Five FANUC injection moulding machines are new arrivals to the company, four were delivered on-site in the course of February 2021 and are now fully commissioned in the Boddingtons Class 7 cleanroom and another is due to arrive in June.
The new order involves a combination of tool transfer and new tooling. The bulk of the moulding work at Boddingtons will be for the production of components for pharmaceutical devices that are used in the testing of bacteriological, viral and cell cultures as well as a multitude of analytical processes.
Boddingtons CEO Andy Tibbs said:
“Our Class 7 cleanroom is ideally equipped to handle this important and challenging work.
“The pharmaceutical sector is a very close cousin to the medical device industry and Boddingtons is delighted to have secured several contracts – with more in the pipeline for the future.”
Boddingtons manufacturing services have been in demand for emergency medical supplies throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The company’s state-of-the-art production and extensive medical certifications and standards have ensured a speedy throughput for all kinds of healthcare production needs.
