Medi-Globe Opens New Production Facility
Modern product engineering under clean room conditions for manufacturing of plastic components for medical technology is used at Medi-Globe’s new production facility in Neuhaus-Schierschnitz, Germany. This is an important step to supply future markets in the field of medical technology and to strengthen the performance of the company.
The reason for setting up a larger production unit was the increased demand for the existing products and the need to install production technology for new projects. The customers benefits currently from brand new silicon (LSR one and two components) and thermoplastic injection moulding capacity with the option of insert moulding and 2K components.
The production area at the new location is enlarged to nearly 2,000m² whereas the clean room production area (ISO 7) has been enlarged to approximately 220m². Thus plastic components with a typical weight of below 1g and 100g can be produced from medical grade thermoplastics and elastomers.
Medi-Globe CardioPlast manufactures one-cavity and multi-cavity moulds in its factory as well as moulds for LSR and insert moulding. We operate the factory under ISO 13485 and have implemented the US standards for good manufacturing practice (GMP).
More and more importance is being placed on the design of a medical device, so Medi-Globe CardioPlast sets new standards in this part of production.
“We detect frequently, that beside a perfect functionality and a high quality, the design of the product is more and more important for selling products,” explains Oliver-Marc Rados, CEO of Medi-Globe CardioPlast. “For this reason we support our customers in finding a successful product design in the phase of product development.”
In diagnostic and treating sectors, single-use products for medical use, called disposables, have to meet stronger requirements in the field of design, and medical devices require increasingly high performance in product design. Modern 3D techniques allow us to provide free-form surfaces inexpensively.
Besides insert mouldings of plastics, the product portfolio is enlarged by tubes (single and multi-laminated) for medical engineering, prototype manufacturing, ETO sterilisation of gas and assembly performance. These are produced within the Medi-Globe Group.
Medi-Globe CardioPlast presented its products and services at Medtec Europe in Stuttgart, Germany — a trade show for suppliers of medical devices — on the 23-25 March 2010.
