July 2020

Speed has been vital in the battle against Covid-19 – as electronics manufacturers scrambling to expand production of lifesaving ventilators and other essential medical devices know only too well. The coronavirus pandemic has confronted manufacturers with a brutal reality: every day of delay can be the difference between life and death for the coronavirus patients who are most vulnerable.

But prototyping any new medical product is seldom quick, even in normal times. The medical electronics market sets the bar high in terms of quality. Even just creating the bespoke plastic enclosure for your device can take months. There are many hurdles to overcome: designing the housing…prototyping the tooling…the big upfront investment needed.

You need to be manufacturing a product in the thousands to consider embarking on such an undertaking. Meanwhile, time is slipping away and lives are at greater risk. Surely, there must be a better way? Fortunately, there is…

Customizing a standard plastic electronic enclosure for your medical device gives you the best of all worlds:

  • you get a high quality enclosure – a tried and tested design
  • it will be supplied quickly, at a sensible price and in low volumes if need be
  • your product will always look unique – no one need ever know that its enclosure was ‘off the shelf’.

Choose The Right Enclosures Partner

It pays to choose a specialist enclosures manufacturer who offers a wide range of customizable cases. These housings must be molded from high quality plastics that are robust, UV stable and easy to clean and sterilize. After all, they must be capable of surviving years of punishing daily life in a hospital, surgery or care home – without showing signs of wear.

It always pays to partner with a specialist manufacturer of enclosures on any electronics project. This is especially true for the medical sector because it requires such high levels of quality.

An experienced enclosures manufacturer with a strong track record in the medical sector will be best placed to complete critical projects within the strict time pressures created by the pandemic.

The wider the range of standard enclosures your chosen manufacturer offers, the more likely you are to find one that they can transform into your perfect housing with the minimum amount of customization. Choose a single source specialist who can do it all in-house – saving you time, money and administration worries.
