New innovations in Advanced Wound Care products require more and more complex manufacturing processes. When one of our customers had such a successful new product launch that demand quickly outstripped their ability to meet it with internal resources, they asked us if we could help with an end-to-end contract manufacturing solution.
Baril’s talented engineering group and deep quality system, made it possible for us to design a complete manufacturing line for compounding foam, including antimicrobial foam, in a Class 8 Clean Room environment, for an end-to-end solution that helped them scale to meet demand.
Engineering expertise, sophisticated quality systems and creativity enable Baril to introduce new capabilities such as wet and dry chemistry manufacturing when customers need them. Find out what we can do for you.
Baril is on the forefront of deploying collaborative robotic technology in the contract medical manufacturing space. Collaborative robots (or co-bots) work alongside human workers, making them more productive and cutting human idle time by as much as 85%. They are highly adaptable, easily trainable and can handle ergonomically challenging tasks, so they can be deployed quickly for short runs or to handle multiple tasks during the production process.
This flexibility allows our process engineers to design more efficient work flows that cut costs, speed time to market, and improve quality. Just another example of how Baril is working to put innovative manufacturing techniques to work for our customers.
If you need to marry die cut, molded or electronic components, contact us to find out how we may be able to put collaborative robotics to work for you.
Rising international labor rates, uncertainty around new trade policies, and global tensions, have made decisions about where to manufacture labor intensive medical products riskier. Baril recently helped a customer reduce that risk and improve competitiveness with an automated assembly solution that optimizes production across a number of variables.
Baril engineers and quality experts designed and supervised the build of a highly efficient assembly process that dramatically cut costs, improved quality, and speeded up delivery times, allowing our customer to bring production back from Asia.
Regardless of whether you are considering bringing production back home or moving it offshore, Baril can ease your decision process by helping you understand if an automated assembly solution is the right move for your production needs. To learn more:

MLSC is a workforce development program focused on enhancing the talent pipeline for Massachusetts companies engaged in life sciences by expanding the pool of prospective employees who have practical experience, enhancing opportunities for mentoring, and providing to students interested in working in the life sciences a peer network through educational and informational networking events.
We’ll be exhibiting at MD&M East, June 13-15, booth 656. If you are planning to attend, please take the opportunity to stop by our booth and challenge us with your toughest design, production or timing issues. To schedule an appointment during the show, please contact Neil Muchin, our VP of Sales, at 510-772-0433, or at:
Six strategies for helping manufacturers more accurately assess the total costs of offshore vs. onshore production.
The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Estimator is a free online tool that helps companies account for all relevant factors to determine the true total cost of offshore production. Check it out…we’ll be happy to help you assess if moving production back to the US makes economic sense for you.
Interesting article from Medical Design Technology highlights the issues and concerns medical device manufacturers have when making outsourcing decisions. A survey conducted among their readers shows that ease of communications, higher quality, lower shipping costs and IP protection are factors that make U.S.-based contract manufacturers highly appealing vis-a-vis international vendors.
