Share Article

ThermoFab is the leader in innovative custom plastic enclosure solutions for medical device companies as well as other industries. Its proprietary thermoforming process allows for tighter tolerances, more creative designs, and greater detail in the undercuts.

The biggest compliment customers can pay ThermoFab is when they reorder parts with us, whether for the first time or the fiftieth.” - Tom King, Jr., President.

ThermoFab, a manufacturer of custom plastic enclosures, announced recent repeat business from customers who are leaders within the medical device industry: Florida-based Mako Surgical Corporation, which develops innovative orthopedic devices, and Medica Corporation, which manufactures blood testing analyzers and is based in Massachusetts.

Mako Surgical reordered its second-generation Tactile Guidance System™ (TGS™), an advanced robotic-arm solution for minimally invasive orthopedic knee procedures, known as MAKOplasty®. ThermoFab manufactured the enclosure for this second-generation robot. What especially impressed Mako when working with the thermoforming company was ThermoFab's responsiveness to both Mako's timeline and design needs. Mako’s Manager of Robotic Design, Brian Schmitz, says, “ThermoFab was very responsive and very open to view our designs without a commitment to the shop.”

ThermoFab has been working with Medica Corp. since 2003 on the prototype for the Cell-Dyn EasyCell digital cell morphology system , which is designed for use in hospitals and clinical labs. This product automates the location of white blood cells on a stained blood film and preclassifies them. The order is for the initial production run in 2010.

“The biggest compliment customers can pay ThermoFab is when they reorder parts with us, whether for the first time or the fiftieth,” said Tom King, Jr., President. “It shows they value and appreciate the quality work we do for them as much as we value having them as a customer. Our commitment to their products' success is always our top priority."
