Medical Device Assembly & Packaging Case Studies
3D Printed Functional Medical Device Transfer Case
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.
Medical Device Packaging Design Optimization
A Cardiovascular Device Company came to J-Pac Medical with a request to establish a medical device contract packaging capability in the United States for an existing packaging flow had been established in Europe, as was the package design.
As part of the overall transfer, J-Pac proposed a package design and validation to reduce the overall footprint, as well as downgauge all packaging materials.
In addition to reducing the overall footprint and down-gauging packaging materials, our redesigned package also enabled a 40% increase in Eto Sterilization throughput. Freight gains were also realized. J-Pac also provided medical device cleanroom assembly as part of its medical device outsourcing services.
