Freudenberg Medical recently announced that it has expanded its thermoplastic micro injection molding capabilities by adding an ARBURG micro injection modular machine.
The company added the new machine to meet challenging molding requirements.
“Engineering grade materials can be sensitive to shear and a very fine level of control is needed to produce shot weights under 0.1 gram,” Hamlet Harouronian, project manager and master molder II at Freudenberg Medical, said. “With our new thermoplastic micro molding work cell, we can produce very small shot sizes with great accuracy.”
Freudenberg Medical’s newest machine features robotic part handling with integrated vision inspection systems and integration with the RJG eDART System, according to the company. The RJG eDART System allows for process control and monitoring when in-cavity pressure transducers are built into the mold.
The micro injection molding expansion comes after the company recently opened a business development office in Singapore. The office was opened to help serve existing customers in Asia while growing the company’s footprint in the region by using its production facility in Shenzhen, China.
“Singapore has become a national R&D hub for many medical device and pharmaceutical companies,” David Lab, sales director of Asia-Pacific at Freudenberg Medical, said. “We see significant business potential in Southeast Asia and Singapore provides us with an ideal base to grow alongside the medical device market in this region.”
