Injection molding is known for producing high volumes of tight-tolerance parts. What medical designers may not realize, however, is that some contract manufacturers can also cost-effectively prototype functional samples for testing and evaluation. Whether it’s for single-use devices, repeated-use devices or durable medical equipment, plastic injection molding is a versatile process that can help you bring products to market faster.
Like any manufacturing process, there are best practices for injection molding. They fall into four major areas: part design, material selection, tooling and quality assurance.
