Qualifications: ISO 13485, ISO 9001, FDA Registered, Supplier to Medical Manufacturers

Markets Supplied: Worldwide

 

Flexan is a global manufacturer that delivers cleanroom manufactured, assembled and packaged molded components (silicone and thermoplastic) for use in implantable Class III devices and disposable Class II and Class I medical devices.

Flexan provides highly customized components that medical device manufacturers depend upon for patient safety, efficacy and reliability. Flexan specializes in ultra-clean silicone molding components for Class II and Class III medical devices, such as implantable cardiac rhythm devices, implantable neurostimulation devices, orthopedic implants, breast implants, dental implants and intraocular lens.

  • ISO 9001-2008 & 13485 and FDA Registered
  • Speed to market via rapid development program and design assistance
  • Expertise in customer/ FDA requirements and global manufacturing standards

Flexan specializes in custom molding of thermoplastic components for Class II and Class III medical devices.

ISO 13485:2003 & 14644 and FDA Registered

Clean room manufacturing for ISO Class 8, (100,000) Expanded capabilities include thermoplastic insert and injection molding, extrusion, tip forming, hole drilling, printing, laser marking, finished device assembly along with sub-assembly, packaging and sterilization of custom, high-precision silicone and thermoplastic components primarily used in medical devices, as well as hearing technologies, industrial controls, aerospace and defense, and miniature pneumatics.

Our end-to-end capabilities include:

  • Design for manufacturability 
  • Rapid prototyping P
  • Process validation (IQ, OQ, PQ) 
  • Molding 
  • Extrusion/Tubing (Thermoplastic and Silicone)
  • Secondary operations, including hole drilling 
  • Assembly 
  • Logistics and distribution 
  • Manufacturing management and sustainability 
  • Lean Six Sigma methodologies  

Flexan produces 140 million parts with a quality measure of 99.9%. In fact, 80 percent of our business is delivering products for top Class III medical device companies. We have been serving our global customer base for over 70 years. To learn more, contact us at: [email protected]

Our engineers work with each client to determine the best molding process, tool design, and manufacturing controls for the application, in keeping with the client’s material preferences and plans for manufacturing (DFM) and assembly.

CUSTOM SILICONE MOLDINGS REQUIRE DIFFERENT SILICONE MOLDING PROCESSES

Our engineers recommend the optimal molding process for each application, based on the silicone material specified by the manufacturer and the expected production volume.

Our processes include:

  • Silicone Extrusion/Tubing 
  • Liquid Injection Molding
  • Transfer Molding
  • Compression Molding
  • Micromolding
  • Silicone to Metal Bonding / Insert Molding

Flexan also operates a state-of-the-art mixing and molding operation dedicated exclusively to infusing silicone with desiccant. More implantable medical devices are incorporating desiccants to absorb moisture from the body to ensure the long-term function and safety of the device.

Medical grade silicone is the material of choice for medical device components that require high performance and safety when in short or long term contact with the human body.

OUR COMPONENTS ARE PRODUCED IN AN “ULTRA-CLEAN” FACILITY

Nearly 75 percent of the silicone components we produce are Class III implant-grade components. Our custom silicone components are produced in our advanced ultra-clean Class 5 clean room facilities, going beyond the basic requirement of Class 7 clean rooms for medical device component manufacturing.

Flexan produces:

  • Long-Term Implantable Silicone Components for Class III Medical Devices
  • Short-Term Implantable Silicone Components for Class II Medical Devices
  • Disposable Silicone Components for Class II Medical Devices
A FOCUS ON SILICONE MOLDING QUALITY

Since 1989, Flexan has built its operations with one goal: to produce the highest quality silicone components for medical devices. Our quality philosophy begins with the tightest process controls and the rigorous use of quality tools from design through production. Additionally, to ensure patient safety, we provide 100 percent inspection of every single component before it ships.

We incorporate best practices, a defined process, and continuous improvement to deliver zero defects and reliability with on-time delivery and global distribution.

US AND CHINA MANUFACTURING

We are proud to be the first U.S.-based medical silicone molding operation to be established and validated in China, with a strong record of quality shipments since 2011. Our facility is located in one of the premier industrial developments in China, with a robust infrastructure and room for expansion.

Whether a U.S.-based client chooses to manufacture in China, the U.S. or both facilities, our U.S. staff members oversee each project, serving as liaison to our managers in China as required. All projects, whether manufactured in the U.S. or China, are quoted in U.S. dollars to avoid currency exchange issues.

  • Dual Capabilities - Flexan maintains dual tooling and molds and advanced manufacturing systems in both facilities to ensure quality and availability.
  • Security - We safeguard our clients' proprietary data and i...
