Discover the Moulding process
Our moulding and tooling teams can produce any kind of plastic medical device, instrument or component that is required, from the smallest of widgets to large-scale, complex assemblies. We offer a complete manufacturing process, tailored to our medical sector customers’ exact needs and delivered across three shifts working round the clock, five days a week. This allows us to reduce lead times without compromising on quality.
The process starts with a full customer briefing, during which a full specification is taken and a design and manufacturing plan developed. Once we know exactly what is required, we can make informed recommendations about tooling configuration and polymer selection to produce the best results. We then produce 3D prototypes that allow us to make further adjustments to the design until everyone is satisfied. At that stage, the main manufacturing production goes ahead and we work to fulfil the order using the approved mould and following the agreed schedule. The plastic injection process is then completed with a full round of quality checks.
Benefits to the medical sector
Plastic injection moulding offers numerous advantages to the medical and healthcare sectors. The plastic injection moulding process can be used to manufacture a huge range of essential medical items, including:
List of medical products that have been Injection moulded
- Implants and orthopaedic devices
- surgical instruments
- diagnostic and patient monitoring components
- medicine delivery systems
- ophthalmic devices
- medical packaging
The finished results are durable, flexible and have a long useful life. They can be sterilised easily, moulded to fit exacting specifications to meet the complex needs of the medical sector. Modern plastics offer increased versatility and greater resistance to pressure and heat. The plastics can withstand contact with potent chemicals and lend themselves to the delivery of medication doses that must be totally accurate and consistent each time they are administered.
We serve other sectors too
As well as working to create an extensive range of tools and plastic moulded components for the medical and healthcare sectors, we also work across several other industries, including automotive construction, military, retail, agricultural, packaging and lighting.
