Creating Components for Drug Delivery Systems with Quality Medical Device Manufacturing

Whether you are an OEM or other fabricator of medical equipment, you understand the importance of accuracy, reliability, and quality in the final product. Medical professionals and patients alike put their trust into tools and equipment that are manufactured in a separate place, by different people, often with standards and quality control that is not quickly identifiable. The reason hospitals, providers, and patients are able to put their trust into these external sources of equipment is because of the strict regulations the FDA, ISO, and other agencies place on manufacturer facilities and practices. MultiSource Manufacturing LLC goes above and beyond industry standards and regulations with our contract medical device manufacturing services.


As a manufacturer of custom medical device components, MultiSource is committed to maintaining up-to-date ISO standards as well as meeting our own high standards, while striving continually to expand and improve our practices and facilities. Our capabilities for fabricating parts and components for OEM medical devices range from surgical tools to implantable devices and beyond. One aspect of the medical device manufacturing we offer is for drug delivery system components.


Drug Delivery Systems

Because of the wide range of ways they are prescribed, drugs can be introduced to a patient in various ways. Drug delivery systems is a broad term for an extensive spectrum of devices and tools. Overall, the purpose of a drug delivery system is to perform targeted treatment of a controlled dosage dependent on the conditions of the patient. The components we fabricate are utilized in many types of drug delivery systems, including, among others:


  1. intravenous delivery systems
  2. anesthetic delivery devices
  3. infusion pumps
  4. intrauterine devices
  5. magnetic drug delivery
  6. inhalation systems
  7. digital medicine
  8. nasal spray devices
  9. catheterization devices
  10. emulsion vaccinations
  11. target-controlled infusion
  12. transdermal devices
  13. chemotherapy and radiation devices
  14. ultrasound drug delivery
  15. EpiPens and other auto-injectors
  16. nanoparticle drug delivery
  17. capsule and pill fabrication devices
  18. extended-release systems


Without access to the wide range of drug delivery systems available today, medical professionals would not be able to provide the treatments they do in order to daily promote health and save lives. MultiSource is dedicated to manufacturing components for drug delivery systems that meet exact specifications for form and function with key attentions to how a part will promote safe practices for medical devices of all kinds. Our own quality control standards meet the strictest stipulations for design, process, finishing, inspection, testing, packing, shipping, and traceability—all while we maintain open communication with our customers from start to finish.

The Importance of Laser Marking and Welding in the Fabrication of Complex Components

MultiSource Manufacturing LLC is committed to providing complete contract fabrication services to OEMs and other customers across the globe. To uphold our standard of comprehensive services, our multiple facilities work as a network of manufacturing, assembling, and finishing providers. From full engineering and prototyping services to finishing and value-added services, our team of expert fabricators can build the components and full assemblies you need.

While prototyping quality components with reliable, well-sourced materials is key to excellence in production, we understand the integral role that finishing services play in a comprehensive process. To meet quality finishing standards, the MultiSource network performs value-added services from plating to laser marking and beyond.

For many manufacturing projects, laser marking is a key operation during the finishing process.


What is Laser Marking?

Just as its name tells, laser marking is a process of labeling or otherwise marking a component with a laser. Laser marking can be accomplished with staining, annealing, cutting away, foaming, or engraving techniques. We perform laser marking operations on a wide range of materials including sheet metal, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, titanium, plastics, laminants, and painted surfaces.


How does it work?

To perform laser marking, there are several methodologies that vary depending on the material to be marked. Heat marking lasers can burn a surface and create an oxidation process to change the marked surface color. It can also create a chemical change that will otherwise stain or alter the color of a marked surface. This is typical for laser marking plastic surfaces. Engraving can be performed using the heat of a laser to remove surface material with evaporation or melting. Foaming laser marking can be applied to plastics as well. This process creates a gas bubble by evaporating surface material. The diffusion of light through the gas creates a color change in the desired areas.


Benefits of Laser Marking

We utilize laser marking in the finishing of many components because it offers a greater speed of surface marking with consistent quality of precision. Laser marking is effective on a wide range of varying materials and provides a durable, computer-controlled mark that is resistant to many forms of damage. Overall, laser marking is a faster and more highly-controlled marking process that offers a quality, long lasting surface alteration.

The Importance of Wet Processing in the Manufacturing of Semiconductor Components

When it comes to semiconductor manufacturing, the fabrication process is a highly exacting and intricate one. Semiconductors require a contaminant-free space for the majority of production stages, exceptionally pure materials, and a well-engineered process. From start to finish, MultiSource Manufacturing, LLC provides comprehensive, high-quality fabrication of semiconductor components and assemblies using concurrent engineering processes, a class 1000 clean room, PFA fabrication, and much more.

Semiconductor components are highly present in today’s electronics-saturated world in the tools and devices we each use every day. From the cell phones so present in the routine of our lives to the complex computational and mechanical systems used at NASA and in the military, semiconductors have a vital role. The MultiSource network provides semiconductor components and assembly production including microchip reticle handling and purging, wafer and device handling system components, and wet processing for the primary production stages.

Wet processing is a critical stage in the manufacturing of all semiconductor components. It is during this process in which the format of the pure wafer is created. The wet processing steps are applied in the following way:

1. A resistant material is deposited into the surface of the semiconductor wafer following the engineered format desired of the final product. For the majority of semiconductors, that format is what visually creates a small roadmap of connected nodes.
2. The wafer is then submerged in or otherwise exposed to a liquid or vapor that will etch away the exposed wafer and leave behind the format of the deposited material.
3. Finally, the wafer is cleaned and inspected for quality before moving to the next stage of the manufacturing process.

While the wet processing stages of semiconductor component manufacturing is a small portion of fabrication as a whole, it’s a critical one. The wet etching and cleaning of a semiconductor wafer remains the most effective way of creating an exactly engineered format. This is also why it’s key that our team of highly-trained experts applies reverse engineering to this process as a whole. The format of a semiconductor is what makes it a functioning electronic component, and to create the correct format, our engineers must understand the desired result and work backwards to develop a solution.

With a well-versed team of engineers ready to come into the design process with the understanding of reversed development, well-made semiconductor wafers, a high-class clean room, and reliable fabrication technology, MultiSource is a trusted manufacturer of semiconductor components for OEMs and other customers.
