Quality and Efficiency learned from the automotive industry
Micro-X has taken the world leading principles of the automotive industry such as, lean manufacturing, continuous improvement and built-in quality and applied them to medical device manufacturing.
Micro-X’s highly skilled production operators are cross-trained throughout multiple areas of the company which allows the company to react flexibly to high demand with short notice. The production system has been designed to build multiple products at once with short lead times, something that today’s market demands.
The application of these global best practices along with the highly skilled workforce in Micro-X’s CNT x-ray tube manufacturing has resulted in a lower cost, high yield production line. This line can be expanded to multiple CNT tube designs and the much higher tube production volumes which future products will require.
