Empire Precision: Open Doors for Top 100 Tour
Rochester Business Alliance (RBA) members had the chance to see how plastic medical device parts and optics are manufactured during a tour of Empire Precision Plastics, Rochester, NY, USA. Empire hosted the tour as part of RBA’s Meet the Top 100 series, highlighting Rochester’s Top 100 fastest-growing privately owned companies.
About 30 area business leaders received an up-close look at Empire’s medical injection molding and optical molding capabilities. Diamond Turning Technician John Humnicky presented some recent single-point-diamond-turned prototypes, while his fellow engineers took guests through Empire’s tooling, metrology center, and new fully-automated clean room for contract assemblies.
Empire Precision recently acquired its polymer optics division, adding molding, single point diamond turning and thin film coating capabilities, making Empire one of the only plastic injection molders that manufacture plastic optics in-house. The company also recently added a white room for secondary and assembly services including custom packaging and complete or partial component assembly.
