Spectrum Plastics invests in medical molding equipment, personnel

Spectrum PlasticsSpectrum Plastics Group (Alpharetta, GA) has announced that it now offers value-added over-molding capabilities through its Apollo Medical operation in Sandy, UT. Four new injection molding machines have been added. They range in size from 11 to 55 tons and are suitable for reliable injection molding of highly precise products, including dilator and sheath sets. The machines operate in a horizontal or vertical position to produce injection molded products and insert molded assemblies.

“Over molding hubs and luers directly over single- and multi-lumen extrusions allows Spectrum to offer an integrated solution for catheter sub-assemblies,” said Matt Bills, Senior Vice President of Spectrum’s Vascular Technologies division. The Spectrum Plastics catheter center in Wall, NJ, formerly Adam Spence, also has over-molding capabilities, with three injection molding machines in-house.

Spectrum also has hired Chad Rachal as Senior Injection Molding Engineer. Rachal has more than 20 years of injection and blowmolding experience in the medical device industry and will provide engineering leadership of the over-molding operation in Sandy.
