The Challenge: Manufacturing Process Tradeoffs for Medical Product Development

Plastic injection molding (IM) is ideal for high-volume manufacturing, but not all medical injection molders can provide tooling that is cost-effective for functional prototypes and low-volume production (LVP.) As a result, medical product designers may be forced to use another process during these stages of the product development cycle. That’s a lost opportunity for identifying and eliminating problems that could occur during high-volume production, sometimes with costly consequences.
