Enhanced Production, Quality, Capabilities
MediTECH®, the medical polymers division of Poly Hi
Solidur, Inc., announced the acquisition of a new
state-of-the-art compression molding press and reconfiguration
of its manufacturing area.
According to Mark Evans, MediTECH Worldwide
Business Manager, the new press embodies the latest
compression molding technology, giving MediTECH an
additional resource to meet the current needs of existing
customers and the opportunity to provide new products to
support a growing global market.
“This cutting-edge equipment, which has been designed
to incorporate the best of the processing capabilities and
technologies we’ve developed over the past 30 years, represents
the only compression molding press designed and
built exclusively to produce UHMW for the medical
implant industry,” Evans said.
“Dedicating the press as single-purpose means our cus-tomers
can be assured that product quality will remain
consistently high and supply will be available when
ordered,” he continued. “In addition, it allowed us to incorporate
and build in process controls that no other press in
the world has. The press also has new technologies such
as inert processing and new mold loading built in to
enhance cleanliness and consistency.” The new press will
be fully operational by the fourth quarter of this year.
