Tella Tool’s Prototype Capabilities

At Tella Tool & Manufacturing Company we are an industry leader in the metal stamping & assembly, fabrication and CNC machining business.  Currently we occupy 150,000 sq. ft. in 4 plants and 2 states, with over 125 employees providing metal forming and machining services to numerous industries.  We also offer full prototype capabilities, with quick turnaround service.  One industry that has taken advantage of this is the medical device manufacturing industry.

Prototypes are an essential component in the development of metal stampings, and fabricated and machined components.  They can save time and costs by detecting issues during the design phase, instead of after a full production run is completed.  At Tella Tool we have the resources and equipment to offer complete engineering support to develop prototypes of our customer’s concepts and designs.

Our prototype capabilities include the following equipment:

  • 3 Axis Laser
  • Vertical & Horizontal CNC machining
  • Press Brakes
  • Turret Presses
  • Mig, TIG and Spot Welding
  • Shear
  • Secondary punch presses

Our experienced, diverse and innovative Engineering team lends support, assistance and guidance through the entire product development process.  Our Engineers work hand-in-hand with our customers’ engineers to collaborate and ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness through the design and prove out phases of a program.

Along with our prototype capabilities, we also offer program management resources which are dedicated to transforming the customer’s vision and expectations into an executable plan.  Our capabilities and experience allow us to streamline the delivery process, control costs and improve project results.  We will align our project management strategies directly with our customer’s business goals and objectives to make sure we meet their needs and expectations.

The Growing Medical Manufacturing Industry

The medical manufacturing industry is rapidly becoming one of the fastest growing industries in the world.  As the population continues to age, many resources are being put towards developing new medical devices that can be used to treat these patients.

Medical Manufacturing

From 2015 to 2020, the growth of the technical medical device market is expected to grow at compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%. This translates to an equivalent of $428,970,000 USD. Several factors are contributing to this growth, such as technological advances, chronic disease, an aging population that is growing, and a rise in disability adjusted life years (DALYs).

Overall, there are 10 types of medical devices that are distinguished by type and/or region.

These include:

  • In vitro diagnostics (IVD)
  • Diagnostic imaging devices
  • Cardiology devices
  • Orthopedic devices
  • Endoscopy devices
  • Ophthalmology devices
  • Orthopedic devices
  • Diabetes care devices
  • Anesthesia/respiratory care devices
  • Kidney/dialysis devices

The largest share of the global market comes from North America, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. Due to easy access of advanced medical devices and established channels of distribution, the U.S. is currently the top market. However, with a rapidly growing region, Asia-Pacific is being driven by a large population and increasing health care needs in their healthcare infrastructure which is constantly improving.

At Tella Tool, engineering support is offered to aide in design for manufacturability for new projects and ideas. We offer high/low volume precision metal stampings, assemblies, fabricating, and CNC machining solutions. Our precise and quality work is well suited for most industries, including the rapidly growing medical manufacturing industry.
