SALT LAKE CITY, June 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Biomerics LLC, a leading contract manufacturer and innovative polymer solutions provider for the medical device industry, announced today the launch of its proprietary Rapid-Adapt™ injection molding tool system.
“We are very proud of the Rapid-Adapt™ system—we’ve been working on it for the last two years and we’re excited to see it launch,” stated Dan Brittingham, VP of Engineering at Biomerics. “The Rapid-Adapt™ system enables us to provide fast, low-cost tooling solutions for vertically overmolded ISO 594 luers, ‘Y/T’ connectors, and junctions, as well as horizontally molded custom components and inserts. Ultimately, the Rapid-Adapt™ system allows us to better support our customers and help them get their products to market more efficiently.”
The Rapid-Adapt™ system is a proprietary injection molding tooling solution that utilizes a custom base and cavity design to enable tool standardization of catheters and medical components. The tooling system is available in 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 cavity drops, and can be applied to prototype manufacturing, bridge tooling, and/or full scale production. The system allows for fast cavity exchange without the removal of the base from the molding press. By stocking standard inserts, Biomerics can turn around new designs for its customers in as little as 2-3 weeks.
“As an FDA registered facility and an ISO-13485 certified manufacturer, we produce devices that must adhere to the requirements laid out under current good manufacturing practices (cGMP),” remarked Mike Anderson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Biomerics. “In order to ensure our compliance as a contract manufacturer, we have to document and manufacture products with precision and accuracy. The Rapid-Adapt™ system was developed with respect to cGMP and was designed to cut lead times and capital costs associated with traditional tooling, while preserving product realization/design transfer requirements.”
Travis Sessions, CEO of Biomerics, concluded, “We are excited about the Rapid-Adapt™ system and the flexibility and value it provides for customers. Combined with our expertise in material technologies, device development, and product manufacturing, the Rapid-Adapt™ system helps us deliver solutions to our customers faster than ever before. We are thrilled to expand our manufacturing capabilities and we are proud of the engineers who worked hard to develop this unique system.”
