In the fall of 2013, Triangle was engaged by an existing client to develop and launch a highly complex, multi-component assembly. One of the world’s premier medical technology and services companies needed multiple, tight tolerance parts for a powered surgical tool used in ear, nose and throat procedures
There was no margin for error; the assembly housing and parts had to meet incredibly difficult specifications within .0001 of an inch, less than the thickness of a strand of hair or sheet of paper.
The Triangle team not only took on the manufacturing challenge, but also advised the client on how to improve the design. Triangle reviewed the drawings, experimented with alternatives, created 3D geometric models and tested the various approaches.
This collaborative design process with Triangle resulted in a product that was less expensive, easier to manufacture and higher quality than the first version.
