Hymid is your Perfect Medical Device Development Partner
15th March 2022
Hymid has a rich history of injection moulding medical devices, built on impressive technical moulding abilities and extensive design capabilities. This uniquely positions Hymid to be the perfect partner for developing and manufacturing medical plastic parts.
The constant investment in new technologies to improve these capabilities is how Hymid better serves their medical and healthcare customers.
Hymid is ISO13485 certified
As a testament to its commitment to quality, Hymid has achieved certification in the ISO 13485:2016 quality standard for medical devices. ISO 13485 is specifically tailored to all aspects of Medical Devices including Design and Development, Production, Storage and Distribution, and Servicing. Through extensive design capabilities and injection moulding expertise, Hymid is able to add real value to medical device projects.
Hymid recently underwent a successful re-audit of our production facility, which now includes the latest additions as part of our continuous improvement and investment programme; a Class 7 Cleanroom and a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM). If you would like to read more about these, please follow the link.
Hymid’s design team have an intimate knowledge of the injection moulding process and the materials best suited for medical devices. We understand the importance of medical devices working as intended every time, without exception. Through our Design for Manufacture (DfM) process, we utilise our expertise to help optimise your design and ensure any required features are seamlessly integrated, so your product can be reliably produced during manufacture.
Our design team are often able to suggest small and subtle changes that can drastically improve the reliability, functionality and aesthetics of your product. Examples include hiding unwanted weld lines, improving structural rigidity, optimising the ergonomics, and many more.
Hymid has commissioned a Class 7 Cleanroom
As part of the ongoing investment in our medical device capabilities, we have recently commissioned a Class 7 Cleanroom. The cleanroom contains an Arburg injection moulding machine which is capable of both single and two-shot mouldings, as well as micro-moulding. Hymid’s cleanroom boasts ample space for the production, storage and packing of medical components, whilst maintaining a low particulate environment throughout the process.
Many medical devices do not require a cleanroom for their manufacture, we have the range of facilities, that are not in a specified clean environment, to meet your needs and to serve the medical and healthcare sectors as the partner of choice.
Continued Investment in our Capabilities
Hymid is always looking for ways to better serve our medical customers and indeed all our customers. Alongside our certified Cleanroom, we have invested in a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), which is also ISO 13485 certified. Our CMM enables components to be measured accurately and ensure they are within the required tolerances to meet the exacting standards of the medical and healthcare industry.
