Delano, MN-Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical has completed an expansion of its Delano, Minnesota-based manufacturing facility in the US. The expansion includes the addition of a 6,000 square foot ISO Class 7 cleanroom and enhanced silicone molding capabilities.
Due to increasing demand for silicone-molded components, Trelleborg has invested in new presses and other equipment designated specifically for silicone molding, including a material mixing station, cleanroom silicone storage, alcohol wash and tumbling machines and a packaging cell.
Dave Pool, General Manager of the Delano facility, says: “We have increased our capacity for silicone molding while also refining the setup to leverage existing capabilities, such as the in-house tool room, to reduce lead times. The added space also enables us to expand our contract manufacturing capabilities to accommodate the increasing demand for product development.”
The services performed at the Delano facility extend beyond technical silicone and thermoplastic molding to include assembly and secondary operations, in-house tool making, high-precision machining for micromolding and automation. The Delano facility is ISO 9001:2016 and ISO 13485 certified and is also FDA registered.
