MTD Micro Molding (Charlton, Mass.) recently developed a Quick Launch Program for advanced medical micro molding to focus on production.
“OEMs that are on the fast track to bring a design to market often need an ultra-efficient path that avoids lead time and budget barriers,” Gary Hulecki, executive VP, said. “This program was designed in response to the needs we are hearing from our customers and the industry.”
The Quick Launch Program is an accelerated program that is designed to help OEMs that are in the process of moving micro medical parts into production. Customers who use the program will have the opportunity to use MTD Micro Molding’s engineering team and materials expertise.
“We understand what polymer materials will be a good fit for your micro medical designs for the long term. We can work with customers to determine what materials will work now and be easily sustained as you go forward,” Patrick Haney, an R&D engineer, said.
MTD Micro Molding currently focuses on advanced medical micro molding. The new program will offer an additional resource to OEMs who might need a cost-effective solution to increase production volumes after prototyping, according to MTD Micro Molding.
“Customers sometimes worry they don’t have the capital to change vendors. Because our company is built for high performance in validated production, we often save them considerable time and money in the long term,” said Hulecki.
MTD Micro Molding’s Quick Launch Program would not cost customers any additional cost if the project qualifies. The company says customers would receive discounted tooling with volume commitments and lifetime tooling maintenance.
