GW Plastics announced that it has expanded its multi-shot molding capabilities to keep up with its growing medical device business.
The company purchased a number of automated multi-shot machines that are set to be installed in the summer.
Multi-shot molding offers improved ergonomics and performance for medical devices that benefit healthcare companies. Multi-shot molding is also cost-effective and eliminates the need for an entire molding machine in the molding process. It also reduces post-molding assembly.
“GW Plastics has worked closely with our customers to introduce innovative and cost-effective advanced manufacturing solutions, such as multi-shot molding,” said Timothy Reis, VP of healthcare business development at GW Plastics, in a press release. “We have significantly expanded our multi-shot business in the medical device field for improved ergonomics and economics.”
GW Plastics has expanded its Bethel, Vt.; San Antonio, Texas; Tucson, Ariz. and Dongguan, China facilities within the last 2 years. It also expanded its thermoplastics and silicones manufacturing facilities in Royalton, Vt.
“GW Plastics has enjoyed ongoing year-over-year record revenue and we are committed to supporting this growth by investing in our facilities,” said Brenan Riehl, president and CEO of GW Plastics. “We are proud to be a leader in molding and tooling technology and be able to offer our customers innovative, advanced manufacturing solutions.”
