Keaflex has added a dedicated cleanroom at its Hampshire manufacturing facility
Hampshire-based elastomer moulding specialists, Keaflex, has added a cleanroom at its manufacturing facility in order to expand its capabilities.
The new facility will allow the company to mould sensitive parts in a low particulates atmosphere, enabling it to supply to contamination-sensitive industries.
Keaflex has installed with three moulding machines capable of compression and transfer moulding operations and says trimming and packaging can also be carried out within the same room to eliminate any chance of outside contamination.
Keaflex's Managing Director, Andy Tuffield, said the new clean manufacturing area would enable the company to supply customers in the “aerospace, marine, medical and pharmaceutical” industries.
The new facility comes at a time the Hampshire based company is investing substantially in new machinery, including a brand new 250 tonne injection moulding press announced in December last year.
Keaflex specialises in elastomer engineering and provides a comprehensive service for the design and manufacture of elastomer components, including complex 3D mouldings.
