The prototypes of medical equipment is very common to us. The development of various medical equipment requires the production of prototypes in order to test the performance and defects of various data, determine whether the design is feasible, and to correct the flaws.
It is necessary to comprehensively and comprehensively be familiar with the preparation of the medical prototype and the requirements during the production process and the follow-up quality inspection.
RpProto has specialised in the prototype industry for decades. It has a wealth of medical equipment prototype processing experience, advanced equipment, and experienced engineering team that can make your high-quality prototypes.
Prototype Development Stage
While establishing the key details, through the verification of concept prototype, fully understand the design intent.
Allow designers to share their concepts with colleagues, customers to obtain effective feedback.
Test design iterations and improve the performance of medical devices, so that problems can be discovered and corrected before mass production, reducing commercial risks.
Making an engineering prototype that matches the final product can make it easier to verify design, engineering, and manufacturability before investing in expensive tools and putting it into production.
Rapid tooling and customized low-volume production will be able to bridge the gap between prototype and production, and enable your products to enter the market faster at a reasonable price.
The final product contains all the design modifications of the previous prototype and is ready to be put on the market.

Options of Making Medical Prototypes
RpProto offers the process of medical prototype development, including CNC machining, 3D printing, Vacuum casting (urethane casting) , Rapid Injection Molding and Sheet Metal Fabrication to meet all your needs quickly and accurately.
From the 3-axis CNC machining to the 5-axis precision machining, we can quickly process plastics and metals medical parts efficiently and at low cost.
You can use vacuum casting for initial product launches, market research and customer feedback, as well as early delivery of medical equipment.
3D printing can quickly produce a single part, and accurately produce the shape and size of the required part, which is very useful for the early evaluation of new medical parts.
Rapid injection molding can provide molded parts to meet your needs for manufacturability analysis, engineering testing, clinical evaluation, investor demonstration or production preparation in the later stages of medical and health product development.

Common Materials for Medical prototypes
|PEEK & PEI|
PEEK is resistant to repeated high-pressure sterilization, and can be used to manufacture endoscope parts and dental detergents in medical equipment.
Because PEEK has good compatibility with the human body, it has successfully replaced traditional titanium as an artificial bone material.
|Medical Grade Silicone|
Medical-grade silicone can safely come into contact with living tissues.
Because of its flexibility, heat resistance, low toxicity and chemical reactivity, it is used in many medical devices, such as bandages, feeding tubes and medical implants. It can also be used for other products in close contact with the user.
|Nylon & ABS|
Medical ABS plastic has certain rigidity, hardness, impact resistance and chemical resistance.
Mainly used as surgical tools, roller clamps, plastic needles, tool boxes, diagnostic devices and hearing aid shells, especially the shells of some large medical equipment.
Can be 3D printed
|Stainless Steel||18-10 stainless steel, more durable and corrosion-resistant, mainly used in medical equipment manufacturing|
|Titanium Alloy Biomedical|
Titanium alloy used to manufacture medical devices, prostheses or artificial organs and auxiliary treatment equipment implanted in the human body.
They have high specific strength, mechanical properties close to human bone, strength far better than pure titanium, and also have the characteristics of fatigue resistance, corrosion resistance and excellent biocompatibility.
