"Safety first" is an important requirement for the injection molding of medical parts, which strictly demands 100% quality. Even minute defects of the molded component can lead to functional deficits and unreliable operation. Hence, Balda Medical GmbH & Co. KG of Bad Oeynhausen/Germany, analyzes all quality-related injection molding parameters before production start-up and as an integral part of the mold qualification process. The specialist decided to introduce a cavity pressure-based system made by Kistler in order to enhance the process analysis-based quality monitoring of its production of lancet holders and housings for blood sugar monitoring systems. This way, the company can guarantee 100% quality, removes defective parts from the production and avoids assembly problems. This approach also speeds up injection molding production start-up processes after mold changes.
