VIDEOTON Opens Towards the Manufacture of Medical Devices

Reading time ( words)

VT ES Kft. is the second within the VIDEOTON group of companies – after VIDEOTON Elektro-PLAST Kft. – to obtain the ISO 13485 standard for quality management of medical devices.

Following the qualification of the Kaposvár-located VIDEOTON Elektro-PLAST Kft. in 2016, the Székesfehérvár-based VT ES Kft. – dealing with the assembly of final products, low to medium volume sheet metal part manufacturing and powder coating, as well as the development and distribution of Automated Identification technology systems – received the ISO 13485 qualification at the beginning of 2021. 

During the certification audit at the Székesfehérvár site of VT ES Kft., the company succeeded to meet the quality management standards through the production processes of two different product types, so the certification is valid for the assembly of three products (two types of air curtain cabinets and an exhaust fan). Therefore, the certification applies to mechanical / electromechanical contract manufacturing of sub-assemblies of active, non-implantable medical devises. 

The aim of VT ES Kft. by obtaining this certification is to establish cooperation with as many new partners as possible also in this market segment where our Kaposvár-based member company, VIDEOTON Elektro-PLAST has already gained experience. The company, which is mainly engaged in final assembly and plastic injection moulding, will launch another project in 2021 in the field of manufacturing plastic parts for the control device of surgical robots.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Smart Data, Chapter 1

12/30/2020 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.
