Designing innovative prototypes


CAD/CAM software helps contract design house NOVO Engineering create stable designs that it transfers to contract manufacturers around the globe.

For the past 14 years, NOVO Engineering’s creative, yet practical solutions have formed the basis for a variety of popular medical devices, life science automation, digital imaging equipment, and commercial products from clients such as Medtronic, Synthetic Genomics, Hewlett- Packard, and TaylorMade. NOVO engineers appear as inventors on a broad range of patents, with commercial rights usually assigned to clients. The company’s start-to-finish contract design service offers concept development, engineering, prototyping, fabrication, testing, and transition to manufacturing.

“We do a lot of prototyping and fabrication as part of our ISO-13485 certified product development process. We are not a contract manufacturer but are ISO-9001 certified for prototype builds including medical devices used for human clinical trials,” says NOVO President and Chief Technology Officer Dr. Rajan Ramaswamy. “We have helped many clients create stable designs, and then assisted them in transferring these designs to contract manufacturers all over the world.”
