Pharma Tech Industries offers broad range of contract molding services
Pharma Tech Industries (PTI), the largest pharmaceutical contract manufacturer and packager of powder products in the world, offers an expansive list of contract molding capabilities to complement its manufacturing and packaging operations. PTI can mold bottles, caps, healthcare packaging components, and medical devices for both external packaging projects and those being performed in-house.
Utilizing cGMP environments and procedures, PTI can handle a range of contract molding assignments – from simple to complex, and from low- to high-volume. For comprehensive drug manufacturing, container molding and product packaging projects being performed fully through PTI, this contract molding can drastically reduce lead times and speed to market, while at the same time reduce costs associated with supply chain coordination and transport.
Pharma Tech Industries’ molding capabilities include:
- Single and bi-component injection molding
- Injection blow molding
- Compression molding
- Profile extrusion
- In-mold labeling
- Insert Molding
- Liquid Injection Molding (LIM)
- Mold and tool shop for customized solutions
- Scientific Molding
Pharma Tech Industries’ molding capabilities are performed, in varying combinations, across the following categories:
Plastic Caps, Closures and Bottles: PTI can design and manufacture customer-specific bottles in various colors, sizes and shapes to house both powders and liquids. Its comprehensive process includes low-cost thermage and label decorating. Plastic caps and other bottle closures – such as sifters for powder products – are molded in high- or low-density polyethylene and can be produced in virtually any color desired. PTI’s standard two-piece closure sizes are 43mm and 33mm but, like its bottle molding operation, almost any request can be accommodated via custom design.
Medical Devices: PTI has more than a decade of experience manufacturing Class I and Class II medical devices in an FDA-regulated environment. Start-to-finish capabilities include product design and development; validation services, such as qualification for installations, operations and performance; and in-house lab testing. All of PTI’s medical device molding environments are FDA-regulated and audited.
Healthcare Packaging: PTI can mold a wide variety of healthcare packaging solutions, including dental floss packaging components and containers, snap and latching closures, living hinges and multi-piece assemblies.
From Part Design to Mold Servicing: PTI’s Mold and Tool Shop
Pharma Tech Industries offers a full-service in-house mold and tool shop whose design team is dedicated to achieving innovative mold design, maintenance, and assembly systems. PTI’s innovative engineering solutions combine design objectives with real-time manufacturing experiences, including solid modeling, unit cavity prototypes, computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM).
PTI’s mold maintenance practices such as blue wave ultrasonic cleaning and in-house mold refurbishments extend product lives, and a dedicated team of engineers can design custom assembly automations to meet packaging needs from material selection and scientific molding to press-side assembly and, if necessary, part and mold modification.
