Yes. All inks used in our operation are Class VI certified for use on medical device components and meet the stringent requirements of regulatory agencies both in the U.S. as well as abroad (Europe).
Yes, our offerings are continually in development. Some of our specialty inks include Radiopaque™ inks. We are the only pad printer in the world that offers Silicone Radiopaque™ inks that are proprietary and unique to CI Medical. Specialty proprietary techniques include methods that allow us to print on difficult substrates and surfaces that others insist are “unprintable.”

Sure. To be quite honest, there are very few instances where this kind of an investment is really cost effective. The whole idea behind outsourcing is to streamline your own operations and assign the specialized tasks to those who excel at it. Because we have spent more than 35 years developing techniques and investing in state-of-the-art equipment, our services have a lot of value already built into them. In addition to the learning curve, you would have to deal with the ongoing maintenance of the machine. You will also have to deal with OSHA and EPA issues surrounding the use of solvents and inks. If your product needs pretreatment, you will either have to buy another machine, or outsource it. CI Medical is totally self-sufficient. We will figure out the engineering and printing techniques, print your prototype, pretreat and print your device in full production runs and provide you with all the documentation you require.
