Cadence has announced plans to enhance its cleanroom capabilities at the company’s Plymouth (Massachusetts, USA) and Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) facilities to further support its medical device and life science customers.

Plans include the addition of a Class 8 cleanroom in Plymouth and the expansion of the existing Class 8 cleanroom in Santo Domingo.

‘We bought our first injection moulding machine in 1965. Since that time, we have focused on mission critical plastic products, including parts that actually helped astronauts to walk on the moon in 1969,’ said Jeff Kelly, Vice President and General Manager.

‘We are excited to expand this legacy to better support medical applications,’ he added.

Cleanroom injection moulding using engineered resins will be available on presses ranging from 17 tons to 165 tons in size. The expansion efforts, with expected completion in early May, also creates dedicated space for cleanroom assembly and automation.
