If you're launching, redesigning or replacing a medical product, Crossen Engineering is ready to work alongside you for the entire process. We complete all injection mould tooling and production in-house, so we're ideally placed to take your new product from the drawing board and into full production using medical-grade thermoplastics.
From short-run prototypes to high volume production runs, we efficiently deliver the quantities you need. Always to your exact specification and of consistently high quality.
We engineer everything from the smallest component on a medical device through to large parts for postural support.
Get to market more quickly by completing prototyping, tooling and manufacturing under one roof at our premises outside Belfast, N. Ireland.
We will help you achieve the perfection needed to succeed in the medical sector by providing cost-effective revisions to your prototype until it is doing exactly what you, patients and practitioners need it to do.
People depend on a reliable seal between their stoma wound and bag to avoid leaks and the associated anxieties. Innovative Ostomy product manufacturer TG Eakin tasked us with producing a two-part plastic seal that would avoid leaks but also enhance ease of use. Even the tightest seal is useless if it prevents quick and easy removal of the bag.
Working closely with Eakin’s R&D team, we created aluminium prototype mould tooling for a short-run of a male and female ring to form the seal. Ostomy bag users gave their feedback during trials. We tweaked the design and mould accordingly — fractions of millimetres meant the difference between an embarrassing or frustrating user experience and the complete peace of mind towards which Eakin was working.
After confirmation from the user testing programme that the latest prototype was working as intended, we helped Eakin to transition from the low volume trial process to high volume production. We created new tooling to allow multiple parts to be produced simultaneously, bringing manufacturing costs down to the required price per unit. Our production line operates 24 hours-a-day to meet demand for this part.
As well as forming the seal, the eye-catching purple ring we made in Eakin’s brand colour also serves as a visual guide to help people see where to attach their bag as part of the Eakin Dot two-piece flat system.
We would love to talk to you about your latest designs and the options we can offer for manufacturing it quickly, efficiently and precisely.
