Medical Device Manufacturing

Medical device manufacturers work within a highly regulated environment while also facing the challenges inherent in producing precision products with very strict tolerances and specifications, often in clean room environments. At the same time, medical device manufacturers are not immune to the necessity of keeping a close eye on operational margins and profitability. That is why Vorne XL is a very popular tool for this industry.

XL drops onto your existing process with little to no changes to that process. Whether you operate automated vial filling and dosing lines, semi-automated needle and syringe machines, manual sub-assembly and box build processes, or anything in between, Vorne XL captures comprehensive OEE, Six Big Loss, and TEEP data. It accounts for every source of lost production time and opportunity and delivers plant-wide visibility of real-time data and historical analytics. Operators benefit as well with contextual scoreboards that show them the state of the process and whether they are on track to “win” the shift.

Vorne XL moves medical device operations far beyond manual data capture to deliver critical insights for driving process improvement and actualizing change with 100+ metrics and 20+ data dimensions. Other benefits of XL that customers love include no software to install, no servers to maintain, no recurring fees, and no contracts. Instead you get unlimited users, free technical support, a 3-year warranty, and free software updates. All in an inexpensive, off-the-shelf product.

Key Benefits for Medical Device Manufacturers

Vorne XL is completely agnostic to the type of equipment in your manufacturing process. This is a huge advantage as you can easily apply XL to any process and get the same deep wealth of information. XL includes I/O to integrate with your process, a scoreboard for your operators, and built-in reporting for your managers. Even better, it easily and incrementally scales from machine to enterprise. Monitor your fillers, extruders, grinders, coaters, testers, sub-assembly and kitting lines, or other equipment with one solution, quickly seeing benefits such as:

  1. 1
    Data Anywhere, Data Everywhere Limited access to areas such as clean rooms makes it challenging to get the right information in front of the right individuals. With XL’s embedded web interface, it’s easy to view production data remotely so your whole team can understand how the process is running in real time.
  2. 2
    Flexible Inputs Leverage existing sensors such as photo-eyes, proximity switches, or relays, which can be used without impacting your machines or processes, bypassing any need to change your PLC coding.
  3. 3
    Configurable Reporting In addition to our robust built-in reports, leverage highly configurable custom reporting to provide the exact context and analysis you need to succeed.
  4. 4
    Automated Alerts Automated text and email alerts enable you to push and escalate notifications to the appropriate individuals when they need it, where they need it.
  5. 5
    Universal OEE Capture Availability, Performance, and Quality for each asset on the plant floor, enabling you to seamlessly compare processes, visualize losses, and optimize the scheduling of production runs.
