Biomerics, a leading contract manufacturer and innovative polymer solutions provider for the medical device industry, announced the launch of its proprietary Rapid-Adapt injection molding tool system.

"We are very proud of the Rapid-Adapt system — we’ve been working on it for the last two years and we’re excited to see it launch," stated Dan Brittingham, VP of Engineering at Biomerics.

"The Rapid-Adapt system enables us to provide fast, low-cost tooling solutions for vertically overmolded ISO 594 luers, ‘Y/T’ connectors, and junctions, as well as horizontally molded custom components and inserts. Ultimately, the Rapid-Adapt system allows us to better support our customers and help them get their products to market more efficiently."

The Rapid-Adapt system is a proprietary injection molding tooling solution that utilizes a custom base and cavity design to enable tool standardization of catheters and medical components. The tooling system is available in 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 cavity drops, and can be applied to prototype manufacturing, bridge tooling, and/or full scale production.

The system allows for fast cavity exchange without the removal of the base from the molding press. By stocking standard inserts, Biomerics can turn around new designs for its customers in as little as 2-3 weeks.

"As an FDA registered facility and an ISO-13485 certified manufacturer, we produce devices that must adhere to the requirements laid out under current good manufacturing practices (cGMP)," remarked Mike Anderson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Biomerics.

Biomerics specializes in the design, development, and production of finished medical devices used in diagnostic and interventional procedures.
