Company Appoints Longtime Medical Device Executive to Advance Growth Strategy
A midsize, market-leading blood management company was having major quality issues with the molding supplier for critical components of its flagship product, resulting in supply chain interruptions and a high rate of customer complaints.
A mid-sized medical device company was ready to ramp up production of a complex, single-patient-use endoscopic device, but its initial supplier was unable to meet the volume requirements.
A leading, multinational medical technology company was seeking a strategic partner to develop and manufacture a key component of its next-generation, catheter-based stent delivery system: a tapered tip flexible enough to pass through the tortuous vessel.
A leading, multinational medical technology company needed to transfer manufacturing of a medical device to free up cleanroom manufacturing space for a new product. The customer was facing an aggressive 12-month time frame for the transfer to avoid interrupting product supply.
A leading multinational medical device company turned to Viant for a large tooling/injection-molding project: manufacturing all the plastic parts for a single-use device for minimally invasive surgery. The success of the entire program hinged on the technical feasibility of manufacturing one particularly complex plastic part.
Viant saw an opportunity to increase efficiencies by transferring a medical device it had been manufacturing in the US for more than a decade to its low-cost geography in Costa Rica. The product was a balloon catheter from a large surgery technology company based in Asia.
A large medical technology company acquired a line of 18 single-use accessories for laparoscopic surgery. It planned to redesign the molded components with the goal of reducing manufacturing cost without compromising quality.
A large cardiovascular company wanted to transfer manufacturing of a mature line of guide catheters to save costs and free up space to fuel further innovation at its US manufacturing facility. The catheter line was large and highly complex, with more than 100 SKUs, 4 different lengths, and a curved end that differentiated it from competitive products.
A leading surgical company had made the business decision to close its US manufacturing facility and transfer production to a low-cost geography. The product was a labor-intensive line of single-use devices for monitoring patient vital signs, for a total of 92 SKUs. The customer also targeted quality improvements and cost savings in packaging processes and materials.
Overmolding silicone onto thermoplastics can be challenging, but offers advantages over TPEs including chemical resistance, tensile strength, and compression set. Here are some best practices to maximize your success from Dave Mulera, Viant Corporate Vice President, Engineering.
