Delcam’s Powermill CAM software
Muroplás has used Delcam’s Powermill CAM software to develop its own range of medical devices

Muroplás, a specialist provider of medical devices, in particular dialysis products, decided to have its own machining area, allowing the company to manufacture its own moulds. The facility has allowed the company to respond more quickly to customer demands.

Norcam, Delcam’s partner in Portugal, was able to give training, support and technical advice, making the addition of the machine shop easier. Apart from Powermill’s machining capabilities, the company also found the level of support both before and after the purchase beneficial.

In the last decade, Muroplás has invested in further enhancement of its facilities, with new equipment making it even easier to respond to the demanding challenges of the medical industry.

It has also managed to make the step from being just a subcontractor to having its own portfolio of products. Today, the product and mould engineering department at Muroplás is constantly developing new solutions and designing moulds.
