Lercher has moved into medical technology with a turnkey system from ARBURG and in-house clean room production facilities and now produces dental plastic parts – precisely and hygienically.
The ALLROUNDERs in the hybrid HIDRIVE series guarantee precision thanks to their servo-electric toggle and hydraulic injection unit.
A docked injection moulding machine and packaging in a clean room enable sterile production and delivery.
For clear traceability and quality control, the ALLROUNDERs are cross-linked with a host computer system.
“ARBURG is an essential partner for us. In our successful turnkey project, we are benefiting from their extensive experience and knowledge, particularly in automation and medical technology.”
Mag. Sandra Ender-Lercher, Managing Director of Lercher
Lercher has moved into medical technology with in-house clean room production facilities and a hybrid ALLROUNDER. This meant introducing the medical standard in addition to the existing IATF 16949 certification. Lercher plans to follow up the first turnkey project with other projects for a variety of dental items. This requires precision so that there are no problems for end customers in the areas of quality or sterile packaging, for example.
Two clean rooms are combined to produce the dental technology components. The ALLROUNDER 520 H is docked directly to a class 8 clean room. Two clean-air modules with main and pre-filters are fitted above the clamping unit and the robotic system housing. The KUKA six-axis robot removes the moulded parts and places them on a conveyor belt. The parts, which have been combined to form an assembly, are transported to the second clean room, where they are subsequently inspected and assembled into the finished packaged goods. Lercher builds its own moulds. In addition, all the machines are cross-linked with a host computer system via OPC-UA and equipped with reject switches to ensure accurate traceability and quality of the delivered parts.
Are you looking for a similar solution? We will be happy to advise you.
A total of four machines are planned for the final expansion of the system. Due to their characteristics, larger multi-cavity moulds can also be combined with smaller machine sizes, making clean room production for several product variants a feasible option.
Maximum precision, cleanliness, clean-room concepts? You can be sure that we will find the right medical technology solution for every application. For example, electric ALLROUNDERs in a stainless steel version or our freeformer.
