FDM enabled Acist to design this display assembly with fewer parts than were possible before.

Medical Manufacturing

Gain productivity and lower costs

Eliminate medical manufacturing constraints and make production more agile and responsive.

Traditional constraints

Whether you're producing medical device prototypes, small lots for pilot commercialization or clinical trials, or fixtures to aid mass production, the typical process often requires tooling with lead times and costs that increase with design complexity. So, by necessity, the manufacturing process substantially influences design.

Traditional products

Process constraints leave their mark on your final products. Innovative ideas are discarded when they can't be proven quickly or manufactured cost-effectively. And when shifts in the product ecosystem force immediate engineering changes, there is often too little time to evaluate all possible solutions. This can result in changes that are more incidental than innovative.

Real innovation

The efficiency and flexibility of Stratasys 3D Printing solutions complement traditional manufacturing, empowering medical device manufacturers push the limits of innovation while reducing costs, streamlining operations and accelerating time to market.

Reduce scrap, rework and retooling. At a fraction of the cost of machining, 3D printing allows more design and tooling revisions in far less time. Testing more thoroughly will help you avoid expensive rework and go to market faster.

Get unmatched design freedom. Produce organic, complex geometries that can't be manufactured any other way. For parts that will be 3D printed, like jigs, fixtures and custom components, you can set aside the usual design-for-manufacturing constraints.

Move quickly from prototype to final product. In just hours or days, you can 3D print parts, patterns, molds or tool masters directly from CAD data, and train production staff using the same processes and materials you’ll use for mass production.

Manufacture for clinical trials and pilot commercialization. Begin short production runs using the same processes and materials as your mass-produced product. At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can 3D print smooth, accurate Digital ABS injection molds, tough polycarbonate forming patterns, detailed casting patterns or 3D printed components for your final product.

Manage digital inventory and revise or replace as needed. Excess inventory saps your bottom line. 3D printing tools and parts directly from digital files can reduce waste and warehousing costs. Plus, by eliminating the usual lead times, you can respond agilely to demand spikes, design changes or damaged tools.
