With an intense focus on quality, medical device manufacturers require an automation equipment provider who is intimately familiar with the challenges they face an can accommodate the timeline and needs of their production teams — or, at least they should. That’s because maximizing on the potential of automation in the medical device industry requires a unique approach that offers support throughout the entire project. In this eBook, we share the stories of four customers — all from segments within the … Read More
Automated Equipment Provides Consistency to Coiling Process
Invotec helps medical manufacturer transition manual coiling process to a more repeatable, accurate, automated process. The Challenge A medical device manufacturer was struggling to produce consistent results in a highly complex, manual sub-assembly of their device. The process called for an operator to manually coil a delicate, .020” thick wire around the exterior of a mandrel. Doing so required operators to feed, wind, clamp, coil, and cut the material before transferring the device to a welding station—all of which was … Read More
Reconfigurable System for Flexible Testing
How Invotec provided flexible testing in the form of a multi-station, semi-automated system. The Challenge A catheter manufacturer was looking for development equipment to be used in their research lab. They wanted the capability to perform testing and analyze the coating and curing process of a variety of materials across products of differing lengths. Most of the details of the tests were kept confidential, but they included adjusting factors such as product height, curing temperature, coating and curing duration, and … Read More
