Medical Device Designers Avoid the Pitfalls of Outsourcing Medical Tubing
Date:3/10/2010

Medical Device Designers avoid delays and extra costs by partnering with a highly specialized medical tubing manufacturer

(PRWEB) March 10, 2010 -- There’s a stiff price to pay for those who choose not to consult with a knowledgeable medical tubing supplier. Unless certain steps are taken to ensure that designs and specifications are accurate, the potential consequences include: exceeded R&D budgets, exorbitant production costs, delay of FDA approval, slowed speed to market, and a great deal of frustration.

However, by qualifying and partnering with a metal tubing supplier, most of the pitfalls that cause such problems can be identified and avoided.

Here are the top three pitfalls to avoid when outsourcing metal tubing for medical devices:

TOLERANCE ISSUES
“Many engineers look at tolerances in terms of the upper and lower extremes—they don’t take tolerance stacking, effects of secondary operations, or ID clearance issues into account. If these items are not specified properly and prototype runs are ordered, the engineer loses monetary investment, plus time, which translates into missed product release deadlines, or even worse…recalls,” says Lance Heft, CEO of International Tube, a major supplier of medical tubing to the medical device industry. “These are critical factors that can happen in production runs. We bring those types of questions up in the initial meeting with a customer to ensure engineers get what they want in their initial prototype run.”

UNDER OR OVER-ESTIMATING REQUIREMENTS
Prospective vendors should be qualified according to their experience
