3D Printed End use headlice treatment. Demand for 200-300 devices annually meant the cost of traditional manufacturing methods were unjustified. With 3D Printing it was possible to redesign the tool to consolidate parts and add in helpful feature to aid with the assembly process. The initial prototyping and end use production were done on one machine. Loctite MED413 had the perfect material properties for this application. Top material properties included toughness, temperature, providing high part dimensional stability and an exceptional surface finish. The material is also sterilisable so the tips can be reused.
