Rapid Manufacturing of Medical Device Prototypes on Demand
Do you have a question about your medical device design and aren’t sure how to solve it? Are you looking for a rapid manufacturer to work with you to develop prototypes of medical devices? Even if you don’t have a detailed plan and only a rough idea, you are in the right place for a prototype consultation. It is a wise choice to use AN-Prototype rapid manufacturing solution to support your medical device prototype.
Why Make a Medical Device Prototype
As a rapid health device manufacturer, we certainly understand that medical device prototyping is an important foundation of the medical product design and development process. Prototyping is a critical step in the time, cost and labor intensive process of launching a new product. The medical device prototyping process produces functional samples from precise design and material specifications for use in product testing and evaluation stages as well as business demonstrations. These prototypes enable designers to verify the efficacy and manufacturability of designs and determine if design changes are required prior to mass production and market distribution.
Why choose AN-Prototype as a medical prototype manufacturer
AN-Prototype provides reliable medical device prototyping and production, from simple to complex medical parts, helping you move from an initial idea to a realistic plan. The detailed medical certification knowledge built into our organization makes it easier for you to gain confidence in compliance later in the product development process. Regardless of part complexity, we can help you achieve your goals through rapid prototyping, bridge tooling, and low-volume manufacturing. Our lean way of working means your prototype will be delivered on time and within budget.
3-axis, 4-axis, 5-axis precision CNC milling, turning, EDM, grinding and drilling and tapping processes, we can quickly manufacture plastic and metal medical parts with high efficiency and low cost.
3D printing can quickly manufacture a single part, perhaps as little as 1 day, and produce exactly the shape and size of the desired part, which is very useful for the early evaluation of new medical parts.
AN-prototype can help you get your initial product released as quickly as possible using vacuum casting for market research and customer feedback as well as early delivery of medical devices.
Medical rapid injection molding can provide molded parts to meet your needs for manufacturability analysis, engineering testing, and mass production preparation in the late stage of medical device development.

AN-Prototype's Medical Device Prototyping Application
Common Materials for Medical prototypes
PEEK & PEI
PEEK is resistant to repeated autoclaving and can be used to manufacture endoscope parts in medical devices. PEEK has good compatibility with the human body, so it has successfully replaced traditional titanium as an artificial bone material.
Medical Grade Silicone
Medical grade silicone is safe for contact with human tissue. Due to its flexibility, heat resistance, and chemical reactivity, it is often used in many medical devices such as bandages, feeding tubes, etc.
Nylon & ABS
Medical ABS plastic has certain rigidity, hardness, impact resistance and chemical resistance, and is mainly used as surgical tools, roller clamps, plastic needles, tool boxes, diagnostic equipment and hearing aid housings, especially the housings of some large medical equipment.
Stainless steel 303, 304, 316 is more durable and corrosion-resistant than other plastics or metals, and is mainly used in the manufacture of medical devices, such as tweezers, medical device handles, etc.
Titanium alloys are characterized by light weight, high strength, fatigue resistance, corrosion resistance and excellent biocompatibility, and are often used in the manufacture of medical devices, prosthetics and auxiliary treatment equipment.
Some of the most common aluminum alloys in medical devices include 6061, 6063, and 3003. Not only are these aluminum alloys strong and corrosion-resistant, but they are also biocompatible and are often used to make oxygen tanks, electrical accessories and more.
