Assembly Method Development
Our in-house resources enable rapid plastic assembly method development and reduces risk during transfer to manufacturing
We recommend to our clients the assembly methods that will meet all product requirements at the lowest risk and cost.As specialists in medical disposables we have extensive experience with all plastic assemblymethods including press fits, snap fits, swaging, interlocks, UV bonding, pressure sensitive adhesive, thermal bonding, ultrasonic welding, laser welding, etc. All assembly methods are developed using production quality equipment onsite which allows us to complete iterations quickly and demonstrate a robust assembly process that is ready for high volume manufacturing. Our goal is to simulate the manufacturing environment here at Symbient which makes transfer to manufacturing an exercise rather than a process that involves risk.
Advanced Assembly Methods and Equipment
Can you create low-volume assemblies of my product?
Yes, for all of our development projects, we can mold and assemble low volumes of your product for testing, development, user studies, etc. Our injection molding and assembly equipment is identical to the machines used in production. This allows us to supply you with devices that are identical to production assemblies, enabling you to perform more extensive testing earlier in development to reduce risk and accelerate your product release. Symbient has capacity to fabricate several thousand units and can assist with transfer to manufacturing as quantities increase.
What if I need clean room assembly?
We have a clean room available in our assembly area. The controlled environment of a clean room can help ensure that dust and other particulate matter does not contaminate your product. We can also accommodate specialty requirements such as RNAse free assembly. The clean room can be set up in different configurations depending on your clinical trial or other testing requirements.
