We believe the best way to maintain the highest standards in design, manufacture, quality and customer care is to have complete control of these elements of our business. This integrated in-house philosophy means we are able to respond quickly and effectively to our customers and consistently meet their requirements.
The designs are then transferred to our state-of-the-art tool room, where the moulds are designed and validated. These tool designs, with up to 1000 individual parts, are transferred using CAM to the latest CNC tool manufacturing equipment and innovative processes such as laser sintering is used to create optimised cooling for high volume manufacture.
New moulds are trialed and validated in pre-production, and the in-house production development team design and manufacture the required assembly equipment, with an emphasis on automation. After the required trials these tools pass seamlessly into the main production area.
Intersurgical has continuously invested in new machinery, from high quality manufacturers or built in-house by our engineering departments across our manufacturing sites.
We use all of the conventional moulding techniques within the company, for volume manufacture of over 97% of the component parts that are utilised in our finished products.
Products that require sterilisation are moved into a separate area of a factory to undergo sterilisation treatment using Ethylene Oxide.
Information Technology (IT)
Information technology is an integral element of the total manufacturing control process, our MRP database forms the backbone of a system that delivers information for production right to the operatives work place with details of product formulations, work instructions and quality requirements. The deployment of this all forms part of the e-learning system, essential to ensure consistent product quality.
All of our products are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the requirements of relevant BS, ISO and EN standards and are regularly audited by the relevant bodies.
