The University’s manufacturing facility will be open to MSMEs for two years.
What’s it about? Anna University’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will be open to MSMEs from the proposed medical devices park at Oragadam. It’ll allow the companies to scale up their prototypes for clinical validation and production.
- SIPCOT is developing an integrated manufacturing hub for medical devices. It’s partnering with Anna University for technical support.
- The National Hub for Healthcare Instrumentation Development (NHHID) has a limited facility with equipment like a six-axis robot for assembly, a 3D printer, and a laser scanner, among others.
Benefits: For the companies, the infrastructure will help cut costs in the initial phases of development and production. For engineering students, they’ll be able to have internships on their own campus. The university can earn revenue through consulting and testing.
