Summary

Summary: 
Dutch company active in the development and marketing of machinery for medical device companies and tissue banks offers machinery and technology which optimizes the processing of soft (e.g. biopolymer fleeces, human tissues) and hard materials (e.g. bone grafts). Core competence is to develop customized equipment suitable for clean rooms. Cooperation could be either in the frame of a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a technical cooperation agreement.

Description

Description: 

The Dutch company offers process improvements for medical device manufacturers to process soft materials (e.g. biopolymer fleeces, human tissues) and hard materials (e.g. bone grafts).

A range of standard equipment is available but the core competence is to develop customized equipment based on the customer’s input and regulatory requirements.

With their expertise in medical devices and engineering they can design, develop and build equipment which can improve the manufacturing process by decreasing processing time, increase yield and decrease waste.

Cooperation could be either in the frame of a commercial agreement with technical assistance in case partners want to include new medical devices in the current manufacturing process or in the frame of a technical cooperation agreement in case the partners wish to improve the efficiency by implementing process improvements in their current manufacturing process.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
Clean room manufacturing of medical devices requires knowledge of medical devices and engineering. The company combined these two to offer medical device manufacturers process improvements. With the experience of medical devices and combination-products the SME can set up processes for new medical devices or improve the current manufacturing process to increase efficiency. Unique about the approach is: - The use of pneumatic based devices suitable for clean room manufacturing - Compact design to minimize foot print - Disposable and reusable options for dies - Customizable design which is suitable for hard and soft materials They offer equipment which is qualified to be used in a clean room manufacturing environment with the following advantages: - 100% testing of materials to ensure the equipment can withstand cleaning and sterilization - Efficient design to minimize footprint - Customized design to be suitable for specific manufacturing processes - Knowledge of regulation of machinery and medical devices to ensure compliance with regulatory - Suitable for processing of various types of materials such as biopolymer fleeces and human tissue material
