A well-known medical device company was looking for assistance with quick-turnaround prototypes of an extremely small electrical connector. The complex design required small metal parts to be etched, formed, heat-treated and plated. The manufacturing feasibility of the design was initially a concern, but our team was determined to make it happen.
We produced multiple prototypes of the electrical connector with various material thicknesses and design modifications. Upon prototype approval, we shifted gears to production, taking over additional processing and coordinating a vendor for gold plating. By the time our customer was purchased by a major medical device manufacturer, full production totaled more than 200,000 components.
