Certified Medical Level Quality Assurance & Control Systems

Certified Medical Level Quality Assurance & Control Systems

Wright pays close attention to detail, invests in quality inspection equipment, and provides extensive training to its quality assurance staff. Every part manufactured by Wright goes through a customized inspection plan, developed around its use and purpose, and Wright ensures customers get the tight tolerances they need.

This commitment to quality has allowed Wright Engineered Plastics to pass the rigorous testing and auditing required for ISO 13485. This certification means that Wright meets and exceeds the quality management practices required to produce medical devices, but all of Wright’s customers benefit from this higher standard.

Expertise in Insert Molding & Overmolding Including In-Mold Assembly

Expertise in Insert Molding & Overmolding Including In-Mold Assembly

Wright uses its molding expertise to create custom solutions to the most challenging manufacturing problems.

For example, using special tooling techniques for insert molding, Wright manufactures plastic parts that create a hermetic seal so they can be assembled without extra chemicals or adhesives. Additionally, Wright’s innovative in-mold process assembles plastic parts with other components inside the mold itself. This creates a complete product the moment the plastic cools, while also reducing the need for chemicals and the potential for human error.

To improve reliability, reduce costs, and create functional differentiation, Wright constantly embraces new technologies such as in-mold assembly and robotics, and every day, the company looks for ways to increase productivity and agility to better meet the needs of its customers.

Contract Manufacturing, Assembly, & Exterior Enhancements

Contract Manufacturing, Assembly, & Exterior Enhancements

Wright offers both turnkey contract manufacturing and subassembly production.

Wright’s specialists can affix or bond applications to meet the strict requirements of any industry. Joining and fastening options include ultrasonic bonding and heat staking with solvent bonding, epoxies, and other adhesives.

Wright can perform electrical, leak, fit, drop, wear, functional, or other customized tests on products before they ship or progress. This safeguards production speed and reduces costs related to sending prototypes to other facilities for testing.

Wright can also add pad printing, affix labels, and create final packaging so the end user only has to open the box.
