Waltonen Medical Industry


From small hand held apparatuses in the doctor's office to major analytical machines in hospitals, the medical device market is expanding at accelerated rates. By applying our knowledge and experience in low, medium and high volume manufacturing, Waltonen is partnering with medical device makers to lower costs, increase output and cut product developing cycles for all of their equipment.

There is no denying that the demand for new and innovative products is high in the Medical field. From analytical devices, maintaining medical records, and devices to assist the medical professionals, manufacturers are supporting the demand for the health care systems. To keep up with the demand for innovative new products, the medical device market has to develop products that accelerated paces unheard of just a few years ago. Waltonen is there to help.

Waltonen is the right partner when it comes to developing and manufacturing of these products and systems. Utilizing our many simulation and analysis tools, our multi industry proven processes and highly trained and skilled work force we are able to identify and solve many production issues virtually while still in the design and planning stages and well before they ever happen on the plant floor or in the field during usage. Waltonen is able to develop, design, and manufacture medical devices virtually in the 3D CAD arena without ever cutting a piece of steel or plastic. By incorporating the product lifecycle in the 3D CAD environment, Medical device makers are proving out designs, modifying current designs, laying out manufacturing assembly plants and delivering products in reduced time, and lower costs.

The ability to get in on the ground floor of the product development allows Waltonen to add value to your product development cycle from a vary early stage. We carry that value all the way to the plant floor in production by helping to develop world class lean, robust, efficient and high quality manufacturing systems for our clients. From the beginning to end of your project, Waltonen has the passion, commitment, ability and tools to help you be successful.
