Spectrum Plastics Group said today that it has begun to offer value-added overmolding at its Apollo Medical
operation in Sandy, Utah.
The Alpharetta, Ga.-based company added four new injection molding machines ranging from 11 to 55 tons, at Apollo. The machines are suitable for injection molding of highly precise products, including dilator and sheath sets, allowing Spectrum
to operate in a horizontal or vertical position to produce injection-molded products and insert-molded assemblies. Spectrum Plastics’ East Coast catheter center in Wall, N.J., formerly Adam Spence, also has overmolding capabilities, with three injection molding machines in-house.
“Overmolding hubs and luers directly over single and multi-lumen extrusions allows Spectrum to offer an integrated solution for catheter sub-assemblies”, said Matt Bills, senior vice president of Spectrum’s Vascular Technologies division, in a prepared statement.
Spectrum has also added a senior injection molding engineer, Chad Rachal, who has more than 20 years of injection- and blow molding experience in the medical device industry and will provide engineering leadership of the overmolding operation in Sandy.
