CLINTON, MASS. — Injectronics Corp. is purchasing three Arburg 88-ton injection molding machines for its Clinton Class 8 clean room for its growing diagnostic disposables business.

The company said the new presses will be installed in May. It also plans to integrate one of the presses into a fully automatic manufacturing and assembly cell.

"Our engineering leadership, detailed tool development standards, and proprietary MoldPac validation protocol represents key drivers to our growth. We are fortunate to have customer partners that value our passion for perfection and entrust us to manufacture their diagnostic disposable products," said Paul Nazzaro, president and CEO, in a news release.

The company also plans to add two additional machines — with 200 and 300 tons of clamping force, respectively — in the next six months.

All this expansion is part of a continuing cycle for Injectronics, which upgraded both of its plants in the last two years. In addition to its Clinton headquarters, the company has a facility in Westborough, Mass.

Injectronics also recently redesigned its website to provide a more in-depth and visual representation of its capabilities.
