Elevating Medical Injection Molding Performance

  • Injection Molding

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, February 23, 2024 - A leading provider of precision machinery and manufacturing solutions, Shibaura Machine announced the release of its Medical Spec injection molding machine at the 2024 Plastec West show in Anaheim, CA earlier this month. This latest innovation is set to improve standards in the medical manufacturing industry, where precision, cleanliness, and efficiency are essential.

This machine represents a significant step in modernizing medical component production. It is specifically engineered to meet medical cleanroom standards, ensuring optimal cleanliness and precision. As a testament to our commitment to enhancing medical manufacturing processes' efficiency and quality, the Medical Spec machine marks a new chapter in the industry's growth.

Key Features of the Medical Spec Machine

All-Electric for Precision and Energy-Savings:

Delivering exceptional precision in molding with energy-saving benefits, the all-electric machine ensures consistent, repeatable cycles, crucial for medical component manufacturing. Compared to traditional hydraulic machines, the machine significantly reduces energy consumption, leading to cost savings and reduced environmental footprint.

Chrome Plated Platens for Enhanced Durability:

The machine features chrome plated platens, which extend the machine's life and maintain a cleaner environment for sensitive medical production. This plating process reduces corrosion and wear risk, ensuring long-term reliability.

Stainless Steel Guarding and Panels:

Understanding the importance of cleanliness in medical manufacturing, the machine is equipped with stainless steel guards and panels. This choice of material significantly reduces particulate generation, maintaining cleanroom standards.

Raised Platform for Easy Cleaning:

The machine's design includes a raised platform (+100mm), facilitating easy access to clean underneath the machine. This feature is critical to maintaining a contaminant-free environment, ensuring that the production area adheres to the highest cleanliness standards.

Special Lubrication Grease (NFS H1 Certified):

We've incorporated NFS H1 certified special lubricant within our automatic lubrication system. This ensures the machine operates smoothly without compromising the cleanroom environment. 

Validated Process Control for Molded Medical Components:

Our machine offers control of validated processes, ensuring each component produced meets stringent medical standards. This includes process parameter control and monitoring, recipe control, shot traceability features, and the integration of Shibaura Machine’s IIoT solution, machiNetCloud.

Machine Performance and Extended Ejector Stroke:

The machine is equipped with an extended ejector stroke (+30mm), increasing its capability to handle a variety of molds and applications. This feature, combined with the machine's overall performance, makes it an ideal choice for producing high-precision medical components.
