RAPID MEDICAL DEVICE PROTOTYPING AND SPEED TO MARKET IS CRITICAL in the development process. Medical Murray maintains an extensive inventory of materials and equipment to quickly produce intricate complex devices, such as multi-lumen composite catheters. Also aiding our speed is our extensive in-house prototyping lab and resident tool maker, allowing for fast design, development, and manufacturing services to provide prototypes, fixtures, special assembly machinery and molds.
Medical Murray’s prototyping labs, located at our development facilities in Chicago, Charlotte, and San Carlos (San Francisco Bay Area), equip the engineering team with capabilities and resources that meet client requirements fast – resulting in rapid assessment of form, fit, and function.
Early prototypes are built in our laboratory which is stocked with tubing, adhesives, and mandrels, and equipped with a wide range of equipment, including:
- 3D printing
- Vertical lamination
- Laser cutting and bonding
- Balloon forming and attachment
- Nitinol fabrication and heat setting
- RF welding
- Ultrasonic welding
- Plasma treatment
- Silicone LIM
- Pad printing
In collaboration with fast turn-around vendors, we can quickly make and change prototypes to prove concepts early.
Our diverse capabilities provide our customers with a wide range of modern resources and facilities for prototype and tooling development throughout the product development cycle, up to and including custom manufacturing. Our vertical integration and vendor relations allows first prototypes to be in-hand quickly with high quality. We welcome our customers to work alongside us and leverage our full breadth of capabilities, resulting in faster prototype fabrication.
