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.

As tech companies grow, so has the popularity of reverse engineering. Reverse engineering is the process of disassembling a product or component in order to study it to find out how and why it works. From exploring incomplete design data and understanding design flaws to sustaining competition, the advantages of reverse engineering are widespread.
You’ve got a product that just isn’t functioning quite right. Maybe it’s in production, but you’re not convinced it’s going to perform how you originally intended. Or, maybe it’s still in prototype and technically it’s meeting your needs, but already you can imagine some of the future issues that are going to crop up.
You know you have a great product, but as times change, perhaps the product needs to change a little too. A big issue in the tech industry is parts obsolescence. This means there is a continuous need to update successful product designs. Tweaking and troubleshooting a successful product does not equate to reinventing the wheel, and you don't need to rely on pre-made parts because you can fabricate the components you need. How, you ask? It is achieved with some simple reverse engineering.
Most companies adhere to the old adage “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” Unfortunately, that philosophy can be hard to stick to in the ever evolving world of electronics. Even with rapid pace electronic breakthroughs, older technologies are still extremely valuable in countless industry applications. These legacy systems, products, and components sometimes just need a little bit of attention to bring them up to date and keep them functional. If you have a great product and you want to keep it viable, you need to update it. Here is how to rebuild your legacy product.
In the world of electronic manufacturing, pre-production work, such as PCB prototyping, is vital to building a cost-efficient, quality product. In a marketplace that demands the latest technology yesterday, we often feel pressure to get right to production.
Printed circuit boards are intricate and perform vital work in your product. Prototyping your PCB is always recommended, but particularly if your product is headed for the consumer market. There are many advantages to PCB prototyping.
