Winning Combination Helps Industry Pioneer Create Innovative Products Faster with Lower Costs
NEEDHAM, Mass - PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today announced that Mindray Medical International Co. Ltd, one of the leading manufacturers of medical devices in China, has grown its business with the implementation of PTC Pro/ENGINEER and Pro/INTRALINK. Mindray’s award-winning patient monitoring products and its digital ultrasound imaging systems, blood cell analyzers and biochemical analyzers continue to lead the medical devices market. Mindray’s products were developed using Pro/ENGINEER, PTC’s integrated CAD/CAM/CAE software that helps companies develop detailed, intuitive and realistic digital product representations and Pro/INTRALINK, PTC’s software for Pro/ENGINEER workgroup data management.
Mindray continues to develop innovative products with the implementation of Pro/ENGINEER and Pro/INTRALINK, including decreasing time-to-market and costs while improving quality and overall efficiencies. In addition, customer satisfaction has also been improved by leveraging ProductView, PTC’s 3D visualization tool to provide better insight into what products will look like and how they will behave when produced.
With Pro/INTRALINK, Mindray has a tool that can help eliminate inconsistency between parts, enabling simultaneous engineering among divisions and improving overall product design. With Pro/INTRALINK’s version control, Mindray can enable its design teams to share the right version of Pro/ENGINEER data as compared with its previous 2D design process. Furthermore, with the standardization of its structural design process, Mindray has improved its version control and ability to manage changes.
“Pro/ENGINEER empowers us to create a complete 3D design containing all required parts and components. Now we are capable of analyzing and evaluating an entire model easily,” said Mr. Mu Le Min, VP of Operation of Mindray. “The number of drawings has decreased and evaluation accuracy has improved, achieving the goal of reducing the development cycle time and cost. Moreover, machining and assembly have been refined without rework through easy access to CAD/CAM data. This has virtually eliminated the necessity of redrawing. Ultimately, the changes we made in 3D design have benefited the company from both environmental regulation and cost perspectives.”
“Life sciences customers are facing more pressures in their businesses to speed time-to-market while meeting increasingly stringent regulatory demands,” said David Rubin, director of vertical market strategy, life sciences industry, PTC. “The accolades that Mindray has received on their innovative designs and craftsmanship are a testament to the company’s pioneering status in the realm of medical industrial design.”
Today, eight of the world's top 10 medical products suppliers, 10 of the world's top 15 pharmaceuticals companies and three of the top five OEMs rely on PTC for their product solutions. Using PTC’s superior Product Development System, life science companies are able to develop better quality, lower-cost products faster, and streamline their introduction into the marketplace.
