From tight environmental controls to precision tolerances to regulatory compliance, medical device manufacturing presents some of the most difficult production and prototyping challenges.
3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is widely used in the medical industry for medical devices and component parts. Choosing the right manufacturing and prototyping partner is critical to bringing your products to the market on time and producing them reliably and cost-effectively.
We utilize a variety of 3D printing and medical additive manufacturing processes and materials that stand up to the requirements you need in designing and producing medical devices. Processes like stereolithography (SLA), Carbon Digital Light Synthesis (DLS), HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and metal 3D printing are used to create highly complex and intricate parts in a short timeframe.
Our in-house capabilities are not limited to just 3D printing prototypes and production parts. We also have the capacity, equipment, and expertise to drive your production projects forward. We operate EDM, CNC turning, 3-axis and 5-axis CNC machining, and medical injection molding and urethane molding. We supply component parts for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of medical devices and diagnostic equipment, such as MRI and X-ray equipment, as well as parts for surgical devices. Our team will work with you to help design, develop, and control the most efficient manufacturing process to fit your timetable, quality requirements, and cost-of-production objectives.
Reduce production costs and lead times by cutting out costly setups and operations with high-speed milling, turning, and 5-axis CNC machining services for rapid prototyping and production.
Materials: Our CNC machining equipment can handle a wide variety of materials, including titanium, stainless steel, Inconel® alloys, polycarbonate (PC), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and polyetheretherketone (PEEK).
Medical device injection molding is used for applications such as implantable components, breakers, test tubes, and other containers, surgical equipment and components, orthopedics, and more. production.
Materials: Some of the more common injection molding materials we use include nylon, PC/ABS blends, PC, polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and more.
The medical industry relies on plastic and polyurethane products to meet accuracy, decisiveness, scratch resistance, tear protection, stability, and insulating properties high performance and overall sustainability.
Our prototype and production experts will help you find an economical, high-quality material solution for your medical applications. Here are a few materials we use for medical, life sciences, and healthcare components:
Whether your project requires custom-colored materials, textured paints, or final part assembly, our team can manufacture all custom finishes under one roof while following the highest-quality industry standards.
We have extensive experience with medical applications—ranging from helping manufacturers of large diagnostic systems find new, more cost-effective parts to delivering high-precision 3D printed prototypes for custom surgical implants in a matter of hours.
Understanding that medical devices demand specialized expertise and require stringent industry standards, we’re certified to ISO 13485:2016, a comprehensive quality system standard for the design and manufacture of medical devices. This international certification shows our commitment to the customer and regulatory requirements necessary for the production of medical devices, including those used in diagnostic imaging and surgical instruments.
We also hold quality standards for WBENC (National Women’s Business Enterprise Certification) and WOSB (Woman-Owned Small Business) for successfully meeting WBENC’s standards for a Women’s Business Enterprise as a woman-owned, operated, and controlled business.
See how we partnered with Vitamix and Carbon to redefine what's possible. We took a legacy, six-piece, injection-molded part design and turned it into a new, one-piece, 3D-printed part.
TTH’s integrated approach to design, prototyping, and production allows you to bring your concept to market faster, more cost-effectively, than virtually anyone else.
