Voxdale (Antwerp, 2005) is a design, engineering and research agency for mechanical and mechatronical development...
Novosanis’ headquarters in Wijnegem now features a newly built clean environment, which was designed and constructed by Voxdale.
The installment is divided into one class D clean area for prototyping and manufacturing Novosanis’ products VAX-ID™ and Colli-Pee™ and one closed-off laboratory to conduct experiments.
CEO of Voxdale Koen Beyers states: "The clean area is installed to reduce the concentration of airborne particles to a minimum by tightly controlling air flow rates, pressurisation, temperature and humidity.
"Contaminants, generated by staff, the production process, the surroundings, and tools are scaled down using overpressure, high-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) filters, and training of staff."
FloEFD computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software from Mentor Graphics was used to define the area’s lay-out and architecture, and optimise the internal fluid dynamics of the room.
CEO of Novosanis Dr. Vanessa Vankerckhoven says: "Working with Voxdale as an engineering partner allowed us to de-risk the project and decrease associated cost for the installation of this class D clean area. It was great working with such a pro-active and creative team."
Quality Manager at Novosanis Timothi Van Mulder says: "The expansion of our clean environment will allow us to upscale our medical device assembly. We are committed to offer our customers high quality products, by investing in the latest technologies."
