Bearing Manufacturing Processes & Materials That Are Changing the Healthcare Field

Posted: Aug 30, 2019 2:13:17 PM

The medical manufacturing industry is rapidly evolving as manufacturers continue to leverage new technologies and processes in order to shorten lead times, improve quality control and produce more effective components for use in medical devices. In this blog, we'll take a look at a few of the bearing manufacturing processes and materials that are helping to change the healthcare field for the better.

Shortening Lead Times Through Advanced Supply Chain Management

Healthcare professionals need to be able to secure the medical device components that they need as rapidly as possible. Through advanced supply chain management procedures you are able to rapidly reduce the lead time on all medical device components. It is crucial that medical manufacturers produce and ship all medical components on time without delay.

When you work with OEMs they are precise with their needs. They need products of quality that will decrease their lead time. It is important that the medical manufacturer is reliable not only in the quality of the product, but in a timely manner.

Improving Manufacturing Reliability Through State-of-the-Art Quality Control

Quality control is an essential concern for all industries, but it is especially important when it comes to medical manufacturing. Using state-of-the-art technology as well as a manual quality control process that is designed specifically for custom components helps eliminate potential risk, which is crucial in medical manufacturing. With a hands on quality control department OEMs can rely on the products they are receiving, therefore reducing the risk and increasing reliability in the final product.

Manufacturing Precision Soda lime Glass Balls for Metering Devices

With an ever-changing market, it is important that manufacturing companies find ways to cut expenses and increase product quality. Sometimes, they are able to find products that perform the same job, but they are cheaper and faster to make. There was a time not too long ago when 316 stainless steel balls were used in metering devices for fluid flow(IV fluids). Today, however, precision soda lime glass balls are used instead. These glass balls offer the same level of strength and corrosion resistance as stainless steel balls, but they have a much lighter weight and can be produced for a fraction of the cost.
