Morgan Innovation and Technology (Morgan IAT) designs, develops, and manufactures innovative products for the medical market. Their next generation of non-intrusive medical device equipment had a requirement to phase out mechanical controls and move towards a more sophisticated touchscreen. From the beginning, the team at Morgan IAT recognised that whilst they hold specialist knowledge within the market that they serve, embedded and LCD technology requires its own high level of engineering aptitude.
Fully aware of Anders’ evolution to full production lifecycle services across the supply chain for ‘generation touch’ e.g. engineering, design, development, manufacture, and delivery, the team at Morgan IAT knew that the answer to their developmental challenge could exist within the expertise offered at Anders.
Initially commissioned to design the touchscreen TFT display and embedded solution, Anders met this challenge and could have stopped there. But they went beyond expectations, introducing Morgan IAT to alternative glass solutions that they were not aware of. By offering a seamless, single clean surface over the entire unit, with added strengthening properties, the benefits of this solution clearly outclassed any alternatives. Since cleanliness is critical within the medical market, as is product robustness, this solution was implemented and is now part of the final design.
Designing for medical compliance
As the design for compliance is part of the Anders service end-to-end portfolio, the team are familiar with the highly regulated, non-intrusive medical market requirements. This is just as well, since during the design process the ESD standard was updated, which meant the Morgan IAT device had to withstand a much higher voltage level than initially anticipated. Anders took ownership and developed a solution for regulatory compliance. This level of added-value service exceeded even the highest expectations of the Morgan IAT team.
Commenting Nigel Clarke, CEO at Morgan Innovation & Technology:
''This proactive consultative approach was incredibly helpful for Morgan IAT. We are a medical device company; therefore, we understand the various regulations e.g. ISO 13485, but Anders specialise in display and touchscreen technology and were able to add their specialist bespoke engineering approach, looking at how the product is going to interact and combine with the environment where it will be applied.”
