Are you looking to learn important tips for designing and specifying metal components for your medical device?
Precision metal components and springs play critical roles in the function of countless medical devices and systems.

From surgical instruments and drug delivery devices, to consumer electronics and electronic sensors, OEMs rely on tight tolerance metal parts and springs to ensure their devices and systems function flawlessly.

Attend this educational webinar which will address:

  • Material Selection
  • Part Geometry
  • Stamped vs. Machined Components
  • Fine Blanking
  • Wire Forming
  • Spring Coiling
  • Dimensioning and Tolerancing
  • Tooling Considerations
  • Prototyping and more

You will also briefly learn about assistance with part designs, in-house tooling design and build, technical project management, quality systems, and consistent volume manufacturing across global production locations.


Pete Marut, Sales Engineer, Metalform, CSS (Connecticut Spring & Stamping)

Pete has more than 25 years of experience in developing metal forming processes, tooling, and technology. Customers and clients rely on Pete’s engineering and estimating experience to make recommendations for design-for-manufacturability on all types of progressive die stamped parts, secondary processes, fine blanking technology, material selection, and more. This type of assistance proves invaluable when assessing your design concepts and ideas. Note that we typically request to see CAD files, drawings and specifications.

Dale Pereira, Sales Engineer, Springs, CSS (Connecticut Spring & Stamping)

Dale has over 20 years of experience in spring design and manufacturing. Customers and clients rely on Dale’s engineering and estimating process experience to make recommendations for design-for-manufacturability with all types of springs and wire form applications. With Dale’s guidance, design concepts and material options can be reviewed, and in some cases simulations run to better understand the limits of a proposed design. Note that we typically request to see specs and drawings. Sample parts are always helpful too.
