Cleanroom expansion installation complete
1 November 2021
Barnstaple cleanroom manufacturing has significantly increased its capacity with the recent addition of a new 300 tonne machine. However the growth in this area of plastic injection moulding continues to grow and as a result the next phase of expansion planning is already underway.
A fully validated EN14644 class 7 (10,000) cleanroom
The growing needs of plastic injection moulding contained within a cleanroom, has seen a growth area for Tex Plastics Barnstaple. Initially with a modular cell approach the cleanroom moulding facility has grown with customer demands. However, with a resurgence in UK medical device manufacturing, as well as other electronics plastic injection moulding, the Tex Plastics management team is now revising plans to remodel large aspects of the generic and white room moulding facilities.
Smaller volumes of cleanroom plastic injection moulding
There seems to be an appetite for plastic injection moulding in a cleanroom environment for smaller volumes. This is a niche area Tex Plastics has capitalised on, largely as a result of working with medical device manufactures to develop prototypes and initial production run quantities.
