This technical presentation debunks the myths and theories around design limitations of miniaturized devices. Perceived biases exist during design and CAD modelling that place limits on geometry, size, and feature size regarding high-volume medical and drug delivery miniaturized device designs such as:
The outputs to high volume, miniaturized device designs are:
With these rewards come risks and challenges that are rarely extrapolated by previous learnings of conventional or macro methods of manufacturing. This technical presentation explores high volume proven processes of scaling multi-cavity tooling to multiple component assemblies, reducing to practice the basic principles of miniaturized device success backed up with empirical and scientifically analyzed data. An understanding of component and automated assembly stack-up tolerances for each component is a baseline of success but not enough. Each component must be scrutinized and “process mapped on steroids” to prevent late and very costly development and clinical trial failures.
