Capabilities

R&D Engineering offers a wide range of custom-made equipment to support your overall catheter manufacturing needs. We aspire to make products that work for you and not against you and produce them within your desired timeline. To do this, we utilize a strategic process to develop and manufacture products using qualified design engineers, validation processes, automation and unique fabrication and machining techniques.

Our capabilities are intertwined into all of our Cath-Tech family of products and are designed to out-perform and outlast any current competitor’s equipment. We know and understand the intricacies and details needed to produce quality products, that’s why we use quality parts and systems from reputable vendors to guarantee your full satisfaction.

Our expert team of design engineers have been in the machine business for many years, and have the necessary experience to create a wide range of machines, even from the simplest drawing to the more complex CAD drawing. From there, we can turn those designs, into fully functional and operating machines. Our Design Engineers utilize a path to process development, CAD products, and tooling capacities to create products that are designed to your specifications.

PROCESS DEVELOPMENT

In many cases, our customers have asked us to help create a process utilizes our expertise to take parts they have and figure out the equipment and the best approach needed to assemble these parts into a logical sequence. They may only have a few pieces of the puzzle, this is where we jump in and work with our customers to take a project and fill in the gaps. We want to make our customer’s job easier, while at the same time improving equipment functionality and overall project flow.

CAD (COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN)

We use a number of programs and platforms to design and draw any concept idea to our customer’s specifications, including SolidWorks 2017, AutoCAD LT for DXF and 2D drawings.

TOOLING

We are an experienced tooling shop that is designing and building manufacturing equipment in state-of-the-art facilities. From replacement components and fixtures to manufactured assemblies, we operate using CNC milling, turning, and screw machining technologies in all of our manufacturing processes.

Automation helps to drive process efficiency, enables quality control and lowers operating costs. As we work with clients to understand their manufacturing challenges. R&D Engineers considers ways to automate certain processes and make them easier. To do this, we use automation controls, systems and designs to ease the manufacturing process. Our mission is to use these capabilities to automate equipment that is engineered to your needs. If your need is for new equipment, old equipment or just want to change a specific in-house process, we’ll work with you to see how automation can be a viable solution.

INTEGRATION

integration

We’ll work with your team to ensure that any automation process implemented fits with your current manufacturing systems, so as not to skip a beat in your manufacturing process.

CONTROLS

test

Working with key suppliers, ensures the controls implemented in your process provide value and operator ease. Our engineers have experience with a variety of programs and vendors to apply to your project.

VISION

vision

We use Cognex, PPT and Keyance Vision Systems to inspect, measure and collect the necessary data within your system. Additionally, we can implement barcode readers to scan work orders, and load project parameters.

PROGRAMMING

programming

We use programming languages including: Vision, PLC, Robotic, Servo and Stepper.

ROBOTICS

robotics

We program Denso, Adept, Fanuc and Kuka and other various robot brands.

COMPLIANCE / DATA-LOGGING

compliance

We put systems in place, where data acquisition is made easier and can be compatible with Excel and other Windows based programs.

ASSEMBLY

compliance

Our machine shops have the ability to fabricate short and medium-sized run assemblies. This allows us to be your go-to source of short production-run orders with minimal lead times. Our internal expertise coupled with a mature supply chain allows us to satisfy project requirements. We do this by using the most effective tools to reduce waste, increase results, and achieve the highest level of quality control.

No matter the project size, R&D Engineering is ready to support your manufacturing needs. We understand our customer’s desire for quality, and the ability to deliver within a specific budget and timeline. Our team seeks to offer the best custom metal fabrication and CNC machining services within the OEM and medical device industries.

  • Tsugami BS19 Swiss turn with LNS super hydrobar, bar feed.

MATERIALS

We are dedicated to meeting your material needs and we’ll work with you to select the proper materials for your component or project, and utilize the special in-house machining techniques to enhance and complete your parts and/or products.

  • Aluminum
  • Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Brass
  • Titanium
  • Plastics and Exotic Plastics

 

Whenever machinery is involved in a development process, Validation is a mandatory requirement to ensure the quality, safety, and efficacy of the product in development. It helps to minimize the inherent risks and integrity of any predicated data, relating to that product. Equipment that executes any process that can or could change, damage or obscure the quality, efficacy or manufacturing records of a regulatory controlled product, must be qualified by being validated.

Our engineers are familiar with this validation process and are at your disposal to ensure your products accomplishes its end goals. They will work alongside you through an iterative process to develop a system that functions according to your desired requirements and needs.

TESTING

controls

We test machines using your parts and feedback. From there, we create specific processes to improve production and additional processes as needed.

OP / PQ

opq'

Tasks in the OQ/PQ phase provide essential proofs and reporting to confirm the specific results needing to be achieved by a specific machine. Essentially, it is going to do what is was designed and meant to do. Our team will work through this and ensure top results.
