Medbio knows that over 80% of the injection molding process is dedicated to cooling molten plastic. The cooling process, that begins as plastic first enters the mold, needs to be controlled in order to properly bring the amorphous plastic back to its solid state. Precision temperature-control units coupled with cavity pressure profiles that cater to the plastic’s unique morphology are key to producing the high quality plastic injection molded components that are required in today’s medical devices.
Due to the challenges of maintaining a clean room molding facility, Medbio uses pressurized water in place of particulate-matter-generating, oil-based, heat-transfer fluid systems. Other benefits of this strategy include: More efficient transfer of heat from the mold when compared to higher-viscosity, heat-transfer fluids, as well as avoiding the unnecessary disposal of spent fluids.
Material is pre-dried in a modular Motan-brand desiccant drier. Arburg- brand driers are used press-side to dry and convey resin to the molding machines. Resin is bathed in desiccated air as it resides in the receiver on the feed throat of the molding machine. We do not use a central material handling system. By using the press-side drying concept, we are able to control cross contamination that is inherent in central material handling systems.
Medbio is well-versed in the molding of resins used in the medical and biotechnology industries. Some of the resins that our staff have experience with are the following:
This list is not all inclusive.
Due to the low to mid-volume nature of many medical, surgical applications, we have had to adapt. Medbio uses modular tooling whenever possible and change-over times have thus been minimized. Historically, we average approximately 1 change-over per day, per machine.
The medical device molding processes that are developed at Medbio are “data driven”. Each production-intent mold undergoes a series of studies in order to determine optimal processing conditions. Our technical staff is well versed in “Scientific” molding principles. Our molds are built to accommodate “Scientific” processes that can accommodate variation and are repeatable over time.
