Downstream processes & further processing in medical technology

One supplier, all from one source

Our services do not end with the production of medical tubing systems and injection molded components in class 6 to 8 cleanrooms. Depending on the technology used, hose extrusion or injection molding, we offer a wide range of downstream processes for medical technology. We consider all interfaces and advise you on possible manufacturing and joining processes, take into account all mechanical, chemical and regulatory specifications and derive solution formulations.
Our customized solutions and subsequent downstream medical device processes ensure that your products are perfectly suited to your applications and offer maximum efficiency. Take advantage of our range of downstream processes. Rely on Novoplast Schlauchtechnik and Fleima-Plastic  for top performance in medical devices. One supplier, everything from one source.

Example image: Assembly


By assembly, we mean the joining of two or more medical components or assemblies. Depending on the application and the requirements of the joint, we offer the following services: Mating, Joining, UV Bonding, Ultrasonic Welding, Solvent Bonding.

Example image: Tip forming

Tip designs

Another downstream process for medical devices is the creation of atraumatic tips on the cut edges of the tubing sections. We make what you need. Whether conical, round, closed, open or slotted. Almost any tip can be made by customizing the tooling.

Example picture: Warm forming

Hot forming

With subsequent heat treatment and appropriate forming tools, this downstream process can produce a variety of 2D and 3D shapes that are specifically tailored to the customer's needs. These may be radii, bends in one or more directions, angles, or the like. Conventional end forming, such as a Tiemann-point (Tiemann-Spitze), is also no challenge!

Example image: Marking


A very popular downstream process for our customers is thermal transfer, laser or inkjet marking. (ring marking, area marking, inline printing). We are able to provide 360° printing of the hose using two different processes. One is ring laser marking and the other is thermal transfer printing. Biocompatible, fast, easy. Laser printing can be used to achieve unique effects in printing.

Example image: Toolmaking and tool relocation

Tool making and tool relocation

Sometimes it is necessary to move a mold and all of the associated injection molding production from one supplier to another. As another downstream process, we bring the best prerequisites for a successful relocation of your molds and production.

Example image: Cutting


In medical applications, not all holes are created equal. We are able to insert annular holes along the tube by drilling through the downstream separation process. The alternative would be a punching process that creates a hole on both sides of the wall. Drilling means that the wall is not weakened on both sides, allowing the hose to withstand higher loads. We also offer a cutting service as well as single and double wall cutting (also spiral).

Example image: Medical assembly

Assembly of medical technology components

With coordinated project management and a combination of extrusion and injection molding solutions, we understand that the downstream assembly process requires the highest level of accuracy. Our highly skilled teams use state-of-the-art technologies to ensure that every component fits perfectly. We don't compromise when it comes to the quality of your assemblies. With us, you get everything from a single source. From injection molded parts to hoses, from fabrication to final assembly, we seamlessly integrate all components to optimize your processes and reduce costs.

Example image: Establishment of hybrid elements

Establishment of hybrid elements

For demanding applications, we can incorporate non-polymer elements such as braid, wires, or even cables into the hose. This allows us to combine conflicting requirements (e.g. softness and tensile strength). In this way, we can enable additional functions such as the transmission of electrical, optical or electronic signals.

Beispielbild: Dokumentation und Technologie Transfer

Documentation and technology transfer

The somewhat different downstream processes in medical technology are documentation and technology transfer. If product dimensions are ever not defined or known, we can implement a variation of different scenarios. The resulting product dimensions are measured and documented so that they can be used as a basis for further development steps. We are at your disposal for process development and material qualification runs with our installed capabilities and knowledge. After successful implementation, the transfer of the products to you can take place.

Example image: Packaging


Safe and sterile packaging (Tyvek® (Dupont) sterile bags, welding, sealing, double PE) is a matter of course. Single packaging or set packaging can be realized. Anything that can be packaged in a sterile Tyvek® (Dupont) or paper pouch can be sealed and prepared for sterilization. Take advantage of this downstream process for your medical device components. We will be happy to advise you.

We are your partner for the validation of plastic components and downstream processes in medical devices. We are fast, compliant and (audit)safe. From material selection to final testing, we rely on rigorous validation procedures to ensure peak performance. We develop plastic compositions and test them in subsequent product qualification runs.

Process validation has become more of a focus in recent years!

Validation is part of the downstream processes in medical technology, one could say. The number of process validations has steadily increased over the past few years.

One reason is the increasing number of risk reports. Our products go through rigorous validation processes to ensure they meet the highest quality and safety standards.

We understand the importance of validation in the medical device industry and work closely with our customers to ensure that all requirements are met.

The materials and dimensions specified in the consulting phase are implemented under real production conditions so that first samples of your product are available in a timely manner.

We are your partner for the validation of plastic components and downstream processes in medical technology.
