By MPO Staff | 11.12.18

Miniaturization solutions through micro injection molding and thermoplastics.

The editorial team members of Medical Product Outsourcing and Orthopedic Design & Technology reached out to representatives at several companies exhibiting at Medica/Compamed this year in case you are unable to see them at the event or are not headed to Germany this year. Hopefully, the following questions we served up to Aaron Johnson, VP marketing at Accumold, will offer you some additional insight to determine if the company is a potential services partner for you.
MPO: What technology or service are you emphasizing at Medica this year?
Aaron Johnson: Micro injection molding and thermoplastics.
MPO: What’s the most common challenge customers inquire about and how do you address it?
Johnson: We help customers do more in the same space or do more in less space. Miniaturization of medical devices can be challenging and we provide capability to assist in the process.
MPO: If you could give one piece of advice to companies seeking a manufacturing partner before they make a decision, what would it be?
Johnson: Capability will start the conversation but ensure any supplier has the scalability and sustainability to meet your long-term goals.
MPO: What are the forces driving medical device manufacturers to seek your technology/services over doing it in-house?
Johnson: There is a steep learning curve to micro injection molding. It’s not just large molding made smaller. We have over 30 years of experience when it comes to pushing the limits with micro plastics.
MPO: In what ways is your company able to aid in getting a product (project) to market faster?
Johnson: Accumold has prided itself on working at the speed of the customer. We have organized our operations to provide high quality output with fast turn-arounds. We have a very large tool room dedicated to the shortest lead times possible.
Accumold is located at Medica/Compamed in Hall 8B, Booth/Stand G21.
