Custom Labware Capabilities & Expertise
Our design capabilities include Solidworks and CADKEY. We can translate any CAD format and work with you to develop the ultimate custom product. We can develop a 3D model for you and then create a SLA prototype so you can see exactly what the part will look like before making a commitment to a new injection mold. With the SLA, all the dimensions will mimic actual part so you can perform some basic fit, form and functional analysis. Our goal is to get a mutual understanding of your needs and ours before the commitment is made.
We have 3,000 square feet of a tool shop in house Our equipment includes the following:
- CNC milling machines
- Wire EDM
- Traditional EDM
- Thermoform prototyping
- Optical Polishing
With this equipment we design and develop single cavity molds using MUD insert sets for prototyping or mutli-cavity molds using traditional mold bases with stainless steel construction.
With an in house tool shop we also develop our own automation equipment to reduce manufacturing costs and become more efficient and control quality.
With the tool shop on site there is no down time with your molds. We take full responsibility of your mold and guarantee the operation. This is through scheduled maintenance with your mold throughout its life.
Our molding room is a class 100,000 certified clean room. The molding machines ranging from 50-150 tons with hydraulic and electric machines. Each machine is employed with an operator constantly inspecting parts coming off the molds. All of inspection is done in line during the complete manufacturing process. We can mold a variety of materials including polypropylene, polystyrene, COC, ECTFE, polycarbonate, TPE and EVA. All of these can have color options on request. Our operation is very flexible from molding hundreds of parts to tens of thousands of parts per run. Our machines allow us to offer insert molding and coining operations.
We offer turn-key services, which allow us to deliver complete custom labware to your door without having to do any further inspection or re-packaging. Our assembly area is a class 10,000 certified clean room with services that include: ultrasonic welding, hot stamping, punch and die, corona treatment, vacuum packaging, filter encapsulation, automated UV cure adhesive bonding, membrane conversion and flurophour spotting.
Our turnkey service goes one step further than anyone else. We have a microbiology lab on site where we can perform functional quality control testing with your parts to ensure their performance after you have accepted receipt. Our lab consists of PCR, electrophoresis, DNA gel forming, bio burden validation and plate readers. The tests that are performed are unique to you and mutually agree upon at the start of the project.
Quality Assurance and Control
We have a special controlled room for only this purpose. There is state of the art calibrated equipment to ensure the part meets your specifications. The equipment includes: video inspection, coordinate measurement machine, gauge blocks, gauge pins, venier calipers and micrometers.
