UK Medical Equipment Manufacturers Facilities
As one of the UKs leading medical equipment manufacturers, Europlaz occupies 60,000 sq ft and has state of the art, cleanroom manufacturing facilities covering over 9,500 sq ft.
We have seven cleanrooms which are certified to ISO 14644-1 Class 7 and are specifically designed for processing class I and class II medical devices.
Medical Injection moulding of medical grade polymers and dedicated assembly and packaging areas are all controlled and monitored by our Quality Department.
The latest digitally controlled machines are used to deliver high quality mouldings.
Injection Moulding Machines
We use the following machines within our operations:
- Sumitomo (Electric): 35T – 130T
- Krauss Maffei: 50T – 350T
- Boy: 10T
Storage and Warehouse Facilities
Europlaz has two large warehouses available for storage of your product. Our value-added services mean we can store and distribute your product directly to the end user, cutting out additional and inefficient logistic and storage costs.
Design and Project Engineering
Europlaz is a company led by engineers. All our tooling, injection moulding and engineering specialists are located at the same site as our manufacturing facilities. This is to ensure efficient communication and team work.
At Europlaz you will always be able to speak directly to the person most relevant for your needs.
Having a representative prototype of your product at an early stage in the development process provides insight into design features, tactility, function and can eliminate costly errors encountered further in the design process. Europlaz can provide this to you through a full 3D printing service for the production of prototypes, fixtures, jigs and mock-ups.
We offer a full suite of materials that replicate materials from rubber through to metal and can offer extremely short lead-times. As this service is provided solely for our clients as part of our project services, you will benefit from the same expertise working on the 3D prints as those working on full scale production, giving the benefit of ensuring the 3D samples are compatible with planned future manufacturing methods.
Medical equipment manufacturers need to ensure the accurate measurement of components used to manufacture medical devices to ensure the function and compliance of the device.
To meet increased demand in inspection activities, Europlaz has a fully automatic Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), which complements the two existing machines used by the company. This machine offers full three dimensional inspection through both touch and vision sensors which enable complex measurements to be made quickly and easily.
The CMM measures with an accuracy down to 3 microns, or about 25 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. This level of accuracy all but eliminates measurement error. Finally the new equipment is capable of producing full ISIR and Capability reports with its built in software.
Metrology services are provided by experienced staff using calibrated equipment traceable to NIST standards:
- Programmable Contact/Non-Contact Measurements
- Metrology Analysis and Reports
- Capability Studies
- Gage R&R
Since 1970 we have built a reputation for innovation, quality, and cost-effectiveness.
We use our experience and state-of-the-art technology to streamline all stages of the medical device manufacturing process for you – moving your product quickly and safely through development, and speeding up regulatory approval of medical devices.
Our UK-based ISO 13485 certified and FDA-compliant facility means that we have complete control of the process, from under one roof. We are flexible, and resourceful, and can take on projects of any size. Our clients range from small start-ups to international blue chip medical device suppliers.
