One of the key challenges facing medical device manufacturers is determining the optimum mix of mold cavities and machines. High cavity molds enable medical manufacturers to tap economies of scale when fabricating high volume single-use products by reducing the number of machines needed to achieve required production volumes. However, increasing the number of cavities also can increase the project complexity. Forefront Medical Technology recently designed a 64-cavity mold for a customer. This case study looks at the challenges and lessons learned in the project.
