Extrusion

Vosfox Medical can provide you with extrusion services. We have a small-scale extruder for producing medical devices, intermediates, or parts. The extruder itself is located outside the cleanroom, while the products can be collected inside a cleanroom and packaged. We can make different shapes of polymeric products, for instance, tubes, rods or filaments. Let us know what form you need and which type of material, and we will let you know if we can make it.

Our Extrusion Capabilities

Our flexible small extruder can be used for different purposes. If your application is not listed here, let us discuss if we could make your application, We are happy to try it for you.

  1. Medical grade filament for 3D printing
  2. Pre-extrusion for compression moulding charges
  3. Short rods

Small-scale production in a cleanroom environment

Our extruder is relatively small, which is advantageous for small orders or expensive raw materials. The waste material created during the start-up and stop of the extruder is therefore reduced.

The extruder is outside the cleanroom, but the critical parts (like the filament winding) are in a clean environment, making this extruder suitable for medical device production.

If the quantities you require of your product outgrow our extruder, we can jointly discuss if we grow with you to a larger extruder or if we support the transfer to another CMO.

Extrusion Materials

Examples of materials that we can extrude are listed below. However, we can do or try any material or composite you need for your application. Additionally, we can support you in finding suitable material.
