Webinars: Manufacturing & Prototyping

Product Development Lifecycle Management: Optimizing Quality, Cost, and Speed to Market


As medical device original equipment manufacturers look to bring innovative devices to market, the balance of cost, quality and speed is critical. It is more important than ever to find a partner that will help optimize design for manufacturability, delivering a fast development process that is ready for full scale-up and commercialization while never sacrificing quality.

This 60-minute Webinar will offer insight into:

  • Ways to accelerate early-stage prototyping and development
  • High-precision extrusion capabilities that solve unique challenges
  • High-precision silicone and plastic-molded medical parts for critical devices
  • A fully integrated solution for finished medical devices

A Q&A session follows the technical presentation.
