Precision Coating Company, Inc. (PCCI), a subsidiary of Katahdin Industries Inc., will be exhibiting at the upcoming Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West expo.
The event—the world’s largest annual MedTech event— will be held in Anaheim, California from February 7 – 9, 2017 (Booth #2296).
PCCI will be unveiling its expanded medical coating capacity with the addition of a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Costa Rica, slated for a grand opening in May, 2017. Headquartered in Hudson, MA, Precision Coating provides two types of medical grade fluoropolymer (polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE) coating chemistries for medical devices; an aqueous-based PTFE coating and a solvent-based coating. Precision’s automated coating process holds extreme close tolerances and provides shorter lead times.
Bob DeAngelis, President of PCCI, said, "The medical device market continues to grow at an astonishing rate. With the advancements in technology and manufacturing capabilities, medical device manufacturers are seeking accelerated time to market, high-yield, and cost control. The opening of our new manufacturing facility in Costa Rica and increased R&D activity focuses on innovation in PTFE formulation and deposition control, among other coating-related challenges faced by the medical industry. PCCI bolsters its commitment to serve a broader customer base across the medical device products continuum—from design and quality control, to high-volume commercial manufacturing—all under one roof, delivered per customer specifications and technical data sheet.
