The development in the field of medical device injection molding makes sense to different manufacturers: for example, it can be a transition from the manufacture of auto parts or a new type of cutting-edge industries, but at a time when the current recession is difficult to recover quickly Absolutely not. Medical equipment manufacturers will tell you: to join the medical equipment forming industry needs time, financial resources, energy and so on. started its career in the field of cleanroom medical device manufacturing a few years ago. Richard, the vice president of marketing, said: 'The medical forming industry will provide you with many sustainable businesses, but at the same time There are a number of hurdles that many injection molders do not understand, lots of upfront investment and preparation such as long product development cycles and many clinical trials, and the ISO standard can also hinder long-term product development.

Richard German said.
The second criterion to pass is: Have a good production record. 'In addition to financial stability, suppliers are most concerned about the production history of mold injection molding companies,' said Ryan, president of Czuba Enterprises. 'If you have not done a similar job before, it is hard to convince other companies to provide you with this medical accessory Contract. 'Perhaps the automotive part molding experience may help, but not as much as you think, because it's not as strict as the medical industry's standards.
