Built with Quality in Mind
Manufacturing medical components require expertise and a high level of process control. One way we have supported this effort is through the design of our facility, cleanroom, and equipment. Achieving the highest quality standards and meeting customer requirements was at the forefront of our past and future design decisions.
World class facilities
Our ISO 7 cleanroom was designed to accommodate multiple injection molding machines and automation while reducing the risk of contaminates. The space is equipped with anti-microbial flooring, 24 HEPA filters, and stainless-steel furniture able to withstand stringent cleaning and regular disinfecting required by our SOPs.
Our white room neighbors our cleanroom and is used for assembly and other secondary operations. We follow the same standards and cleaning protocols as our cleanroom space, and the proximity allows for a seamless transfer from the cleanroom production area.
Chiller and Closed-Loop Monitored Water Treatment
Water plays a vital role in the injection molding process and adds potential contamination risk. Our state-of-the-art chiller system provides a closed-loop system to prevent contamination. The water used in the system is tested regularly and treated as needed to prevent damage to our equipment or your molds.
