Injectronics Corp. recently completed the addition of a new automated contract manufacturing cell, which was installed in a 2,500-square-foot white room.
Sales and marketing director John Schwab said the company added a PAS automated membrane staking station, a Leica automatic wax filling unit and a Sencorp foil-sealing machine as part of the new cell.
Schwab said the new setup combines injection molding, thermoforming, assembly and shrink-wrapping to make a complete product for an unnamed customer. The cell is for a disposal test kit as part of a system allowing small-tissue samples to be processed for examination.
``I think the integration of thermoforming was a catalyst to build the final kit,'' said John Schwab. He noted that the cell builds on the abilities of a Sencorp thermoforming machine the firm installed in March 2007.
Injectronics also added three employees for the new work cell.
He said sales have grown more than 50 percent since 2006. Injectronics also received a Vendor of the Year Award from XpresspaX Inc. of Westborough, Mass. It makes data storage containers for the company.
Injectronics has an 80,000-square-foot headquarters building in Clinton, plus a 20,000-square-foot facility in West- borough. The company is ISO 13485 registered.
