    Our production services include all the trimmings, from procuring needed materials and cutting to marketing the final product. Our unique position at the top of the manufacturing hierarchy has given us the resources to manage even the most demanding client pitches. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) constantly make use of our resources to bring their product ideas to life in hopes of achieving further accuracy and facilitating daily medical practice. Outsourcing the production process allows them to drastically save on production expenditures, time, and labour.  

    If we’ve learned anything from all our years in the field, it’s that each project is unique. Therefore, we make it a point to conduct in-depth conversations with our client during the beginning phases of the project to make sure that we have all the details down before proceeding with the manufacturing process. As a result, the final medical device will live up to your expectations without the constant hassle of revisions and corrections.  

    If it’s not help with production you’re seeking, but customisation, say no more. Our technology allows us to customise your machinery for whatever purpose you may have in mind. All we need is a bit of time and a detailed plan from your end to make it happen.  

    Thanks to our rigorous inspection processes, you can expect to discover potential medical device weaknesses early on and save yourself abundant repair costs further down the line. This proactive approach is what has endeared us to so many of our customers because they know they’re getting a thorough service for their money, thus decreasing their downtime and maximising their profits. 

    What Exactly is Medical Device Manufacturing? 

    If you’ve clicked on this article, you’re likely already aware of what medical device manufacturing is. For the benefit of those who aren’t entirely sure what it entails, we’ve explained below what it entails. It is the production of medical devices for use in the healthcare sector. Such devices are intended to improve a patient’s quality of life, aid in diagnosis and treatment, testing, etc. Such devices range from self-care products to critical medical devices.  

    Ever since the industry’s conception, the medical device catalogue has accrued thousands upon thousands of products. This is good news for healthcare seekers, who can rest assured that their every health requirement can be catered to with a large number of options available on the market.   

    Expert-AMT are proud to say that we’re one of the biggest contributors, as we produce a vast array of such products. Our company has become renowned for leading the medical device movement, utilising only the very best automation and engineering techniques for optimum quality across the board.  

    Orthopaedics is one of the key areas we manufacture products for. With the ageing population on the rise, broken hips and diseased joints warrant the need for viable orthopaedic solutions. These include functional prostheses, knee/hip implants, spinal support devices, and arthroscopy tools.  

    Due to the highly physical nature of such devices and to promote maximum mobility for the patient, our professionals make it a point to rely on highly specific construction techniques, mainly metal injection moulding. They also focus on the fast production of devices to keep up with rapid demand.  

    Another speciality of ours is surgical tools, such as scalpels, sutures, and dilators. Our expertise in the engineering field has even allowed us to manufacture robotic assistants to facilitate surgery and improve patient outcomes. With such high levels of accuracy, surgeons can exponentially decrease the margins of human error and improve their patients’ odds.   

    With a growing diabetic population, it’s no surprise that we have been tackling the manufacturing of highly accurate tools, such as continuous glucose monitoring trackers and glucose testing strips. With devices like these, diabetic patients proactively take their conditions into their own hands and participate in active monitoring to avoid health complications. The medical device becomes a life companion that facilitates treatment and improves the overall quality of life for such patients.  

    When it comes to the design, production, and assembly of medical devices, we’re proud to be the go-to company. From catheters to gloves, needles, and more, whatever you need us to manufacture, just let us know. Be it a highly specific healthcare field, or just everyday equipment, we tick all the boxes for comprehensive, high-quality medical tools. 

    Assembly 

    Our assembly process implements the very best standards of sterility and hygiene from start to finish. We take it upon ourselves to choose the very best assembly option for your needs, providing a suitable gateway for the medical device’s manufacture.  

    It goes without saying that all we do is in line with current medical standards, as our machinery elaborately pieces together the different elements of the medical device along the assembly line. We are acutely aware that the medical field seldom leaves room for error, especially when the welfare of human lives is at stake. For this reason, our medical devices are produced with unrivalled precision so that they are compliant with the highest standards of health practices.  

    The assembly process that we currently adopt is a result of years of technique revision and redevelopment. Over the span of many years, we have refined our automated processes to become as streamlined as possible, always keeping our clients’ requirements in our sights.  

