combined with state-of-the-art techniques
In the production of PLHW, the wishes of the customer are central. We all make the same product and yet everyone's wishes are different. Small nuances give the product its own identity, which best suits the customer's vision.
Customer-specific working protocols guarantee the quality of our production in our production labs. PLHW has 2 labs for the production of your products. In our lab, we work according to the latest standards of the ISO Standard 13485 Medical Devices Quality Management System and EN ISO 20345:2011 (CE EN-345).
In case of special wishes for model development, PLHW accompanies the client during the entire process from visualisation to realisation of the product. This can vary from developing own elements in CloudCad to complete insole concepts from prefab to consumables.
Here PLHW has already successfully guided and advised several concepts. We take away the many obstacles for the customer and make the concept clear and simple.
PLHW has an extensive range of materials for the production of orthotics and insoles, sandals and supplements. By cleverly using different material combinations in the milling blocks, the customer can keep the external elements and pads to a minimum.
For our materials, we have had stable partners at home and abroad for many years. We always actively seek the best quality for our customers. All the materials we use meet the requirements for biocompatibility.
Not only milling materials.
- 50 different milling blocks
- 75 different covering materials
- 100 different semi-finished products
- and many sheet materials.
Outsourcing or self-producing, look at more than just material costs. The point at which it is cheaper to outsource than to produce yourself is reached sooner than you might think.
At PLHW you have the option of having us take care of your production or of producing your own using our software.
By making clever use of a podolab, you can have your products manufactured at a favourable rate with minimum effort. As soon as a foot orthosis has been modelled with CloudCad, you can have it milled directly into the desired insole pattern. By making smart use of our different types of milling blocks, you can also have any polsters milled along. Finishing the orthotics yourself is then a matter of minutes.
Of course you can also have your orthotics completely finished. As a customer of PLHW you determine the degree of finishing yourself. For more information about the various ways of finishing Insoles
"In 1999, the first sole was produced at PLHW. Since then we have come a long way, but never forget where we came from."
PLHW has developed a user-friendly software application for the production of orthotics. In this software, which is offered under a small subscription, the practitioner can follow the entire production process from beginning to end.
Depending on the chosen finish, the production of the orthotics takes 3 to 5 days on average.
For the options where PLHW also sand the soles all around, the practitioner can also opt for a full finish with external elements and, if desired, a covering layer. This is all done on the basis of subsequent calculation.
In addition to milling, PLHW is still able to accommodate manual production for lavish, proprioceptive and orthopaedic orthotics.
- The practitioner models the orthotics himself in CloudCad and has them milled only by PLHW. After milling, the orthotics are received clean and cut from the milling block. The orthotics are finished by the orthotist.
- Modelling and milling
- Same as above, however, the practitioner now leaves the modelling of the orthotics to the specialists at PLHW.
- Modelleren, Frezen en Schuren
- Same as above, however, when modelling and milling, PLHW now neatly sands the orthotics into shape.
