Wittmann Battenfeld adds demonstration clean room

Sept. 6, 2016

Wittmann Battenfeld Inc. has added a 672-square-foot demonstration clean room to its U.S. headquarters in Torrington, Conn. It will house two of the company's molding machines — a special clean room edition of its EcoPower SE 110/350 and a MicroPower 15/10 micromolding machine — as well as a W821 robot. The clean room will be officially opened during Wittmann Battenfeld's innovations workshop and open house, scheduled for Oct. 5-6.

The company's medical customers can visit the clean room to see the units in action. Both the EcoPower and MicroPower machines are fully electric. All parts that require lubrication are completely contained. The MicroPower can be equipped with a module to create its own self-contained clean room, complete with its own closing cover, clean-room filter and blower. The filter provides Class 6 clean air according to ISO 14644-1.
