According to Precedence Research, medical device companies worldwide spent $53.71 billion on contract manufacturing in 2019 – and are expected to spend $97.52 billion annually by 2027. No doubt you're constantly examining your company's development costs, looking for ways to become more efficient.
Underestimating Assembly Costs
It's easy, especially in the planning stages, to underestimate manufacturing and assembly costs. It's natural to focus on the price of the components and assume that's going to be the bulk of your expenses. However,..
While advances in plastic assembly techniques create innovative new products, the process also depends on the operators working efficiently at these stations. Establishing an effective development, test, and production process requires systems that conform to both commercial interests and human physiology.
Considerations for Deploying a Plastic Assembly Line in Your Company
Often overlooked during the product development and design stages, the configuration of plastic assembly stations can have a major impact on your company’s productivity. The long-term effects of working..
Modern medicine has come a long way, and today we have a variety of applications in the medical industry that depend on plastic assemblies. The increasing role that technology plays in providing quality healthcare and automated medicine delivery to patients requires a high-quality plastic assembly process.
Wearable medical devices with integrated displays help physicians monitor and log a patient’s health conditions, sometimes integrating directly with their electronic health records (EHR). In an evolving market, more practitioners now depend on sophisticated electronic products to deliver precise doses of medicine. The

Thermal Press is a leader in plastic assembly and heat sealing solutions. With a range of platforms and configurations available, we will work with your product team for their plastic assembly process development requirements. We can customize our..
Advances in technology have opened new vistas for medical devices and fluid delivery systems. These solutions integrate with human biology to deliver medicine or extract fluids safely and hygienically. Heat sealing plastics made these innovations possible by providing hermetically sealed plastic delivery systems that remain safe to the wearer.
In situations where ultrasonic welding isn’t suitable, heat sealing provides a method to overcome challenges by creating a secure bond between thermoplastics using precise heat and pressure. Although the applications for these types of seals vary, the market continues to grow..
The recent focus on medical devices and their capabilities reinforces the importance of streamlined manufacturing techniques. With Thermal Press plastic assembly equipment, you can create any type of medical device that can help improve an agency’s ability to provide care and data for health improvement and management.
The medical device market was set to grow by 1.7% and manufacturing could reach $45.3 billion in the United States this year. With new focus and additional stock required, keeping your facility’s manufacturing capabilities in tune with demand just..
This year started with a renewed focus on how to keep populations safe and healthy around the world. From working at home to enabling self-care for patients, the market outlook for wearable injector devices continues to grow every year. The forecasts suggest that the wearable injector device market in 2020 will increase by nearly 11% CAGR until 2024.
In our previous update, we noted that device manufacturers should focus on making wearable injectors flexible, affordable, and comfortable. These functional considerations still apply, but new developments in the..
The capabilities of the Internet of things (IoT) has matured over the last few years. In the medical sciences, connected devices now even have their own term, called the internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Developments in the industry also led to new concerns and considerations for designers and manufacturers.
In our previous blog post about the future of plastic assembly for IoT medical devices, we highlighted the potential these technologies could offer humanity. In the meantime, manufacturers have been busy designing new solutions for improved patient care, monitoring, and diagnostics...
Between space and medicine, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more regulated industry. This makes sense as these industries contain many of the same dangers. In space, vacuum tight seals are important for survival.
In medical devices, having precisely measured seals can also mean life and death, so regulations are just as stringent. The many different applications of heat seals in the industry (such as ports & plates) require the highest standard of equipment manufacturing to deliver consistent, validated results.
Data drives almost every facet of modern life, and its influence is growing.
This is especially true in the world of medical device manufacture, where the ideas behind the Internet of Things (IoT) have particularly useful applications.
Manufacturers and product designers in the medical equipment industry have more opportunities than ever to create life-saving products using scalable, affordable processes.
Investing in the latest plastic assembly for IoT medical devices and technologies can create significant value for manufacturers who adopt the right approach.
