By Alexis Vasquez
At Bessel, we combine expertise in advanced manufacturing with an emphasis on agile teamwork to drive medical device development. That unique combination allows our teams to solve complex technical problems in new, unexpected ways. Recently, Bessel worked with a medical device development firm to overcome an additive manufacturing challenge where speed and quality were the primary concerns.
A Complex Challenge
Sirius Engineering is a medical device development firm based in the heart of Silicon Valley. The Sirius team needed sets of two intricate parts, complete with fine threads, for a critical catheter build. The complexity of the part design challenged the capability of standard desktop resin 3D printers. Bessel turned to our partner, the W.M. Keck Center for 3D Innovation at the University of Texas at El Paso, renowned for its state-of-the-art industrial additive manufacturing systems.
Bessel's Research and Development Engineer, Andres Gutierrez, played a pivotal role in the project. His expertise, combined with the cutting-edge technology provided by the Keck Center yielded prototype parts with precision, surface quality, and rapid turnaround. "It was great to fabricate the parts with the fine threads usable 'as printed' on such a fast turnaround," he says. This achievement underscored Bessel's dedication to serving our customers with above-and-beyond effort and results.
The Results: Rapid Innovation
Tom Kramer, the founder of Sirius Engineering LLC, had high praise for Bessel: "Bessel did a great job understanding our needs and delivering perfect parts in record time."
At Bessel, we have learned that combining technical excellence with collaborative partnerships is a surefire way to create progress. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in medical device development through teamwork and fully exploiting advances in digital engineering tools and additive manufacturing.
We look forward to sharing more groundbreaking achievements in the future as we continue to forge ahead on our journey of technical excellence, collaborative success, and rapid
