A pharmaceutical company approached Cooper Perkins with a technical problem they said had been declined by three previous suppliers stating that the desired objective was physically not possible to achieve. Recognizing the challenge, Cooper Perkins spent two weeks developing a mathematical model proving that the underlying physics was indeed possible. Our client, suitably intrigued, approved the design and construction of a proof-of-concept prototype to prove that the performance of the modeled mathematics and physical sciences would match actual performance. Cooper Perkins achieved this satisfactorily.
This device precisely simulates the performance of a wide range of a class of medical devices, which includes precise fluid handling requirements. The system also required an extremely fast pair of control systems, one running within the other, to control target forces, positions, velocities, and accelerations. The finished system included a customer user interface with data visualization, file management, and reporting features.
