Medical Device Manufacturing
Our team of medical device engineers loves working with you to create high-quality medical devices. Learn more about our methods, resources, and more by clicking the links below.
Our medical device manufacturing team uses lean production systems to cut your costs and save on scrap. We develop solutions just for you.
3D ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
We utilize additive 3D additive printing manufacturing technology to create medical devices that can improve patient care.
CLASS 7 CLEANROOMS
Our ISO Class 7 Cleanroom allows us to manufacture medical devices that are ready to be used in surgery. We focus on creating high-quality medical devices.
OUR LEAN MANUFACTURING PROCESS
We use a lean manufacturing process to reduce scrap and save on costs. We monitor scrap and workplace efficiencies consistently, so we can tell when something isn’t going as efficiently as possible. Then, we work together internally to address that situation, reduce your costs, and keep our medical devices high quality and ready for surgical use.
WHAT IS LEAN MANUFACTURING?
Lean manufacturing, or lean production, is a method that focuses on reducing or eliminating waste and optimizing productivity. It’s how we simplify and organize our work environment, all while saving you money.
To do this, our team focuses on evaluating the following areas:
- Overproduction. Are we producing an unnecessary amount that takes up more storage?
- Waiting. Is there a lot of lag between two steps of the process?
- Inventory. Do we have too much material on hand before it’s used?
- Transportation. Are we moving materials as efficiently as possible?
- Over-processing. Are we working on too many things at once instead of focusing on one?
- Motion. Can our team transition easily between tasks?
- Defects. How much time goes into fixing problems?
- Workforce. Is our team being used efficiently?
Once we measure and evaluate these areas, we make meaningful changes that positively impact your bottom line.

INNOVATING WITH 3D PRINTING
Our team is working with community partners to implement groundbreaking 3D printing technology from Carbon, Inc. This initiative allows us to create production grade parts using medical grade materials and tolerances. This accelerates both medical device development and the component manufacturing cycle.
3D PRINTED MEDICAL DEVICES
We are excited to be a part of a two-and-a-half-year collaborative research program with Grand Valley State University and the applied Medical Device Institute (aMDI). This half-million-dollar study will implement 3D printing technology from Carbon, Inc. to explore the application of 3D additive printing in final medical device manufacturing.
Our team is thrilled to be a part of this opportunity to further the medical device industry.
QUALITY ABOVE ALL ELSE
We are proud to have a 1,000-square-foot Class 7 Cleanroom, which is managed with very stringent standard operating procedures. Our cleanroom allows us to manufacture high-quality medical devices to the most exacting standards. In fact, we pride ourselves on maintaining a very low particulate count and strong environmental controls to ensure our devices are ready to use in surgery.
WHAT IS AN ISO CLASS 7 CLEANROOM?
A cleanroom is a controlled environment. Most medical devices require a Class 8 Cleanroom to produce, but our team is happy to work in an ISO Class 7 Cleanroom, which meets standards that are one level higher than this requirement.
Cleanrooms can be expensive for customers to maintain on their own, which is why we’re happy to offer such an important space for medical device manufacturing and packaging.

We work hard to keep our Class 7 Cleanroom up to rigorous standards. Learn more about this space and how it can benefit patients in our blog.
