Famos specializes in designing and producing a whole series of products for performing sterilization, packaging and transportation of medical devices, equipment and consumables. These products are used in in hospitals and health care facilities throughout the world.
One of these products – the rotary heat sealer – was nearing the end of its lifecycle and badly in need of a redesign. This involved a modern clean look, improved functionality and reduced production lead time.
After trying unsuccessfully to achieve a practical model which was fit for production, they contacted SPROUT for support. This collaboration ended up in a fresh look with the development of a sleek concealed closing mechanism, which made the use of visible externals screw redundant, contributing to the modern clean look. The product was also designed in a fashion which was favorable for production lead times. SPROUT also gave guidance and helped optimize the setup of the factory line to streamline production.
