From Conceptual Design to Commercialization
Whether you have a napkin sketch or a detailed CAD drawing, Natech’s design and engineering team brings your product idea to life.
Novel medical devices require innovative and novel design solutions. Natech engineers work with clients to design and manufacture their medical products. Our team considers the entire product and application when beginning design for manufacturing & assembly (DFMA).
By utilizing our design process, your product can easily transition from product development to next-generation designs as your project scales.
- Conceptual and Preliminary Product Design
- Design for Manufacturing
- Design for Assembly
- MoldFlow Simulation
- Process Optimization
Products are designed for quality and optimal performance. This means a quick and smooth transition from design to manufacturing and final product for you.
Expert Product Design
Conceptual & Preliminary Design
Customers come to Natech with everything from a napkin sketch to a robust CAD model every day. Our team thrives on guiding clients through the design process and overcoming complex part, material and aesthetic concerns.
Our ability to quickly move from conceptual to final design means a more reliable, higher quality and lower risk product for you.
Design for Manufacturing & Assembly
Our team considers the entire product and application when beginning design for manufacturing & assembly (DFMA).
By incorporating the product’s end use, part functionality, and how it interfaces with other parts or end users, our DFMA gives you confidence that your final design will transition smoothly into manufacture and assembly.
Dedicated Engineering Support
We have developed an intense engineer development program based upon the principles of Quality by Design with a focus on design for manufacturability and design for assembly. Our engineering teams gives clients unparalleled support for their project, regardless of where they are in their development.
When you come to Natech, you are assigned to a project engineer for your program. Using our custom project management approach, they work collaboratively with your team to manage the schedule, communicate risks and changes and stay on target and on budget.
There is no time to waste when launching a new product, and our team is here to ensure an optimal transition into production. That means optimizing the process during design. Our engineers use MoldFlow analysis, automation
potential and scientific processing to optimize your part production from day one.
Natech engineers incorporate quality into your product during the design for manufacturing phase. Our in-house DFM expertise and quality engineering team plan ahead to reduce lead times, reduce risks and increase the quality of your final product.
The Natech engineers utilize a scientific approach to process validation. This approach reduces risk in the designing, processing and inspecting of the manufacturing process. Scientific validation allows engineers to achieve control of the process and deliver faster and more reliable end results.
