At Europlaz we use the latest design technology to provide advanced surfacing and fully integrated manufacturing applications. Our aim is to improve effectiveness when it comes to medical product prototyping, saving you time and costs by minimising design revisions and lead times.
Our in-house design team assists in the medical device prototyping process, and continuously assesses your product to ensure we are utilising the most efficient manufacturing processes.
This is done by:
Polymer selection: suitability to meet client specifications and suggestions on alternatives to existing materials.
Mould flow analysis: fast track suggestions on improving mouldability.
Europlaz adopts a rapid prototyping model manufacture, by means of:
Stereolithography, SLA & SLS
High-speed CNC machining
Vacuum casting (polyurethane)
Prototype mould tool design, aluminium or steel.
Single or multi-cavity mould tool design, including hot runner systems and robotics, where required.
Design assessment of existing tools, with suggestions to improve or extend tool longevity
3D Printing for Medical Product Prototypes
Having a representative prototype of your medical device at an early stage in the development process provides insight into design features, tactility, function and can eliminate costly errors encountered further in the design process. We can provide this to you through a full 3D printing service for the production of medical device prototypes, fixtures, jigs and mock-ups.
We also offer a full suite of materials, from rubber through to metal, to help bring your medical product prototype to life and find ways to shorten lead times. As this service is provided solely for our clients as part of our project services, you will benefit from the same expertise working on the 3D prints as those working on a full-scale production, giving the benefit of ensuring the 3D samples are compatible with planned future manufacturing methods.
Since 1970 we have built a reputation for innovation, quality, and cost-effectiveness.
We use our experience and state-of-the-art technology to streamline all stages of the medical device manufacturing process for you – moving your product quickly and safely through development, and speeding up regulatory approval of medical devices.
Our UK-based ISO 13485 certified and FDA-compliant facility means that we have complete control of the process, from under one roof. We are flexible, and resourceful, and can take on projects of any size. Our clients range from small start-ups to international blue chip medical device suppliers.
