Accelerate the Medical
Device Design Process

Medical device manufacturers need to accelerate the development of innovative, high-quality products that are straightforward for medical professionals and patients to use safely and that fully comply with all relevant government regulations.

Solid Edge provides powerful and easy-to-use solutions for medical device design that help meet these needs. Using Solid Edge, regardless of your size as a medical device manufacturer, you can improve your design and development processes and deliver high-quality products on time, enabling you to increase your cash flow and profit margins.


The Solid Edge Advantage

Solid Edge can speed medical device design and help your company flourish in the demanding medical device manufacturing business environment, allowing you to:

  • Digitalize engineering processes. Digitalize your entire product development process and transform your business. Streamline engineering processes with 3D digital models. Add intelligence to 3D models throughout the product development lifecycle.
  • Improve productivity with next-generation design. Make digital representations of existing designs with reverse engineering. Use assembly modeling to manage large assemblies, up to 100,000 parts. Optimize products with generative design.
  • Speed mechanical design with 3D CAD. Use a history-free approach to 3D CAD with synchronous technology. Design complex parts and assemblies quickly and flexibly. Work directly with design geometry and make changes instantly.
  • Visualize design intent. Create photorealistic images and animations of proposed products with 3D rendering. Communicate the value of new products to potential customers. Validate design in real-world settings using augmented reality.
  • Integrate electromechanical design efforts. Create fully functional and manufacturable designs using industry-proven wiring and harness design capabilities. Enable seamless ECAD-MCAD collaboration for electrical and mechanical engineers.
  • Prepare design for 3D printing. Create products using the latest additive manufacturing and 3D printing techniques, with support for an end-to-end workflow.
  • Effortlessly create sheet metal models. Create 3D sheet metal models from 2D sketches. Use unique functions, such as enhanced lofted flanges and bend bulge relief, to build complex models.
  • Meet customer and regulatory requirements. Manage customer and regulatory requirements using requirements management. Make requirements easily visible to design engineers, and track fulfillment of these requirements.
  • Enable paperless 3D documentation. Communicate more effectively and reduce manufacturing costs using annotated 3D models rather than 2D drawings with model-based definition. Spend less time on documentation.
  • Validate and improve product performance. Validate and improve performance of products with scalable simulation tools that use virtual prototyping and new integrated motion and vibration simulation. Communicate your digital design documentation globally with XLIFF language translation.
  • Collaborate on PCB design. Use industry-leading schematic capture and PCB layout tools to avoid costly redesign. Enable real-time collaboration between ECAD-MCAD teams to overcome electromechanical challenges.
  • Share product data over the cloud. Cloud-based collaboration offers a secure way to share product information regardless of origin.
  • Manage data, easily and securely. Search, manage and share product data efficiently and securely with scalable data management solutions. Meet the needs of all manufacturers with built-in data management and Teamcenter integration.

With 3D CAD, electrical design, simulation, manufacturing and data management capabilities, Solid Edge provides an integrated portfolio of affordable and easy-to-use solutions that help medical device manufacturing companies design better.

How Solid Edge can help you increase Profitability in Medical Devices Design

Managing customer requirements & reduce business risk by proposing practical solutions which are predictable and competitive
Speed mechanical 3D design and 2D drawings and increase reuse Deliver sooner which lower business risk, grow revenue at higher margin
Solid Edge provides easy to use frame and weldment designs to get them done faster. But it is more than just about the design, how safe is the design and how long with it last under the great pressures and use on the farm. Solid Edge Simulation with the power of Femap built in, you can know that your design is going to work, long before you start cutting or welding any material.
You benefit from this by improving your margins by optimizing your structures while minimizing your material and manufacturing cost.
Integrated electrical and mechanical design for producing correct cable lengths and accurately predict system performance,accurate bills-of-materials and cut lists.
Streamlined sheet metal design and manufacturing which reduces cost and speeds delivery
Prebuild testing and prototyping helps by doing Significant drop in costs and time-to-delivery as engineers identify and resolve problems before manufacture
Visualise new products for sales and marketing to clearly demonstrate new innovations and use of latest design technology
