Gerresheimer Medical Plastic Systems, part of Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH, Germany, is expanding its plant in Dongguan, China, into a competency center for injection molding, printing and assembly of medical devices. The production of price-sensitive products starts at the German plant in Pfreimd, and is then transferred to China by the company’s Production Coordination Unit, which specializes in these kinds of transfers. The production of two lancing devices was already successfully transferred in this way. An important element of the successful transfer was the training program for the Chinese employees.

The entire transfer was coordinated and supervised by the Production Coordination Unit. This includes the layout planning for production and assembly, the entire personnel planning, as well as the capacity planning, machine specification, and qualification. During the transfer phase, the unit also had to address many detailed tasks from packaging to the handling of customs formalities.

In the meantime, the entire process chain for lancing devices has been set up in China. Fifteen injection molding machines, two semi-automatic assembly units including welding installations and six Kent printing machines for the pad printing process are available in China.
