Limbitless Solutions has delivered prosthetic devices to 40 children since its inception in 2014 and is working to fit another 25 limbs this year. By adding a Tormach 770M mill to machine molds in its manufacturing lab, Limbitless Solutions can create aluminum injection molds to be used on the company’s vertical molding press. The company also uses 3D printers to produce small parts.
“It’s hard to buy small quantities of anything, especially with the current supply chain challenges, so we decided to bring machining capability in-house,” Dominique Courbin, director of production, told Plastics Today.
With its continued growth, Limbitless plans to create limbs for adults and facial-controlled wheelchairs for patients with the neurological disorder amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
