This ongoing investment in new machinery will enable the Beacon team to further scale medical molding operations to support increased customer demand for Single-Use Technology applications in the Bio-Pharma and Life Sciences markets. Following an initial installation of two SE-EV-A series injection molding machines, Beacon MedTech plans to install additional presses in the first half of 2022. Each Sumitomo (SHI) Demag presses comes standard with:
· Direct-drive servo motors on clamp and injection movements.
· Mold parallelism to ensure the mold is square and assembled correctly.
· Front flow control (FFC) to provide precision control to ensure consistent filling.
· Easy integration with automation in dedicated work cells to increase efficiencies.
Each press is outfitted with automation – including standard robots, guarding and conveyors – sourced from Massachusetts-based suppliers with national and global reach. These complement Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s sophisticated injection molding technologies and leverage relationships that Beacon MedTech Solutions Senior Tooling and Program Manager Robert Gove has across the regional medical supply chain. #supplychain #automation
“Sumitomo (SHI) Demag worked directly with our technical and engineering departments to optimize the presses to meet demanding, complex medical product specifications,” said Michael McGee, president of Beacon MedTech Solutions. “This partnership will allow our team to maximize productivity while maintaining the commitment to operational efficiency that allows us to deliver the speed and responsiveness our customers expect.” #medicaldevicemanufacturing
As Beacon MedTech Solutions grows, the company will continue to invest in additional machinery, allowing the team to scale operations and expedite the delivery of vital innovations in Bio-Pharma and Life Science technologies, LSR and Class II medical devices.
“Beacon MedTech Solutions is an ideal manufacturer to leverage Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s technologically advanced injection molding equipment given its focus on complex, highly engineered parts for the Medical, Life Sciences and Bio-Pharma industries,” said Bob Brady, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Medical Business Development Manager. “We look forward to continuing to work together to specify and build additional machines that will expand capacity for high-quality, high-precision components.”
