This versatile system uses proven and trust-worthy algorithms with automated, pre-set screening parameters that have been successfully used in millions of screenings.

The panel will walk through the development processes covering:

– Concept evolution and industrial design using SolidWorks

– Applying good plastics design practices to CAD modeling

– Progressing from CAD design models to rapid prototypes to mold design and construction

– Timeline economies and creative application of functional rapid prototypes including mechanical testing

– Anticipating and minimizing the impact of design changes

– Progressing through manufacturing process development to finished assemblies

Ken Pawlak is a plastics expert with over 35 yrs of medical product device design & development experience.  Ken’s creativity has delivered numerous industry changing products to the market place.
