Integrated poka-yoke function. Additive manufacturing as an industry of the future espouses the concept of lean manufacturingmethodologyy. Poka-Yoke is any mechanism in a Lean manufacturing process that helps avoid errors. This technique has become one of the most powerful work standardization techniques and can be applied to any manufacturing or service industry. the goal is to prevent the occurrence of errors and defects, it is universally applicable and proven to be a real efficiency factor. Poka-Yoke ensures that the right conditions exist before the execution of a process step, thus preventing defects from occurring in the first place. When this is not possible, Poka-Yoke performs an investigative function, eliminating defects in the process as soon as possible.

Designed in compliance with FDA guidelines for direct and safe production of skin contact components.
