Complex medical applications require devices and equipment that are protected from dust, chemical vapors, aerosol particles, airborne microbes and other contaminants that could compromise product quality, integrity, and safety.
Kaysun's commitment to excellence is well documented through our certifications, including ISO 13485:2016 and IATF 16949:2016. However, MedAccred Plastics accreditation puts us in an elite group of injection molders that can capably and confidently serve the medical industry — assuring medical OEMs of a focus on patient safety and an unparalleled benchmark of quality standards.
To shed some light on MedAccred, Quality Manager Ray Dorow and I have some key insights about what the accreditation process entails, and what it means for our medical OEM partners.
MD&M West in Anaheim recently wrapped up, and I’ve had some time to reflect on one of the key panel discussions: Exploring the Connection Between Your Manufacturing Process & Patient Safety.
Using color in medical device design is both practical and a business strategy. Switches and keyboard buttons, for example, might be grouped and color-coded for user-friendliness and improved functionality.1 Medical device color is also used aesthetically to complement surroundings, and strategically to carry through OEM branding on medical devices.
Medical plastic parts are among the most nuanced applications produced by custom injection molders. The complex nature of medical devices present unique design and engineering challenges, often starting with appropriate plastic selection.
Whether a medical device is used every day or only in emergency situations, it needs to function reliably when it’s called upon — every time. There is simply no room for error.
In the age of increasingly complex medical plastic parts, devices and equipment, that means designers and engineers need to pay even closer attention to detail to ensure precision performance.
Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) Minneapolis (MD&M) is returning to the Minneapolis Convention Center on October 23-24 and you don’t want to miss your chance to connect with leaders across every link in the supply chain!
Medical device performance is inextricably linked to the characteristics of the plastics used. Enhanced properties such as strength, flexibility, transparency, biocompatibility, and temperature and chemical resistance ensure patient safety. They are also mandated by the stringent regulations and classifications of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP).
With careful planning, complex injection molding can reduce costs, optimize functionality and improve aesthetics in medical devices.
