Finding the right company to partner with for medical device assembly is more than just hiring a company, it is about forging a partnership that will be able to continue with production of the current device and also in moving forward with new prototype development and device manufacturing in the future.
There are several important considerations that need to be at the center of making a decision. The effectiveness and the quality control offered by the company completing the assembly is going to impact your speed to get the product to market, your ability to consistently fill orders and the overall project management.
Selecting the correct company will ensure you are working with a company that understands the requirements, that has a solid background in providing medical device assembly and that has the physical capacity to complete orders on time and on budget.
Not all companies that offer device assembly services have experience in working specifically with equipment and devices that will be marketed as medical equipment.
Having specific experience with medical device assembly is a critical consideration. It is not a good idea to work with a business that is doing this for the first time with your project. There is a very complicated set of procedures, documentation and traceability requirements that need to be in place in order to not only get a prototype to production but also during production as well.
Often with prototype to production types of needs, it is going to be essential for the company hired to be able to take an innovative approach to the production and assembly.
By working with a company that is flexible yet committed to quality standards and collaborative work with the customer, it is possible to help to reduce the costs of production or find ways to be more efficient. All this has to occur without any compromise to standards, manufacturing and assembly requirements and specifications as they apply to the production of medical devices and equipment.
Take time to research different companies and make it a point to talk in person with their team. Look for a company that is interested in understanding the complete project and working with your own engineering and in-house team to develop a strong and vibrant working relationship.Add to favorites
