Particularly for medical devices, in-vitro diagnostics and pharma products, EU and FDA regulations enforce a unique device identification (UDI) for quality control (MDR). The plastic material segment accounted for 76% of the overall revenue share in 2019 of the medical industry.
Injection molding is a cost-efficient process ideal for high volume production of medical device components in plastics. Several advantages, such as reduced weight, easier sterilization process, increased versatility to manufacture complicated designs and capability to meet tight tolerance requirements, make medical grade plastics the preferred material for a variety of medical devices. And injection molding comes here as the forming process of choice. Moreover, the safety and functionality of medical devices often rely on very small parts, which have to be marked for quality control and traceability.
Injection molders are facing a severe price battle to meet marking requirements and industry 4.0 criteria. We support them by providing a cost-effective solution enabling unique device identifcation, data warehousing and manufacturing process optimization.
Similarly, our traceability solution is suitable for labware (such a well plates, vials, tubes and containers) which need to be tracked throughout an experiment, for instance to properly compare experimental and control groups between each other.
