Class 7/8 cleanroom is a Significant investment for Tex Plastics Barnstaple
Medical products are a key area of growth for Tex Plastics Barnstaple, which has resulted in the investment of a modular cleanroom. Housed in the cleanroom manufacturing cell are two Arburg injection moulding machines, so when one machine needs decommissioning or servicing, it can safely be done without affecting any of the other processes.
Cleanroom production for an injection moulding process
The investment in the new cleanroom cell allows Tex Plastics, one of the South West UK’s premium injection moulding specialists, to meet the customer driven requirement that clean air is supplied at the critical point of production and reduces contamination by significantly limiting the areas of machinery that are exposed to the external environment during tooling changes. This limits downtime for cleaning, reduces risk of contamination and increases productivity for the Barnstaple plant in the production of medical and related components.
Helping create specialist maufacturing processes for the production of plastic components for Electronics, Life Critical, Medical sectors.
The cleanroom is now fully operational, complimenting an already comprehensive ‘concept to completion’ project solution for all conventional, white room and cleanroom thermoplastic requirements. It’s important to generate new interest from the market to further expand our customer base.
