Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Launches activeCell, a Self-contained Injection Moulding Cleanroom

Oct 08 2012

Sumitomo (SHI) Demag has launched activeCell, a self-contained injection molding cleanroom that is reportedly capable of manufacturing pharmaceutical and medical, single or multicomponent plastic components to ISO 7 (class 10, 0000). The all-electric compact turnkey system comes complete with platen mounted six-axis robot, laminar airflow cabinets for particle free air in the mold-space area and integral packaging equipment. It is installed fully compliant meeting GAMP and FDA requirements as well as DQ, IQ and OQ documentation, and offers manufacturers low-investment entry into cleanroom manufacturing. The system, which is available in 100, 160, 220 and 280 tons formats, helps manufacturers without a full cleanroom facility to expand into ISO class 7 manufacturing. The compact, fully-guarded cell, which has been designed to incorporate a platen mounted robot making the system only 500mm wider than a standard machine, combines technologies from Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s UK-based technology partners Motoman (robotics), AVT (packaging) and Max Petek (laminar flow hood). The system is said to maintain its ISO 7 class 10,000 cleanroom environment with aid of laminar air flow systems which floods the mold surface and part handling areas with HEPA filtered air. Once parts are molded, a six-axis robot transfer’s product to the conveyor system, chute or packaging system as required.
