Vomaris Innovations | Customer Testimonial

Transcript: Vomaris Innovations | Customer Testimonial

My name is Mike Nagel, I'm the president CEO of Vomaris Innovations. We've been a Boyd customer for six-and-a-half years. Vomaris Innovations is a medical device company. We're located in Tempe, Arizona. Our flagship technology is biocompatible microcell, a battery technology. So being a unique technology and the next step that we have to take it is the technology has to be super easy to use, for the end-user. We originally went to Boyd. Being a small company, a med device company with sometimes limited resources, we wanted a company that was gonna offer us, you know, unparalleled customer service, some great accessibility, technical expertise, and really the ability to do world-class converting to our technology. With our recent design of our flexi FET device it was a very unique device and it's one size fits all for surgical incisions.

We had several designs that we originally came to Boyd with and what they were able to do on the front end is work with us and determine with us like what was gonna be the most easily manufactured product, what product we would be able to hit the easiest cost targets on, and really the recommendations for the best material for us to use to accomplish our goals. So they were invaluable during the entire process from concept to first manufacturing run.

I'd recommend Boyd for a lot of reasons but really the same things that make any relationship successful, dependability, reliability, and accessibility and the ability to work together and get us rapid designs back. The ability to grow with them in volume we don't have to worry that they don't have the capability when our product really reach another level of volume. They really have all that, all the technology we need right here with one-stop shopping.

Customer service is exceptional at Boyd. On the, anyone on my team whether it be manufacturing, finance production, anybody can get it can get a hold of a wanted Boyd, you know anytime they need or have a question. The other thing too is when we needed to come here, for maybe critical runs where we needed to physically see what would happen they could very rapidly get back to us scheduling manufacturing. So they're just again reliable, accessible, dependable that's the cornerstone of what makes Boyd so unique for us.

I’m Lane Shaver, I’m a field Application Engineer for Boyd.

Well, Boyd has an extensive experience in material selection, engineering, R&D work. In the marketplace today, the prototyping has to be really rapid, and it requires the ability to respond quickly, and be able to make samples for the customer quickly, and so we have various ways to do that; Through laser cutting, water jetting, CNC manufacturing, we can produce samples quickly for customers to get them into production as fast as possible.

So equipment like this is able to bring numerous materials together and register them so that we get an end product that meets a very tight tolerance and at the end of the machine we take it into the cleanroom and hand assemble it into a final part that gets sterilized.

Every part we manufacture is inspected by a camera or by humans and packed: manually packed or mechanically packed depending on how the part is produced.

In the medical industry, it only takes one minor defect to be a problem and so you want to make sure everything they get is a usable product that they don’t have to worry about.

For engineering here at Boyd, we try to interact with the customers and help provide them engineering support.

I work very closely with the customers to provide an engineering process that provides them with the end product that they want and a product that we can produce cost effectively and efficiently for them.
