As you identify the challenging component and sub-assembly requirements for your medical device, there's one name to know: TE Connectivity. Our vast capabilities and proven strength in design and development engineering will take your project from concept to production. Rely on TE to provide innovative solutions through our core technical competencies: wire & cable; custom connectors; heat-shrink tubing; medical molding; and precision mechanical stamping.
The TE advantage continues with our strength in design engineering. With engineers located throughout the world, we are a global design powerhouse. In addition, we combine our expertise in environmental challenges, mechanical stresses, electrical requirements and design control to provide you the overall performance and reliability you require.
At TE, our manufacturing capabilities are vast. We coordinate IQ/OQ/PQ requirements with expertise in material process controls and process development validation to deliver cost-efficient manufacturing for your project. After first article approval, we can quickly ramp into full production in response to your urgent time-to-market needs. Additionally, with our truly global manufacturing footprint, including three priority sites with ISO 13485 certifications, TE can leverage procurement, volume manufacturing, and distribution to your advantage.
Flexible manufacturing allows TE to handle low to high-volume production requirements, as well as a very high range of product and sub-assembly complexity. We understand that safety and effectiveness are critical to the success of your next-generation medical device, therefore our production processes utilize online documentation, process validation and closed-loop process controls.
At TE, our in-house labs perform electrical, mechanical, and environmental testing to qualify and validate designs and to monitor product processes. We test for reliability and performance to your specifications, as well as compliance with identified regulatory and end-user requirements.
