The world of electronics, prototyping and manufacturing can be a complicated place. Some companies choose to have one ECM do a prototype and another do the production run. While some believe this is a smart move, there are many benefits associated with hiring a company that does everything under one roof. It is possible to save significant money and time by starting with an ECM who does prototypes in house and can also handle your production run. After all, you already trust their prototyping skills; why not also trust their assembly?

Prototyping is an important stage of product development. This useable representation of your design allows you to understand your product. The working model allows you to test various design features, verify design functionality and identify issues as early as possible within the development stage. Prototyping is often well worth the time, effort, and investment. If done well, the prototyping process will allow the design to be completely optimized before full production occurs. This will not only save you time and money, but guarantee you will deliver a dynamite product.
Labor cost can add up to the biggest part of your PCBA manufacturing budget. So how do you cut costs without sacrificing the quality of your project? It is actually easier than it seems. It all starts with finding the right electronic contract manufacturer to partner with in order to create your printed circuit boards on a budget.
PCBs can get lost in translation between the designer and the manufacturer. What may look like an amazing design on paper may be difficult, costly, or even impossible to actually make. It’s important that your design for manufacturing analysis (DFM) is taken into consideration.
You and your team work hard to bring a product to market. However, overlooking one tiny detail can mean the difference between a printed circuit board’s success and sending your PCB back to the drawing board. A Design for Manufacturability (DFM) analysis will take the worry out of the process. Performing DFM before production starts is proven to save time and money by making sure your design meets the requirements of manufacturing processes to actually produce the PCB.
Industry demand has kept most medical device manufacturers engaged in a constant battle to stay on top of the growing medical device manufacturing market.
However, the industry is splitting.
Your legacy product has served you well. But is it time for an update? Bringing your legacy assembly up to speed with current and future technology doesn't mean going back to the drawing board. When the designs are no longer available, reverse engineering might be the solution you’re looking for. With reverse engineering you can have your ECM figure out exactly how your legacy components work and start looking for ways to update that technology for the future.
The medtech industry is constantly changing. Technology evolves at a rapid pace and companies are working hard to keep up. The pressure is on to bring new and improved medical devices to market to revolutionize healthcare and to better (or save) lives. At the same time, companies need to improve efficiency and keep costs low. That is why finding the right medical device contract manufacturing partner is so important. You want a medical device contract manufacturer who cares as much about your product as you do and can stick to your budget. So, it is important to consider several top traits of a CM while searching for your next partner.
Rapid technology growth and evolution is revolutionizing the healthcare industry, and your company is leading the way to groundbreaking patient treatments. But you can't do it alone. When considering outsourcing production of your medical device, there is a lot you need to consider when talking to medical device contract manufacturers.
As Baby Boomers age, and technology advances the ways in which consumers interact with medical care, medical device manufacturing is seeing new growth. Demand for new and improved medical devices continues to grow, meaning more demand for medical device manufacturers. When demand gets high and changes are happening quickly, contract manufacturing always has an important role to play. This will be and is true especially in medical device contract manufacturing.
Prototyping is a crucial part of designing a new medical device. Without it you will never know if your idea is viable. Of course, creating a prototype is easier said than done. Today most medical device companies prefer to hire another company to breathe life into their designs. Outsourcing your medical device prototype can bring many benefits along with it. Working with the right partner can speed up the medical device prototyping process and cut your time to market.
Technology is often developed to solve a problem or meet an opportunity. The world of electronic contract manufacturing changes on a daily basis. So when it comes to outsourcing, you want a partner that has a forward-thinking approach and adapts with technology. Your electronic contact manufacturer (ECM) must be up on the latest advances and employ high tech know-how.
