New system, K-Tube Discover, provides support and resources for engineers in early phases of device development

Poway, Calif., May 30, 2012 K-Tube Technologies, the largest producer of miniature stainless steel tubing in the United States, is pleased to announce its new R&D process for device engineers, K-Tube Discover. Created for engineers in the early phases of design and development, K-Tube Discover combines quick turnaround manufacturing with an on-site metallurgy lab and a dedicated advisory team to help new client concepts come to life. K-Tube Technologies is the only manufacturer to offer stock and custom tubing direct from the source.

In order to bring a device to production, engineers need support, information and resources during the early phases of R&D. K-Tube Discover is a collaborative process, created specifically for medical device engineers and engineers in other highly regulated industries. A dedicated team of experienced engineers and quality control experts operate the K-Tube Discovery Center, which provides metallurgical knowledge combined with industry expertise to help shepherd highly customized concepts through the development cycle and into a prototype.

“The K-Tube Discovery Center is a conceptual playground where great ideas come to life,” said Greg May, president of K-Tube Technologies. “We’re happy to partner with medical device engineers to provide metallurgical expertise, deep knowledge of device design and commitment to quick turnaround essential for product development. K-Tube Discover is a unique direct source for medical engineers who need to buy and develop tubing from concept to prototype and beyond.”

To submit a concept for consideration, engineers are encouraged to visit www.k-tube.com/discover. Submissions are evaluated daily. Concepts that are accepted are assigned to the discovery team, which will collaborate with device engineers and supply chain experts from ideation to full-scale production, providing a single source for the entire life cycle of the device.
