Take your medical part or assembly from design to finished product with assistance from Wiegel Tool Works. Our focus is the fabrication of high-volume stamped metal parts for the medical industry and its supply chain partners.
Patient health, top quality parts
The medical device industry is wide-ranging, from implants and instruments to equipment intended for therapeutics, monitoring and diagnostics. These include reconstructive devices such as hip and knee replacements as well as monitors for cardiac and diabetic care. Here are more medical applications that utilize stamped metal parts.
- 3D imaging
- Measurement and inspection tools
- Patient care kiosks
- Diagnostic apparatuses
- Instrument connectors, plugs and fittings
- Device housings, sleeves and enclosures
Poorly manufactured components can cause complete medical device failure, which can negatively impact patients, healthcare professionals and the equipment manufacturer alike. Fallout can include expensive recalls, negative customer feedback, degraded company perception, and ultimately, reduced profit margins.

Whether research-and-development or multi-million-quantity production, Wiegel Tool Works can meet your needs. With 145,000 square feet of manufacturing space spread across 3 separate facilities, we use the latest in metal stamping equipment and quality assurance technology. Our highly trained technicians operate state-of-the-art Minster and Bruderer punch presses and deploy in-line vision and sensor equipment to ensure only high-quality, conforming parts leave our manufacturing operation.
While time to market is critical in any industry, medical device manufacturers especially want to get devices approved and to market quickly. However, quality assurance is an essential part of the process, and companies cannot skip steps or cut corners if they want to meet federal and international compliance standards.
Quality is of the utmost importance at Wiegel Tool Works. We conduct a feasibility review on the part to ensure manufacturability at the start of every program. A run-at-rate study is also implemented on the first run to ensure quality before large-scale production. This enables our quality and production management teams to monitor controls closely and make sure jobs run smoothly. Manufacturing continues once testing checks out, and the first batch of conforming parts is produced.
Our quality management system is comprised of sophisticated quality technology and controls, continuous improvement programs and a superior quality laboratory and quality management team. Throughout our production plant, we deploy in-line/off-line camera vision systems and sensor technology, in which we design and fabricate unique to every production program. Our vision system technology operates in coordination with our stamping production machinery to thoroughly inspect and identify part features and dimensions with automated camera imaging. This quality control process ensures every part produced with our stamping equipment always yields 100% quality and zero defects.
