3D Printed Functional Medical Device Transfer Case

Return to learning center

The Challenge

An early-stage medical device company required a prototype of a unique instrument procedure case that involved unique seals and hinges that would experience high mechanical forces.

Our Solutions

J-Pac created a 3D printed, working prototype that allowed the functionality of the device to be operated and tested under real-world conditions. The prototype included gaskets and small hinges with the actual pins to be incorporated to match the exact design.

The Results

The rapid prototyping of functional parts identified areas in the medical device transfer case that needed design modification. The high material strength of the 3D printed materials also allowed the printer to produce manufacturing-ready fixtures used for process development.
