When we hear from processors in the medical industry, they usually are asking for help with a handful of different processing issues. If you’re reading this section, then you’ve probably experienced some of these struggles firsthand:
- You’re dealing with black specks or contamination.
- Your teardowns are time-consuming and hurt your productivity.
- You’re running clear parts need to eliminate haze and residue issues.
- You work with super-engineering resins and have difficulty with changeovers.
- You need specialized, reliable products that you can depend on.
- You’re not sure if purging compounds work in your application
Medical and pharmaceutical processors have the industry’s tightest quality specifications and run difficult resins including PVC, TPU, ABS, HDPE, PC, POM, PMMA, PEEK, etc. Scrap is incredibly costly when you’re running expensive resins. Also, you know you need a spotless machine to run acceptable product. Contamination issues and frequent screw pulls further reduce your productivity.
As a medical plastics manufacturer, you likely rely on high-volume output to surpass budgeted profit margins. As one example, special, thin-walled molds for medical plastics parts offer the advantage of high-volume product runs with short cycle times – a necessity since these applications run multiple colors.
However, numerous resin transitions, from thin-walled molding, in particular, result in high scrap rates and production downtime that decimate your profit potential.
Many medical processors assume that these headaches are an inevitable part of the job.
We have good news. It doesn’t have to be that way.
