Custom Steel Fabricated Medical Photo-Acoustic Devices

A customer in the medical industry commissioned Fabco Manufacturing, Inc. to design and build a prototype for the photo-acoustic device highlighted here. Our engineers worked with the client to produce a design fitting their requirements, creating prototypes that were tested and fine-tuned for production approval. Upon approval it was imperative that we produced a zero defect product. This unit required heavy finishing work, costing the customer hours in assembly time so the part had to be to specification. At Fabco we were up to the challenge, employing our recognized manufacturing capabilities to produce the part from 14ga, 16ga, and 18ga cold rolled steel, expertly manipulating the material with our precision shearing, punching, forming, TIG welding, and grinding services & processes.

Overall dimensions of the device were 14″ in width, 24″ in depth, and 36″ in height. The article was finished with zinc plating for longevity and high performance, and inspected for quality with first article and dimensional methods. Turnaround time for this project was 3 weeks. Our relationship with the customer has evolved from design and prototyping to handling the full time production of this unit, fabricating 25 pieces per week and packaging with custom crating for international shipment.
