GW Plastics is one of the few injection molders to offer the significant benefits of in-house mold design-and-build on a global scale
To reduce costs, improve quality, and streamline customer’s supply chain, the company has invested in robotic-assisted molding technologies, including thermoplastic and Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) molding, multi-shot and multi-material molding, among many others. These technologies result in less contamination, fewer errors, and reduced cost for validation and elimination of secondary operations. The key differentiating factor of GW Plastics is that unlike other companies, GW Plastics readily invests in high-end technology to maintain zero tolerance towards product defects as every patient safety is the topmost priority.
GW Plastics also delivers cost-effective, single-source solutions for precision Liquid Injection Molding (LIM) and manufactures LSR components and assemblies for the healthcare market. LSR/LIM is used in many mission-critical applications where failure is not an option. With vast experience in precision tight-tolerance components and commitment to zero-defect manufacturing, GW Plastics has become the supplier of choice for many organizations.
In one instance, a company wanted to augment its existing medical device manufacturing line and had several other unique requirements. GW Plastics, after studying their product extensively, incorporated sophisticated high-level automation which improved the quality, consistency, and output while reducing the price of the final product. Further, with the simple assembly process and quick final packaging in a clean room seal, the final product was swiftly sent for sterilization and ultimately released for distribution.
GW Plastics is one of the few injection molders to offer the significant benefits of in-house mold at the global level. With state-of-the-art mold building capabilities, maximum efficiency and quality are achieved by using standardized design practices, highly automated work cells, and global cross-training. GW Plastics’ internal tooling capabilities ensure that customer applications perform as designed, consistently throughout the life of the program. The company maintains its customer-centric business strategy to help more organizations offer nimble solutions in the healthcare market.
