Medical, dental & life sciences
Our experience in injection moulding for medical, dental and life sciences stretches back more than 25 years - and we've continued to innovate ever since
Our experience in injection moulding for medical, dental and life sciences stretches back more than 40 years - when AKI was part of the American Nalge Corporation. These sectors have formed a major part of our product range ever since and we've continued to develop what we can offer to meet customer demand.
We have a range of moulding machines to deliver mouldings of all shapes and sizes, including micro mouldings which weigh less than 1g. Our approach has always been to innovate and lead the industry. This is demonstrated by the leading role we've taken in numerous European-funded and PERA-backed research and development projects.
Injection moulded needle syringes to remove 5 billion uncontrolled & life threatening intravenous needles from public use and waste streams. This low cost, plastic syringe needle is suitable for subcutaneous insulin injection but too short for intravenous drug injection, so can be made sharp safe without the need for special disposal requirements.
Development of a cost-effective, high-performance system for the treatment of open wounds. The official project description was An affordable and more effective negative pressure closure treatment for chronic ulcers to improve patient mobility & quality of life.
