Sumitomo Demag Plastics Machinery’s activeCell is a self-contained injection molding cleanroom for the manufacture of pharmaceutical and medical, single or multicomponent plastic components to ISO 7 standards.
The system maintains its Class 10,000 cleanroom environment with the aid of a laminar airflow system that floods the mold surface and part handling areas with HEPA filtered air. Once parts are molded, a six-axis robot transfers product to the conveyor system, chute, or packaging system as required. The final element of the system is an AVT integrated packing system, which bags multiple products in the controlled conditions before they exit the machine.
It is installed fully compliant and meets GAMP and FDA requirements, as well as DQ, IQ, and OQ documentation. The system is available in 100, 160, 220, and 280 ton formats and will help manufacturers without a full cleanroom facility to expand into ISO Class 7 manufacturing.
