Medical Device Prototyping

Your Vision Brought to Life

Utilising the Most Efficient Prototyping Techniques to Create Leading Medical Device Products

Medical Device & Product Prototyping Procedure

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.

Find out more about the benefits of medical device prototyping and how Europlaz adopts this approach.

Manufacturing Medical Device Prototypes

Europlaz adopts a rapid prototyping model manufacture, by means of:

  • Stereolithography, SLA & SLS
  • High-speed CNC machining
  • Vacuum casting (polyurethane)
  • Vacuum forming
  • 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.