    With several production platforms on our premises, it has become essential for us to adopt a standardised level of performance. The resultant operational consistency has allowed us to shift valuable energy towards the details of the manufacturing process and ensure a swift production rate in response to demand.  

    Our team help you navigate the standardised criteria of product testing, such as Concept Simulation, FAT, PoP, process validation, and SAT. With our engineers by your side, the process becomes a whole lot simpler for our clients, guaranteeing you superb results regardless of whether we’re producing a single unit of machinery or a whole batch of products. Say goodbye to the days of generalised solutions.  

    Expert-AMT has made sure to accommodate every single one of its clients over the years, paying special attention to individualised needs. Whatever your requirements for your medical device, our product cell templates and processing modules ensure a smooth production process. Throughout it all, our engineers aim for standardised consistency to ensure that every medical device delivers a unified level of functionality and performance. 

    Production 

    Expert-AMT have slowly risen to the top of the medical manufacturing industry, catering to clients in the name of medical and automotive purposes. No matter which one you’re interested in, we are the specialists for you.  

    We serve a wide range of clinical contexts, from public clinics to specialised hospital settings. Not only do we manufacture, but we also provide extensive consultation sessions during the drawing board stage. Blue-Chip affiliates and second-tier organisations are just some of the clients we work with to deliver medical device solutions. 

    Fifty years in the engineering and manufacturing fields is no small feat. This accomplishment is a source of pride for us, drawing clients to our door for all types of production requests. We have established a name for ourselves in the industry by means of client loyalty, dedication, and excellent workmanship.  

    Be it a national or global scale, clients remain very pleased with our work and even go so far as to recommend us to their associates. Word of mouth has spread our name far and wide, bringing ever more clients flocking to benefit from our services. Perhaps what makes us so special is our unrelenting attention to client requirements, as we make sure to execute every detail until the medical device is to their satisfaction.  

    During the early initiation stage, each project will be allocated an overseeing manager. The manager works alongside the medical device manufacturer and makes sure that the product is executed smoothly and with no delays.  

    Another managerial duty is to ensure that all production standards are being upheld to the highest degree, in tandem with the client’s specifications. With the added benefit of machinery precision, it’s no wonder that our medical devices retain great characteristics of quality, hygiene, and safety. With keen eyes on every step of the project, managers polish the production process, leaving no room for unnecessary errors or disappointment.  

    You will receive regular updates from our team regarding the process timeline, ensuring that you and our team are always on the same page. Once the production process has come to an end, our team will coordinate with yours, and the medical device batch can be shipped to you immediately with no delay. Even if it’s been years since you’ve worked with us, we can handle the shipment of your stored devices no matter how long it’s been.

    Advantages of Medical Device Manufacturing  

    Additive manufacturing (commonly referred to as 3D printing) is a computer-controlled sequential layering of materials to create three-dimensional shapes. The principal use of additive manufacturing is in the production of geometrically complex components. This makes it especially useful to produce medical devices and prototyping. 

    Such technologies represent an expensive investment, not just for the equipment but for the training that’s required to operate such equipment. Many in the healthcare sector opt instead to outsource medical device production. Before you do, it’s worth exploring your options, including assessing the advantages of teaming up with a full-service contract medical device manufacturer. 

    This choice will have a direct knock-on effect on the efficiency of your manufacturing and distribution processes. It’ll also directly impact the quality of your products and the performance and profitability of your company. The simple reality is that an end-to-end service like the one we provide offers a level of service that simply cannot be beaten by in-house or multi-supplier setups.

    Laser Tracking  

    Laser trackers are a far more precise alternative to optical methods that can often be hindered by human error and limited perception. Laser tracking measures two angles and a distance and works by aiming a laser at a retro-reflective target. This target is held against whatever object is being measured. The path is retraced as the light is reflected. The light re-enters the laser tracker at the same point at which it left. 

    Some of this light enters the distance meter, which measures the distance from the SMR to the tracker. This form of distance measuring is by far the most accurate form available. It is often used for taking measurements of entire assemblies without having to dismantle a thing. Such precision coupled with time-saving benefits makes laser trackers a solid investment for any company to make. 

    Come to Expert-AMT and let us design and develop a laser tracker that’s perfectly suited to your requirements.
