It’s not only our job to be plugged into the SolidWorks community and to have our finger on the pulse of the industry, it’s our passion. SolidWorks provides us with a remarkable software solution to most of our CAD challenges, and we make it our business to offer a hardware solution that enhances your SolidWorks experience.
So, naturally, we were excited to learn that a long-time SolidBox customer was invited to present a breakout session at this year’s SolidWorks World. Ken Pawlak of Natus Medical Inc., as well as four other project team-mates, will be presenting the session called Delivering the Impossible, Great Teamwork Makes Medical Device History. This presentation will chronicle the development of Natus Medical’s next generation infant hearing screener, Echo-Screen III, through the use of SolidWorks Solid Modeling, Engineering, Rapid Prototyping, and Mold Design with Eastman TritanTM CoPolyester to achieve ground breaking product design.
The Echo-Screen III is the first BPA free Pediatric Electronic Medical Device, and was designed completely in SolidWorks. The all new Echo-Screen III hearing screener combines advanced capabilities never before available in a single device. This versatile system uses proven and trusted algorithms with automated, pre-set screening parameters that have been successfully used in millions of screenings
The panel will walk through the development processes covering:
– Concept evolution and industrial design using SolidWorks
– Applying good plastics design practices to CAD modeling
– Progressing from CAD design models to rapid prototypes to mold design and construction
– Timeline economies and creative application of functional rapid prototypes including mechanical testing
– Anticipating and minimizing the impact of design changes
– Progressing through manufacturing process development to finished assemblies
Ken Pawlak is a plastics expert with over 35 yrs of medical product device design & development experience. Ken’s creativity has delivered numerous industry changing products to the market place. We’re proud to call Ken a SolidBox customer and family member, and the whole SolidBox team is excited about this presentation.
Delivering the Impossible, Great Teamwork Makes Medical Device History is currently scheduled for 1 pm on Tuesday, February 10th, but all SolidWorks World events are subject to change, so check your official SolidWorks World calender as the event nears.
