Surgical Device Components
Application: Medical Clip
Problem: Customer creating a new surgical product asked our Economy Spring location to review the design of a mission-critical component and provide a quote.
The MWI Solution:
- Engineering & tooling teams came together to discuss the design
- Calculated that a gap would form in the center of the clip under certain conditions
- Gave feedback on the geometry of the product that would improve vessel closure
- Worked with the customer to revise the component design and provided a quote for the new design
Utilizing 40+ years of experience in clip/staple manufacturing, we were able to spot what was potentially a life-threatening design flaw. Our customer was extremely satisfied and is now able to provide a reliable clip for their end user that closes completely around the vessel or artery and prevents the escape of blood during surgery.
