Leading injection moulding equipment supplier, Wittmann Battenfeld (WIBA) UK, will exhibit at this year’s Med-Tech EXPO show. For the first time, the exhibition will be held at Birmingham’s NEC, May 15-16, 2019.
Medical moulding is becoming an increasing part of the portfolio at Wittmann Battenfeld. All aspects of the Wittmann Battenfeld machinery machine range can be customised and made cleanroom ready with automation and quality inspection to match.
Last November saw an ambitious and ‘live’ twin shot moulding cell producing medical parts at the annual international medical show, Compamed, held in Dusseldorf Germany.
The exhibit featured a Wittmann Battenfeld MicroPower 15/10H/10H unit with a four cavity mould unit supplied by Wittner, Austria. The cell also included an integrated rotary table together with camera inspection facilities.
WIBA UK Managing Director Barry Hill says that “we are looking forward to showing the best we have to offer in medical injection moulding. Space does not permit the exhibiting of an actual moulding cell. However, we will be showing video examples of medical work undertaken on our EcoPower, SmartPower and MicroPower injection moulding machines.”
The machine frame cell of Wittmann Battenfeld injection-moulding machines can be enclosed on all sides. The unit thus effectively becomes a stand-alone clean room cell. The internal space provides for automation, rotary tables, dryers, temperature controllers and other product-specific options. The flexibility – and cost-effectiveness – such a unit offers is growing in popularity since its launch.
