What if you could talk to one person to help you with your prototype tooling needs and give you suggestions on how to make your design more efficient and cost effective? What if that same person would coordinate your project all the way to launch including ideas to lower your supply chain costs?

At NPI/Medical, we understand the need to accelerate the product launch and feel the frustration our customers have when they need to speak to multiple engineers, project managers and tooling designers as they go through each phase of the prototype tooling process. Our customers tell us they often have to “re-educate” as many as five or 10 different people at multiple tooling suppliers, wasting critical time. Our solution is simple: expand our prototype tool offerings so we can now can offer you parts in as little as seven days or “validatable” parts in an ISO 13485 clean room in four weeks.

We are pleased to announce a collaboration with Proto Labs that will allow us to do this. This new offering will become part of our DynaClass® Tooling offerings. DynaClass was created in 2012 as a way to simplify the tooling process and provide options for NPI/Medical’s customers.

“Prototype tooling means different things to different people,” said NPI/Medical President David Kelly. “Our DynaClass system clarifies it by breaking tooling down into classifications based on mold life, mold base and other key criteria. By adding the Proto Labs offering to our DynaClass® 5 program, we can deliver low- to moderate-cost parts in seven days or validatable parts in a steel tool in three to four weeks.”

Stop wasting time dealing with multiple prototype tooling suppliers. NPI/Medical can guide you through the process toward a successful launch.
