Design for Manufacturability from the Start

From our first contact with a medical device manufacturer looking to launch a new product, FMI engineers assess the project with Design for Manufacturability (DFM) in mind. In fact, our technical experts go to work to help assure that the silicone component of the new product will succeed in the molding process, before we even issue our response to a Request for Quote.

Our technical team includes engineers, chemists, and technicians who fully understand the intricacies of medical silicone molding and the stringent requirements of the medical device industry and the FDA.

By evaluating the part design and its critical properties upfront, we can often help our clients realize significant cost savings in production and final assembly utilizing proven design for manufacturability techniques.
