At Europlaz we use the latest design technology to provide advanced surfacing and fully integrated manufacturing applications. Our aim is to improve effectiveness when it comes to medical device prototyping, saving you time and costs by minimising design revisions and lead times.
The in house design team will continuously assess your product to ensure we are utilising the most efficient manufacturing processes.
This is done by:
Polymer selection: suitability to meet client specifications and suggestions on alternatives to existing materials.
Mould flow analysis: fast track suggestions on improving mouldability.
Europlaz adopts a rapid prototyping model manufacture, by means of:
Stereolithography, SLA & SLS
High-speed CNC machining
Vacuum casting (polyurethane)
Prototype mould tool design, aluminium or steel.
Single or multi-cavity mould tool design, including hot runner systems and robotics, where required.
Design assessment of existing tools, with suggestions to improve or extend tool longevity
Having a representative prototype of your medical device at an early stage in the development process provides insight into design features, tactility, function and can eliminate costly errors encountered further in the design process. We can provide this to you through a full 3D printing service for the production of medical device prototypes, fixtures, jigs and mock-ups.
We offer a full suite of materials that replicate materials from rubber through to metal and can offer extremely short lead-times. As this service is provided solely for our clients as part of our project services, you will benefit from the same expertise working on the 3D prints as those working on a full-scale production, giving the benefit of ensuring the 3D samples are compatible with planned future manufacturing methods.
