Smart Re-Design for a High Impact
Case Study

Optimizing a Complex Assembly for a Class 3 Medical Device

For the production of a class 3 medical device used in an operating theatre, our customer needed support for converting the preliminary model into an optimized new model.

The product optimizing project for the complex assembly involved reengineering it entirely while simplifying and safeguarding the whole-system functionality.

The Challenge:

Smart Re-Design for a Simplified Manufacturing Process and Automated Assembly

Using the know-how of our development department, we revised the entire assembly in close consultation with the customer.

In order to simplify the existing complex manufacturing and assembly steps and to minimize the purchase of external parts, all individual parts were checked for practicality and manufacturing complexity. The development of precision-fit injection molded parts made it possible to implement automated assembly. In addition to simplifying assembly, this led to a significant cost reduction. At the same time, the number of parts required was reduced and the supply chain was simplified. Intelligent product development and mold design ensured optimizing of the product's functionality and guaranteed plastic-compatible and process-safe production.
