Biomed Devices Depend on Flex
Mass Design has been manufacturing flexible circuit boards for medical technology companies such as Siemens, Nova Biomedical, GE Healthcare, Tyco Baxter, and others for over a decade. "Demand for our flexible circuit boards continues to grow; we see record growth of 18% from the medical electronics sector – diagnostic and monitoring equipment, surgical tools and both implantable and non-implantable medical devices," Bill Gately, sales manager, Mass Design. Gately (l) and James Mahoney, applications engineer, Mass Design's Flex and Rigid/Flex Division at the MDM Biomed Device show, Boston.
Integrated Manufacturing Benefits
"At the prototype level, it takes a lot of communication to get a printed circuit board up and running. That's where integrated manufacturing comes in. We get everyone talking to each other - from engineering and design through testing, we solve problems before going into production."
