Pharmaceutical Technology and Drug Delivery Systems

Precision metal components for intelligent drug delivery systems and respiratory devices

Self-administered drug delivery is one of the fastest growing medical/pharmaceutical segments on a global scale. Increasingly, patient care incorporates pen-like devices to safely inject medicines at home without worry of improper dose administration.

Connected devices (IoMT devices) using smart applications to monitor use and collect data is key to successful drug delivery platforms and effective patient care. Economy Spring & Stamping’s years of product development support, while optimizing the integration of precision metal components in your device, make us the ideal partner for your project.

Examples include: micro-sized drug delivery springs in wearable delivery systems, power springs in a pen device that deliver the drug or needle retraction springs for patient comfort. Pharmaceutical wire forms / stampings that help optimize circuit and battery connectivity, custom-tipped sharps or needles, RNS removal components and anti-fire hardware that prevents accidental triggering of the device. These components help control the safety and delivery timing for auto-injectors or respiratory inhalers that disperse drugs. Reliability is a not an option when it comes to delivering the precise dose every time.

Economy Spring & Stamping is the partner you can rely on to assist with development of the pharmaceutical spring or component design. We support the commercialization process so that the device administers the exact dose when triggered throughout the life of the program.

Although self-administered drug therapies are expanding rapidly in the global market, many of today’s drug delivery systems are monitored by a medical professional via wireless communication. From the drug delivery springs, pharmaceutical stampings and wire forms, bellows, custom battery contacts, and timing contacts that ensure critical network communication circuits perform reliably, Economy Spring & Stamping doesn’t just make drug delivery safer, we also help make it smarter!

Auto-Injectors and Drug Delivery Springs

Economy Spring & Stamping specializes in drug delivery system components, including drug delivery springs. Many of the auto-injectors on the market use metal drug delivery springs to control the device’s needle and achieve precise delivery of the drug. The drug delivery springs in each device often include a main spring and return spring that must be designed so they don’t damage plastic parts and compromise the integrity of the device. Economy’s engineers can provide the design expertise to support device and component development for these and other demanding applications. We support pharmaceutical and medical OEMs from design and prototyping to full production.  For more information download our white paper, Designing Auto-Injectors for Multiple Drug Viscosities, or view our rapid prototyping brochure.

Economy Spring’s expertise extends to micro-components that can help decrease the size of the devices and support connectivity for smart devices and smart drug delivery devices. Major applications include diabetes devices and wearable medical devices.
