Injectronics Corp. is boosting its medical-device packaging ability with the addition of shuttle tray-sealing and pouch-sealing equipment at its Clinton facility.
“We can take a medical part and put it in a tray and seal it so it is ready to go off to sterilization,” said President and CEO Paul Nazzaro, in a telephone interview.
The changes are part of a plan to boost Class 8 clean room assembly and contract manufacturing capabilities. Injectronics offers injection molding and thermoforming.
The dual-shuttle tray sealer is a SenCorp White MD-2420 and features process-control verification. The pouch sealer is a SenCorp White Ceratek P-series 24PVL/2 model and is engineered for medical pouches and precision sealing. The design allows for both front-to-back and lateral pass-through capabilities at any depth.
Nazzaro said Injectronics has transitioned itself out of the automotive market in the last five years and has made big strides to build its medical-device business, which now accounts for more than 90 percent of sales. The company also does some consumer products work.
Both its Clinton and Westborough, Mass., facilities have built on their Class 8 clean room capabilities and Nazzaro said they are exploring expansions in the next two years.
He said concentrating on zero defects and 100 percent on-time delivery has carried over from the automotive end and has “made for a wonderful transition.”
Injectronics is an ISO 132485-registered company that also does design work for medical devices.
