Carclo Technical Plastics Press Release, January 28 2020
Press release London (UK), 28 January 2020: Carclo Technical Plastics (CTP) announces that it will be exhibiting at the Med-Tech Innovation Expo in Birmingham, UK, 1-2 April 2020, on stand no F17. CTP will also be presenting the use of state-of-the-art Pressure Sensing technology for optimisation, monitoring and control of the Injection Moulding process, see attached photo. As part of a major project to develop and scale up manufacture of a drug delivery device in partnership with Becton Dickinson (BD), Carclo has invested significantly in advanced process monitoring equipment and personnel training/development, aimed at improving injection moulding process control and reducing costs of Quality Assurance and waste. CTP has installed RJG’s in-mould Pressure transducers and e-Dart™ process monitoring software on its Fanuc range of all-electric injection moulding machines. Widespread use of these technologies has been made through the Process Development and Validation phases of the project, supported by existing metrology and statistical analysis using commonly available tools such as Minitab™. BD has, in parallel, assessed several of CTP’s global manufacturing facilities as part of its “Fewer, Better” vendor management program in conjunction with CTP’s own Continuous Improvement activities. Commenting, Divisional Chief Executive Officer Robert Stutzman stated “Carclo Technical Plastics has aggressive plans to continue developing our medical business, supported by Carclo’s engineering skills, global footprint and financial stability. CTP considers the Med-Tech Innovation Expo as a key part of our annual marketing activities and we invite all customers and prospective customers to meet with us during this show.” CTP is a contract manufacturer which specialises in injection moulding and assembly of thermoplastic components and devices for the medical and optics markets.

Med-Tech gives us the opportunity to show and discuss the types of services that Boddingtons Plastics can offer to our customers. We've seen really good footfall and had several new leads for new devices. The show has been a great success for us and in fact we've booked for next year already.
MedTech Innovation Expo was a fascinating event that gave us new insight and inspiration into the challenges we face and, more importantly, into the solutions to solve those challenges. We’ve already marked the event on our calendar for next year and we can’t wait to see what progress has been made… and perhaps, more importantly, what progress we can aid with our Aether Engine technology!
It was great to speak at this excellent event, very well attended by the NHS and Industry, well organised and plenty of opportunities for networking. Looking forward to coming again next year!
We’ve managed to get a lot of interest of people... It’s a lot bigger than what we expected, and we’ve managed to find unexpected partnerships with companies we didn’t even know existed. We were here last year but we weren’t exhibiting, and we were impressed with the quality and quantity of exhibitors, so we thought it was worth it this year.
