Client's Demand

The medical device company just finished developing a new medical device and was planning to make a small batch of new products to test the market. It is an automatic nucleic acid molecular hybridization instrument. The first batch was 5 sets. One is for trade fair and marketing material preparation, and the rest four is open for selling to its customers.

Machining Solution

The medical device is a typical large-sized product. For a short-run production of 5 sets of prototype plastic parts, vacuum casting is usually the most optimal and economical machining method. There were two kinds of plastic materials to make all the prototype plastic parts: ABS-like material for the non-transparent parts, PC-like material for the transparent part. After manufacturing, the non-transparent prototype plastic parts were painted in matte white, and the transparent ones were painted in transparent blue. The company logo was silk-screened on the enclosure.

To assemble each set of the prototype plastic parts, we need to use metal mounts and screws, and also several nonstandard components which were CNC machined. The client would put all the electronic parts on their own. In some cases, our customers send the electronic parts to us for assembly, thus don’t need to do extra work but receive complete products and mounted prototype plastic parts.
