Packaging is often the last thought in a medical device’s development process. Engineers focus on the actual design and functionality of the device itself before thinking about the packaging. Devices need to be protected from physical damage, biological contamination, and other external factors that sacrifice the integrity and sterility of the device.
Thermoforming and injection molding are two of the most common plastic manufacturing processes. Both processes offer different advantages depending on the specific application, part volume, and budget. Read more to learn about the two processes and which one would be best for your application.
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.
