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.
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 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.
