The highly-experienced engineering team, working closely with Cellnovo, assessed the suitability of the existing designs for volume manufacture, and where necessary, helped re-design components.
Unit cost was also a major consideration, and the design team’s understanding of materials, manufacturing processes and medical device regulations ensured the new specifications were optimized for cost, reliability and performance.
Improvements in the manufacturing process for the lead frame and the pinned circuit board immediately led to capacity improvements.
Flex improved the supply chain relationship and years of regulatory experience in manufacturing FDA approved medical devices for the US market was also a huge benefit to Cellnovo.
Partnering with Flex enables Cellnovo to focus on its core competencies: Innovation and the differentiation of its product, and bringing superior value to patients, their families and care teams.
It also means Cellnovo is now capable of delivering a 12-fold increase in the number of insulin cartridges produced per annum. In 2019, a second production line is planned to go live at Flex in Timisoara, Romania, which would dramatically increase Cellnovo’s insulin cartridge production.
Because Flex produces medical devices to the highest international quality standards, Cellnovo’s management team are assured that the production complies with international regulatory and safety standards.
