Recorded Thursday, September 23 – Presented by Proto Labs
Medical device design is a competitive industry and being first-to-market may be key in taking stake in the multibillion dollar industry. By obtaining a competitive edge you can shave weeks or even months off your prototyping stages allowing you to reach the FDA 510K submission or verification/validation stages much faster than before.
This can be done through rapid manufacturing for early prototypes by using 3D printing, CNC machining and low-volume injection molding to reduce manufacturing costs, decrease prototyping lead times and minimize design risks.
We will focus on rapid manufacturing processes and how they are continuing to change how companies look at their medical device development processes. You’ll learn:
- The differences between rapid manufacturing and traditional manufacturing
- How rapid manufacturing can save you months of development time so you can quickly reach validation and FDA 510K approval
- How 3D printing can accelerate concept prototyping and for low-volume production
- How to prototype ergonomic medical devices with overmolded components
- How to leverage free design for manufacturability tools
