What it means to be “full-service” to a specific market.
We have all seen it before…manufacturers with a good array of machine tools, some inspection equipment, a table area dedicated to assembly and a shipping department with various sized boxes and labels ready to ship parts.
The problem begins and ends when such a facility performs for various market segments, all with specific needs and requirements. They may even be ISO registered, but somewhere in the mix of production schedules, a part appears for an airplane, another for an automotive engine and yet another being prepared for food processing equipment…and by the way, they also can manufacturer for the medical device market. Maybe.
In certain actuality, there are a myriad of reasons a true medical device manufacturer stands apart from the multi-market machine shop. This is especially true when that company was created for the medical device OEM, from its inception, true to the core and dedicated to the stringent needs of that particular segment only.
When C-Axis was being formulated years ago, the creators made certain that specific requirements of medtech businesses were met. Every work station and facility process-flow was determined to create greatness and success for the medtech OEM’s they were serving. Greatness, as derived from dedication to “full-service” and a true desire for actual vertical market integration from a complete manufacturing standpoint. What the medical device market requires, C-Axis would deliver, period.
Now, years into the making, C-Axis continues on that same pathway. Consistently asking the medical device OEM’s they serve how they can best assist them, what their actual needs are now and into the future, and consistently making adjustments, amendments, adding new streamlined processes to make every request a successful reality.
Attempting to plan for the future of the medtech industry is also a primary objective at C-Axis. That’s why, both the Minnesota and Puerto Rico facilities have grown substantially–consistently integrating new technology while relinquishing the old.
Being an ISO 13485 manufacturing facility is an obvious necessity, as well. However, it is the specific manner of performance and robust capability-set of both facilities that truly make a difference for the one and only market they serve.

Purposeful Medtech Performance Surrounding Quality Initiatives at C-Axis
The professionals at C-Axis believe QUALITY is often a term simply aligned with ISO Certifications and Inspection Procedures. While both are of vast importance to the medical device community, especially when considering a Medtech manufacturing partner, QUALITY at C-Axis encompasses a greater-good to every customer; traveling far past those quite obvious, but vitally necessary elements.
Take for example, the seemingly obsessive need to be as current and streamlined as possible regarding manufacturing process and procedure. C-Axis is consistently improving itself internally to best serve the Medtech world. Within the Minnesota facility alone, the company has gone through an extensive overhaul of machine tools, upgrading and replacing outdated and obsolete equipment, adding new technology to the already robust mix, and remains on-course to perform such evaluations on a continuous-basis, not just when the time “feels right”.
This facility is consistently upgraded for speed and accuracy. Most recently, C-Axis added dedicated workstations for specific processes. This was implemented to focus areas of the facility to certain tasks, making for quality-assessments to happen on a nearly hourly, sometimes minute-to-minute basis. This operational decision also aides the professionals who perform the tasks for greater personal well-being, limiting exposure to possible safety issues and minimizing risk of performance breaches.
The building itself has been the subject of ongoing upgrades, inside and out, all for the advancement of minimizing risk and enhancing quality control. The Vision System was added for steady, reliable in-process inspection procedures. (Please read more on the Quality Page of this site).
The company has even upgraded its environmental safety quotients making all workstations free from pests and insect-agents, while assisting the planet with greener initiatives.
C-Axis is ISO 13485 Registered and continuously follows-through with the systems and quality efficiencies necessary to stay ahead of the pack. But now you know, this company goes beyond what most precision manufacturing companies simply settle for; C-Axis believes QUALITY (and all they feel it stands for) is a #1 Priority, no matter what.
