Medical device manufacturing is Mina Product Development's bread and butter. The Southern California rapid prototyping specialists started out building casting housings for medical products.

"Now we are a full service design, engineering, rapid prototyping and manufacturing partner for new and established brands," said CEO Babek Khamenian.

"We've been working on some exciting projects and are proud to attend the Medical Device and Manufacturing West show in Anaheim, CA this year to showcase our recent work and network with new partners," said Khamenian.

Mina Product Development has recently worked on projects like Bard Biopsy System's EnCor Enspire® Breast Biopsy System, a minimally invasive vacuum assisted needle biopsy tool used by surgeons to take a tissue sample of a patients tumor to screen for cancer. Mina Product Development designed all of the initial prototypes and the pilot production units for the housing.

Mina has over 26 years of experience working with medical partners needing components for various medical parts. Mina has collaborated with companies like Phillips Ultrasound, Advance Interventional Systems, and Abbot Medical Optics to help bring products to life.

Mina starts it's clients off with a 3-D printed prototype to get a basic model to see, touch and test. Then the model is duplicated with silicone molds. Once the silicone molds are made, clients are able to get as few as one sample or as many as a few hundred before they send off for final tooling. This saves Mina's clients money as changes at this phase are still financially feasible.

Mina Product Development has designed and manufactured medical equipment, aerosol actuators, golf clubs, cell phone cases, water bottles, military hardware, wearable technology, and party glasses among others. "We're incredibly excited to meet new partners at MDM and see where 2014 takes us," said Khamenian.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
