Comprehensive project management
Relying on its specific skills in plastic processing, the management of complex processes (such as the injection of PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone)), the integration of active ingredients in an impregnated matrix, together with its knowledge of assembly and welding technologies, ARaymondlife offers comprehensive support to its customers' projects, from the identification of the need to mass production
A project manager is appointed for each project. A multidisciplinary team assists the PM for the design, industrialization, methods, quality development and regulatory affairs. Project management includes the 4 qualification steps DQ/IQ/OQ/PQ.
Dedicated engineering office
ARaymondlife has an integrated design office which is involved in each stage of new product development.
Knowledge of the health sector and its requirements is a prerequisite in meeting customer expectations for tailored solutions that implement expertise in materials, fastening and assembly systems, and knowledge of the different modes of sterilization.
The project teams rely on creativity and innovation to design either ARaymondlife branded products or products customized for customers in compliance with the relevant international regulations.
Study Coordinator ARaymondlife
My knowledge of medical grade materials, injection and assembly technologies as well as sterilization methods allows me to adapt to the health requirements and specificities of each new project
Before and during the design phases, ARaymondlife conducts prior art search and ensures the freedom to operate for the solutions developed and to see if they are potentially patentable.
Mold making process
ARaymondlife has a vertically integrated tool making capability, with expertise in the design and manufacture of stainless steel molds, coated molds, molds for bi-injection and multi-cavity molds. The design and industrialization departments work in partnership from project conception to commissioning to ensure the optimum tooling and manufacturing solution.
To maintain an optimum level of quality regular maintenance is carried out in house, (molding machines, molds and assembly machines).
Medical Device packaging
ARaymondlife develops innovative packaging for medical devices and particularly for implants. The expertise in the processing of specific materials such as PEEK also offers many opportunities for implant manufacturers who are looking to transfer the manufacture of their implants from machining to plastic injection.
Maintaining sterility and traceability of implants during surgery is an absolute necessity to preserve the safety and health of the patient.
ARaymondlife has developed a multi function packaging for implants:
- Ensure optimal protection of the implantable device
- Maintain sterility and traceability
- Facilitate storage and handling of the implant in the operating room
ARaymondlife's packaging solution offers a double sterile barrier and allows staff to transfer implants safely from the non-sterile area to the sterile area in the operating room. Manufactured in an ISO 5 clean room, this packaging is suitable for different types of implants and is available in several sizes.
Business Development Director
Our specificity is to be able to design an exclusive solution for one customer or an own brand-name product for several customers.
We met several implant manufacturers who were looking for the same packaging solution with a double sterile barrier. The convergence of needs associated with the pooling of volumes has enabled us to consider the development of a standard ARaymondlife product that meets market expectations.
ARaymondlife is certified NF EN ISO 13485: 2016 for the manufacture of medical devices. This standard sets out the requirements of the quality management system that the company applies to the manufacture of products and associated services.

ARaymondlife's expertise is based on the design and manufacture of plastic injection molded parts, with key expertise in the processing of USP Class VI materials and specific materials such as PEEK.
The company is developing its Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization activity focused on the development and industrialization of innovative packaging for pharmaceutical laboratories, medical and cosmetics manufacturers.
Since 2002, ARaymondlife has been supporting the Ceva Santé Animale SA laboratory, one of the major players in animal health worldwide, in its conquest of the bovine reproduction market. The company has used its knowledge of plastic injection molding to develop a unique expertise in the integration of an active ingredient into an injected part.
ARaymondife is the exclusive supplier to Ceva Santé Animale SA for the manufacture of PRID DELTA®* (*Progesterone Releasing Intra-vaginal Device), designed to synchronize bovine estrus.
A unique knowledge and dedicated equipment
ARaymondlife has adapted the injection molding process to prevent degradation of the active ingredient during hot processing of the raw material. The innovative triangular shape has been designed to allow a better diffusion of the active principle, improve the retention of the device, absorb tolerances in the animal, and make it easier to use.
ARaymondlife is a pharmaceutical establishment authorized since 2008 for the manufacture of veterinary drugs.
Manufacturing impregnated matrices with an active ingredient is a unique capability achieved by the plastic injection process that closely binds the polymer and the active molecule. This technology offers a multitude of shape options for the product.
ARaymondlife has made major investments in the manufacture of the PRID DELTA® and for the successive technical developments that have made it possible to support the customer in his market developments.
ARaymondlife has a dedicated workspace, two automated production lines with two injection molding machines and two assembly machines with ultrasonic welding as well as 100% inspection facilities for each part.
Injection in clean room
A 300 m² workspace in clean room is dedicated exclusively to the production of PRID DELTA®.
Virbac has teamed up with ARaymond, a leader in fluid connectors, to develop the connection for the Farmpack™ bag.
Relying on its expertise in this field, ARaymondlife designed a tailor-made solution based on the E-Lock. This simple and ergonomic connection, based on an ARaymond patent for automotive application, has been modified and raised to pharmaceutical quality standards.
This device is integrated into an innovative bagpack designed to safely administer antiparasitic treatments in breeding heards and flocks.
Both removable and reusable, this connector eliminates the risk of leaks and waste of drugs. The E-Lock and Base solution allows 360° rotation and gives the user great freedom of movement.
On behalf of a client specializing in computer-assisted urology and particularly in the diagnosis of prostate cancer, ARaymondlife accompanied the customer in the development of a single-use needle guide.
This class Is medical device is fixed to an endocavity 3D ultrasound probe allowing the biopsy needle to be guided.
Custom-made for the customer, the guide consists of 2 polycarbonate parts injected and assembled by ultrasonic welding.
The streamlined design has been optimized for maximum patient comfort.
This medical device complies with European Directive 93/42/EEC. ARaymondlife assisted its client in obtaining the CE marking and in the 510k procedure.

At a customer’s request ARaymondlife investigated the conversion of a part made by machining to injection molding.
The knowledge of the PEEK injection process along with ARaymondlife's mold-making expertise make this type of transfer possible.
