Wittmann Battenfeld bringing micro moulding to Compamed

× Wittman Battenfeld

Wittmann Battenfeld injection moulding machines are laid out for a minimum emissions level as standard and are, therefore, specially suitable for medical technology injection moulding. This applies in particular to the MicroPower, which has been specially developed for manufacturing micro parts. This all-electric machine model, designed as a completely enclosed inner cell, is ideally suited for production under clean room conditions by the very nature of its design. The encasement of MicroPower machines also provides sufficient space for the integration of various equipment options, such as a rotary table, robot, material dryers or temperature controllers. All drive modules of the all-electric drive system including all mechanical components are encapsulated in easy-to-clean housings.

At Compamed in Düsseldorf, Wittmann Battenfeld will furnish evidence of its competence in the area of medical technology in hall 08b, booth F03-05, by producing a micro filter made of POM with an 80 µm grid and a part weight of 1.1 mg, which can be used in micro pumps or inhalators. The micro filter will be manufactured on a MicroPower 15/10 with a clamping force of 150 kN. It is produced in a 2-cavity mould with 3-platen injection.

The machine on display comes as a full-fledged clean-room production cell, equipped with a rotary table, parts removal handling device, integrated quality inspection by image processing, as well as a clean-room module, which produces class 6 clean air according to the ISO 14644-1 standard. The parts are all injected, quality-inspected and deposited inside the clean room.
