Manifold Assembly for Life Science Applications
Fluidic Manifold Assembly embodies the full suite of services provided by Piedmont CMG. We provide fluidic manifold assembly as a tier 1 supplier to OEMs seeking critical, high-level contract manufacturing services. Machined and bonded fluidic manifolds often incorporate a variety of assembled components to create a sub-assembly that has to be tested and validated to customer specifications. Fluidic manifold assembly often integrates all of the various components required to transfer water, reagents, air, or other fluids through a section of a machine:
These components are attached to the manifold with threaded inserts that have been ultrasonically inserted and connectors to create a complete plug-and-play solution, thereby tremendously cutting down on lead time OEMs can offer to their customers.
Manifold Assembly Service for OEMs
Fluidic manifold assembly is often requested by OEMs developing instrumentation in the following industries:
- Life Science
- Clinical Diagnostics
- In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD)
- DNA & RNA Sequencing
- Oil & Gas
The contract manufacturing capability of fluidic manifold assembly provides an easy solution for simplifying the complicated requirements of pressurized or sterilized fluid management throughout an application.
Benefits of a Manifold Assembly
By utilizing fluidic manifold assembly at Piedmont CMG, our customers are able to simplify their supply chain and reduce their number of suppliers, thereby reducing their overall development costs and easing the burden on purchasing managers to find, qualify, and approve suppliers. This process involves close collaboration with our partners to ensure their fluidic hubs help to build more compact and reliable equipment, often in a shorter time frame and at a lower cost of production.
Fluidic manifold assembly at Piedmont CMG is only limited by the design and imagination of the requesting design engineer. We commonly work with manifold materials such as Ultem, polyetherimide (PEI), polysulfone (PSU), polycarbonate, acrylic (PMMA), Polyether ether ketone (PEEK), and many more. Contact us to learn more!
