In addition to the new tooling we’ve been developing and the CNC machined components we’ve manufactured, I have been busy participating in a variety of events in Houston and Austin explore how emerging technologies like VR and drones are impacting the medical device industry.
Last month, I visited TMCx and had a behind the scenes tour of Johnson and Johnson’s new Center for Device Innovation from Dr. Billy Cohn. The state of the art facility boasts all the newest, top of the line tools for rapid medical device development.
Not only did I get to see the CNC machines, 3D printers, office space with shipping container conference room, wet labs, and more, I also got to play with the new VR suite and watch Dr. Cohn fly a drone through the facility.
While in Houston, I gave two talks at TMCx about the “Pitfalls of the Product Development Process”. I also held office hours to support the current cohort of 19 companies participating in the TMCx program. At Rice University, I spoke to Dr. Eric Richardson’s bioengineering students to provide insights on careers in the medical device industry.
I had a great time and I look forward to heading back to TMCx soon.
Back in Austin, I participated in the Austin Regional Manufacturing Association’s first ever 2017 Central Texas Manufacturing Trade Show. Not only was it ARMA’s first manufacturing trade show in Austin, it was also Arsenal’s first ever participation in a trade show. I met a lot of great people and look forward to working with many of them soon.
As the end of 2017 is rapidly approaching, look to Arsenal to help you solve those nagging manufacturing issues you just didn’t quite get around to this year.
