We delivered the prototype parts to our customer to evaluate and perform the necessary distribution simulation testing. This testing protocol requires medical device manufacturers to test device packaging for shipping and distribution hazards that could affect the package integrity, specifically, drop testing and vibration testing.
The customer tested trays made of various densities of cross-linked polyethylene foam and the results indicated that an 8 lb. /cubic foot material performed best. The tray and pump also fared well in the drop and vibration testing. Based on these test results, our customer ordered the production tooling needed to mass produce the molded foam trays.
