Pipette tip

GMP-compliant mass production

The production of disposable medical items such as pipette tips places high demands, not only in terms of hygiene and product quality, but also on productivity. Through the consistent use and individual adaptation of high-end technology, 50,000 parts per hour can reliably be produced.

Mass production of the pipette tips is based on an electric injection moulding machine from the high-performance ALLDRIVE series. In conjunction with mould technology and automation designed for fast cycles, a turnkey solution is created with which highly efficient production is achieved: 64 parts, which leave the system densely packed in trays of 96 units, are produced in only around 4.7 seconds.

Highlights

  • Turnkey solution: clean room cell designed specifically for the mass production of disposable medical items
  • GMP-compliant: electric injection moulding machines in a stainless steel design meet the highest hygiene requirements
  • Precise: lightweight moulded parts weighing 0.35 g with a reproducible shape and tolerances in the 0.01 mm range
  • Productive: high-end technology delivers 20% higher output than standard technology

Process

Clean room technology
In conjunction with an automation solution, the electric ALLROUNDER A injection moulding machine forms a sealed clean room cell. Thanks to the integrated laminar-flow boxes, including ionisation (ISO 3 class), manufacturing takes place under clean production conditions. The complete system is easy to clean thanks to the stainless-steel design.
