Product Design & Development

Your Development and Engineering Partner

Our in-house development team of designers, engineers and ergonomists combines innovative strength with many years of industry experience and in-depth engineering knowledge. Our customers use our expertise in plastics and metal processing for the medical and pharmaceutical industry to consult us as a development partner – whether for a new product development or the improvement of an existing design.


From Idea to Series Production

We prefer to be involved right from the start to accompany you holistically in your development process: from feasibility analysis, material selection and determining manufacturing requirements to component design, initial prototyping and into ongoing series production.

The earlier we are involved, the more effectively our product engineering experts can ensure that your design is optimized from the outset in terms of its function, quality, price-performance ratio and time-to-market.

Our customers appreciate our creative approach to finding solutions - for example in joint innovation workshops for idea generation - and our ability to realize ideas through a lean and transparent project organization.

Design for Manufacturing in Plastics and Metal

In the design and tolerancing of plastic parts, special know-how is required to optimize the manufacturing process, ensure process reliability and reduce costs.

We work with state-of-the-art design and development tools and carry out extensive simulations prior to constructing the molding tools in order to optimize aspects such as wall thickness, undercuts and radii. Our many years of know-how in the processing of plastics for medical device, pharma packaging and drug delivery solutions is incorporated into every step of the process.

With our stainless steel and titanium processing expertise in the United States, we are a competent partner when it comes to the combination of plastics and metal in medical devices.


We Support Your Successful Launch

To ensure a successful launch of the new development, we take care of all necessary documentation required for the approval of the products according to the applicable standard (ISO 13485, ISO 15378). This includes, for example, requirement specifications, design FMEA, test protocols or production data sheets.


Shaping the Future – Innovation at Röchling Medical

Taking into account usability and human factors in medical device design and the development of pharmaceutical packing and drug delivery solutions is key for a safe, effective end product.

We leverage our partnerships with medical experts, hospitals, universities and research institutes to gain insights for user- and patient-centric design and actively engage with technologies and topics that will shape the future – such as the healthcare digitizing, additive manufacturing technologies and design for sustainability.

Digital technologies and their integration into medical devices and applications for the pharmaceutical industry are also the drivers and motivation behind our own research and developments, such as Connect-e-Cap® or the use of marker technology for the clear component authentication and identification.
