2019 was a busy year for everyone at PEKO. Our capabilities and manufacturing space expanded, we created new committees and opened our doors to host a private event for local CNC Machinists.
PEKO is excited to announce the arrival of another large horizontal machining center to our CNC Machining facility. While the machine was delivered to our facility a few months ago, a machine of this size took a few weeks for our team to piece together, set up and calibrate. All of which ensures the WIA can preform to the highest standard in terms of quality. This all happened after we removed an older machine from the facility, and laid a new pad in our foundation to support a giant of its size.
We are constantly surrounded by data and as the IoT seems to have no indication of slowing down, what does this mean for the manufacturing industry as a whole? Well, Michael Mansard of Zuora Inc. has some interesting comments on how manufacturing companies have evolved their business scope from just pushing products off the shelves in his article published in Industry Today: Services, Not Products, Are the Future of Manufacturing.
The term "Medical Device," is a broad term that can have a few different meanings. Depending on how the device will be used, there are different classifications to determine quality assurance that is associated with the device's manufacturing. Classifications of Medical Devices refer to Class I, Class II, and Class III which differentiate the level of risk associated with the device as well as the level of regulatory controls required during manufacturing.
Regardless of their classification, Medical Devices have touched every person's life in one way or another. And whether or not they have specifically saved our own lives, it's safe to assume they have saved the life of someone we love. This is how important our company treats the manufacturing of Medical Devices and this sentiment is felt through each and every person who works on our Medical Device projects within our organization.
If you're looking for a Contract Manufacturer to manage your machinery or equipment in its entirety, you're going to want to find a company has extensive in-house capabilities.
You've done it! You've created a new technology that will disrupt its industry once it hits the market. But there are a few minor setbacks: since you've just successfully pieced your technology together you know that you'll have to get in front of a Contract Manufacturer in order to make the hundreds, or even thousands, that you plan on hitting the market with. But just how much design engineering will you need from your future CM once you find one?
Companies begin seeking assistance in manufacturing once they've developed a new machinery or equipment product line with the newest industry leading technology. The machinery itself is usually beautiful, functional and these companies expect the market demand to soar. Within a short period of time said companies expect sales to surpass dozens or hundreds of units to an eager customer base domestically and internationally, but there is just one major problem: How will these companies produce their "next big thing?"
Many of the customers who have walked through our doors have one simple question in mind: "How will my project fit into the this company, and will they have enough resources to give my project the time that it needs?" The manufacturing capacity of an organization is the "make-it" or "break-it" of a company's ability to sustain and meet the aggressive deadlines within the manufacturing industry. Having established robust and up-to-date practices ensure that products will make it to the end-user when agreed upon.
As another year closes, the time for reflection opens. Looking back on all that 2018 had to offer us, we couldn't be more grateful for the continued support from our customers and dedicated staff. As we continue to move ourselves forward, and prepare for the year 2019, we want to share with you all of the exciting things that 2018 brought for us.
Do you have machinery or equipment that you need manufactured? Or, maybe you have some major mechanical equipment that needs to be assembled. Or maybe it’s just the beginning of a break-through idea that you have, but you need some more help with the engineering & design. Perhaps you just can't justify building a full-functioning factory. Whatever the reason may be, if you're looking to outsource, knowing where to turn to may be overwhelming. We're here to help.
