Medical Device Redesign

Prototype

CHALLENGE: A medical device company needed a quick turnaround on a new design for one their products.

SOLUTION: Using an SLA printer to print multiple iterations in a transparent and tough material, our team could stress test and navigate the design process to get results quicker.

IMPACT: Reduced development cost by 97% vs injection modeling and iteration time from 6 weeks to 1 day.

Capacitor Holder Redesign

Product

CHALLENGE: The Select Laster Sintering (SLS) capacitor holder from a 3D printing service bureau was out of tolerance and the design created stress on the wire connections when trying to remove the capacitor pack.

SOLUTION: Switched to a more reliable and cost effective 3D printing method after discussing design improvements.

IMPACT: 20% cost reduction. Stress-free capacitor pack removal and better fit.

Launch Pack

Product

CHALLENGE: Low quantity injection molded part mandated purchasing 2 years of supply and amortizing the molding cost into the cost of the finished goods.

SOLUTION: Redesign the part to enable 3D printing capability.

IMPACT: Reduced inventory to 2 months: $10,000 – 50% reduction in COGS.

Production Alignment

Assembly Aid

CHALLENGE: Production Team had difficulty aligning a sticker with complex geometry to a sheet metal enclosure.

SOLUTION: Designed a sticker assembly aid that perfectly aligns to the enclosure.

IMPACT: Tripled daily unit production. $56,000 labor cost savings.

Production Tool

Fixture

CHALLENGE: Customer needed a safe and reliable way to remove a tab from an existing shell with a curved body to accommodate new electrical layout.
