PLITEK® received the inquiry from a medical device manufacturer and was able to extrude the material and create prototypes in one week. The process started with customer’s urgent request for backing cards made from medical grade HDPE film. Due to material long lead time, delivering prototypes would take weeks. However, our ability to extrude medical grade film in an ISO Class 8 clean room, along with the ability to create prototypes using a digital knife cutter provided a much appreciated solution saving our customer’s project.
The next step was producing production volume parts. PLITEK®’s ability to extrude the film at the thickness and color needed, reduced lead time for “sourced” film from 8 weeks to 2 weeks using PLITEK® extruded film, allowing rapid product launch and adding 10% in cost savings.
PLITEK® manufactures a variety of packaging/backer cards for a variety of medical applications. Utilizing ISO Class 8 clean room film extrusion and converting capabilities, we can manufacture small prototype quantities all the way to high volume.
