Empire Precision added injection molding presses

February 22/2011

(Plastics Today) -- Empire Precision Plastics Inc., specializing in high-volume injection molding and mold manufacturing, announced that it is installing two, precision 55-ton Arburg injection molding presses with Arburg automation for an OEM customer with requirements for medical disposables. According to Markus Lettau, director of sales and application engineering for Empire (Rochester, NY), the cells will be enclosed in micro clean rooms which cover the molding machine clamp and automation area (where parts are packaged), to provide clean-environment molding and handling.

About 55% of Empire Precision Plastics business is now medical, which also prompted the company to move forward and become ISO 13485:2003 certified. The certification, which the company received in the third quarter of 2010, will help Empire grow its medical business, and fully participate in the medical market, Lettau notes.
Empire currently operates 42 injection molding machines in a 42,500-ft2 facility. In addition to medical, the company continues to serve the electronics market on which the business was founded, along with industrial components and some consumer components.
