has become extremely valuable in medical device manufacturing because plastic has proven to be an ideal material for use in the human body. Unlike metals, plastic doesn’t corrode, is more lightweight, and is more readily accepted by the body. In many cases, properly produced plastic devices can last a lifetime.
As demand for plastic medical components has grown, so have regulatory requirements and scrutiny. The field is so highly regulated and the devices have such specific requirements that there is absolutely no room for error and even the smallest misstep can have drastic consequences for the device manufacturer.
This is where high tech injection molding becomes vital. The use of robotics and other high tech processing techniques is essential to the safe production of medical devices while at the same time keeping costs in-line and competitive with overseas manufacturing.
Why Baytech Plastics’ High Tech Injection Molding Is A Must For Medical Device Manufacturing
Aside from the regulatory scrutiny that medical device manufacturers are under, these companies work with the very sobering knowledge that their devices are necessary to help people live their lives to the fullest
These requirements affect the final product and the components used in the product as well as the production facility and machinery itself. Medical device manufacturers must supply the names of their production partners to federal regulatory agencies. Those production partners are then subject to the same scrutiny and third-party audits as the device company itself. As it turns out, some equipment and facilities simply aren’t up to the challenge of producing parts for medical devices.
Baytech Plastics isn’t one of those companies. We have an extensive background in medical device manufacturing and have routinely invested in our high tech injection molding facilities to ensure that we can meet any regulatory requirement and continue to support our medical device partners.
