Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical experts are hosting a free-to-attend webinar on September 14 to introduce the Rapid Development Center and demonstrate how you can use this unique service to optimize time-to-market and the end product.
Bringing Your Products to Market Faster
Chris Tellers, Director of the Rapid Development Center, says: “Working with our customers early in the product development cycle enables us to help them save time, reduce costs, and produce higher-quality parts; all while keeping in mind the long-term goal of serial production. Employing Design for Manufacturing (DfM) principles, ensures processes that are efficient and cost-effective in high volumes, helping to alleviate the eighty to ninety percent of manufacturing costs that are usually designed into a product.
“Because we focus on rapid development and not just prototyping, we’ll have conversations with the customer so we can deliver a product with superior performance and quality. The Rapid Development Center is a relational environment as opposed to a transactional one, where we take a consultative approach to help customers discover what they need and how it can be realized.”
