Designers and manufacturers are constantly challenged to obtain better production yields. However, due to the complexity of manufacturing, it is difficult to create and maintain reliable manufacturing processes. Many devices use expensive machined components; require highly skilled labor using a microscope; and require complex secondary operations for assembly. These methods of manufacturing place limitations on size, complexity, material selection, production yields, and profitability.
Micro subassembly can provide an excellent alternative for designing and manufacturing medical devices used in MIS. It combines our best technologies in micro manufacturing to enable designers and manufacturers to streamline manufacturing processes and create a more robust and reliable design for manufacturing.
Micro subassembly can also improve the quality assurance process and provide a high degree of assurance that the MIS device accomplishes its intended requirements while reducing or eliminating the building-it-right checks.
