We know the regulatory requirements for medical devices, we are aware of the consequences of the GMP guidelines for machine design and documentation, and we have a thorough command of the properties, surface finish and process behaviour of high-performance plastics such as PEEK, PTFE and silicones.
Thanks to our many years of experience in the medical technology industry, we can demonstrate, on the basis of a large number of successful projects, how the balancing act between the highest part quality and lowest part costs, between a high number of cavities and perfect precision is achieved. Our all-electric, high-precision injection moulding machines from the IntElect series with acid and clean-room capability are the perfect fit for manufacturing products in diagnostics, medical and laboratory technology.
- GMP compliant
- Industry expertise
- Vertically integrated manufacturing
- Energy and resource optimization
- Comprehensive market knowledge
- Clean room solutions
Thanks to its design features, the all-electric IntElect injection moulding machine is absolutely reliable and practically maintenance-free. As the risk of cross-contamination with lubricating oils is eliminated, it is the perfect solution for the clean and dust-free production of IV diagnostics, injectors, pipette tips, blood tubes, petri dishes or optical components.
Whether LSR, high-speed injection moulding, micro injection moulding or multi-component technology, a machine from Sumitomo (SHI) Demag can reliably produce complex geometries with precise undercuts and structures as well as small moulded parts with tolerances down to the micrometre range. Thanks to the interaction of high-speed machines and extraction robots, you can produce your parts economically and with the shortest possible cycle times.
We supplement the trust in the reliable machine technology of Sumitomo (SHI) Demag with excellent control mechanisms such as 100% inline quality assurance "on the fly". For our customers in the medical technology industry, this means minimised rejects and higher productivity with consistently excellent product quality. We provide them with an interdisciplinary team of experts. All team members are familiar with the principles of "good manufacturing practice" (GMP) and implement these in practical, innovative machine concepts.
Medical products make special demands on manufacturing processes and machines. Our all-electric IntElect machines with their precise direct drives are particularly suitable for the production of high-precision molded parts. Compared to other all-electric injection molding machines, our direct drives developed in-house increase repeatability without process fluctuations. For special clean room requirements, the IntElect2 is available with a standardized clean room package that reduces particle contamination in the mould area. For product and batch traceability, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag also offers a wide range of integration options, for example for process monitoring for cooling water or hot runner control units.
