ABSTRACT
The article reports on improving quality control in medical devices in Great Britain. It states that the introduction of an integrated system for individual handling and marking of workpieces and consistent machining capabilities are prerequisites for automated supply-side management on an industrial level. The transformation of the mostly manual production steps for cardiovascular-stent manufacturing to fully automated, high quality industrial output is of utmost urgency.
