Selecting the correct plastic material for medical device packaging is critical for ensuring a successful finished part. Each material has different characteristics, properties, and strengths that are ideal for different applications. Therefore, many factors can influence material selection ranging from performance to appearance to cost. By investigating project parameters and requirements, Brentwood’s team can help choose the best, most cost-effective material to meet packaging goals and regulations.
A customer came to Brentwood for updated packaging for their heart bypass machine kit. The original tray had numerous issues, which resulted in very high manufacturing and labor costs. The customer wanted a better packaging design that lowered costs. Our engineers got to work to solve the main design issues to meet the customer’s goal.
One of Brentwood’s customers came to us, looking for an alternative packaging solution for their bone marrow collection kit. The pouches they were using caused numerous challenges in surgical settings: the 15 pieces in the kit essentially had to be dumped out of the pouch, resulting in disorganization, and sometimes, enabling the components to fall off the tray.
