A contract development and manufacturing firm offering end-to-end services for clients in the medical device and diagnostics markets, Natech Plastics announced that it has installed three new injection molding machines this quarter at its Ronkonkoma, NY, headquarters. The machines will service customers in the medical, pharmaceutical, and consumer goods industries. The new machines are a 470E 112-ton Arburg with integrated robot, Nissei FNX280 with YCII-250 servo-driven take-out Yushin robot, and Nissei FNX360 with a YCII-400 servo-driven take-out Yushin robot. Just four days after installation, Natech was able to begin production, the company said. The new presses give engineers and operators more opportunities to efficiently run data-driven scientific molding for a reliable and repeatable process with little to no variation, said Natech. Scientific molding optimizes the tool design and validates the part’s end use, it added. “Because of the machine’s new technology, we can develop more stable processes. This ensures the processes will yield quality parts for clients,” commented Domingo Hernandez, Plant Manager.
