Vascular Medical Device Injection Molding Case Study
A leading global manufacturer of medical devices for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease required a new Adapter.
The Specs of the Adapter Project
The challenge for this medical device injection molding project was to design and build Tooling to injection mold the Adapter to specifications and budget.
|Material Spec||ISO 109993/UPS Class VI Compliant|
|Polymer Material||ABS, Lustran 348|
|Tolerance||+/-.002 several dimensions|
The Tooling was sourced to J&L Plastic Molding’s Tooling Vendor. The Tooling Work and initial sampling were completed by the Vendor. The Tool was to be shipped to J&L’s Connecticut facility for production. J&L’s in-house Toolroom will handle all Tool Maintenance.
Tool Design: The Tool was designed by the Tooling Vendor. The 3D CAD Design of the Tool was submitted to J&L and approved prior to machining.
Tool Sampling: To prepare for the sampling of the tool J&L shipped the ABS Material to the Tooling Vendor for the sampling process. After the toolmaking process was complete the Tooling Samples were submitted to J&L and approved.
Sampling at J&L & Pad Printing: The Tooling arrived at J&L’s facility and was sampled. J&L submitted the injection molded samples and was approved for Production.
