Thermoformed Packaging Manufacturer Develops ISO Class 6 Clean Room
Online PR News – 29-June-2012 – Holyoke, MA – Walter Drake Inc. has developed a Certified Clean Room facility to handle all contamination sensitive production requirements for thermoformed plastic clamshell, tray and blister packaging. While surface contamination is not practical to measure in a cost effective manner, Walter Drake does manufacture ultra-clean thermoformed plastic packaging in a Class 1000 (ISO Class 6) clean room. Walter Drake's clean room certification covers the production area and the pack-out area and includes:
Web cleaning techniques
Ionization and other static dissipative equipment
Class 1000 operating protocols that include numerous access, handling, product packaging, gowning and employee procedures
The 1000 clean room certification stands out in contrast to the industry norm of providing clean room packaging products that are rated, if available at all, at only Class 100,000 and are controlled in the pack-out area only. This is two “orders of magnitude” less clean, and ignores the environment where the packaging is actually made.
Walter Drake provides custom package design with close tolerance, with high-speed production equipment, with ISO 9001-2000 compliant quality assurance protocols and the Class 1000 (ISO Class 6) clean room facility to deliver custom thermoformed clean room packaging.
Walter Drake manufactures custom thermoformed plastic packaging for the medical, pharmaceutical, electronic (ESD, static dissipative), consumer and industrial packaging markets. From your initial concept to your final part, Walter Drake designs and manufactures custom thermoformed clear plastic packagingincluding plastic clamshells, thermoformed trays and blister packs.
