Netstal receives the title of "Best medical injection molding packaging company" at the Global Excellence Awards 2021 from Global Health and Pharma. For the second time after 2019, the company is being honored for its innovative strength in the field of medical technology injection molding machines and applications. Netstal is a company of the KraussMaffei Group.
Netstal has been named the world's best company for medical injection molding packaging applications in the Global Excellence Awards 2021 by the publication Global Health and Pharma (GHP). This specifically targets primary packaging and drug delivery systems that are used for safe storage and the reliable and uncomplicated delivery of medications. These include inhalers, insulin pens, infusion distributors and pre-filled syringes, which are manufactured worldwide on machines from Netstal. For the production of such mass-produced single-use items, the requirements in terms of precision, shot-to-shot consistency and cleanliness are particularly high. The same applies to the production of disposables for in-vitro diagnostics such as pipette tips, microtiter plates, blood collection tubes and petri dishes.
Netstal was selected after thorough internal research, stakeholder interviews and final evaluation by the award panel. The GHP panel is composed of international representatives from industry, research and journalism.
"It fills us with pride that we have received this recognition in this particularly important business field for the second time after 2019. With the all-electric machines from the Elion series, our application technology system expertise and comprehensive global services, we offer our customers the best overall package for the successful injection molding production of primary medical packaging, drug delivery systems and disposables for diagnostics," says Renzo Davatz CEO at Netstal.
Around the world, renowned manufacturers in medical technology and pharmaceuticals rely on injection molding solutions from Netstal. With Smart Operation, a unique operating concept is available, with which the overall system effectiveness can be additionally increased. The option for the aXos control system enables a guided and safe sequence of individual operating steps in the production environment. Handling specifications, such as Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), are anchored in the control system and reliably adhered to. Smart Operation was introduced in 2018. Today, more than half of all machines are already ordered with the 4-button control.

In the coming year, Netstal will offer a new service with ISO 17025 accredited calibration of injection molding machines. With risk-based calibration by trained calibration personnel, Netstal guarantees proven measurement accuracy of the relevant sensor signals within a defined measurement uncertainty range. The company has successfully met the certification criteria as an accredited laboratory according to ISO 17025.
"Our expertise in the field of high-performance medical injection molding is recognized worldwide. In the coming years, we will continue to expand our technology leadership in this segment with further innovations," Davatz concludes.
