A major manufacturer of medical diagnostic products required a custom designed mixing well for one of their product lines. The mixing well was to be precisely located in a continuous form in order to automate their sterilization and manufacturing process. The mixing well required specific characteristics such as the ability to withstand a stringent sterilization process. It also required a pocket without weakness or holes (to avoid any potential leaking), and the ability to be cut into individual units, then be inserted into a paperboard sleeve.
After evaluating their processes and the chemicals used in the test, we designed a custom pocket and made automated pocket tape samples out of white HIPS material. The new system allows the customer to send the tape through their automated sterilization process in-house, then to die-cut between the pockets into individual wells before placing them into the test packaging. Keaco currently manufactures over 3 million units annually for this customer. For more information, see the table below or contact us directly.
