Danish plastic manufacturer Carmo has designed and developed a novel turn valve for urine collection bags. The valve is moulded in a single piece, which increases its strength and durability and ensures fully automatic high-volume production in Denmark.
For the production of the Carmo Super Valve Carmo has cracked the code for how to mould a turn valve in one piece, which means that they can cut production time significantly. “As a benefit to us we become competitive in an area, where there is a lot of competition, and we’re doing it with a highly durable and safe product,” explains Anders Johnsen, development- and technology director at Carmo. The manufacturer avoids all intermediate processes where several parts need to be produced and assembled. The product features a high level of durability and uniformity, which makes the valve more secure and resistant to leakage.
Besides the competitiveness of high-volume production, there are more benefits in producing the new valve in one piece. Other valves, which are produced in several parts, are held together with silicone to guarantee density. With the new valve, users minimise the risk of leakages because there are no joints. At the same time, the valves meet the ISO 13485 and the MDR regulations and are produced in medically certified materials to ensure that safety and leak resistance is guaranteed.
Carmo’s specialty is custom-designed products that can be produced in great quantities, and Carmo Super Valve is no exception. This means that the valves can be produced specifically for various purposes and needs, and thereby to specific industries. “It is a rather simple product with a highly important function for both investors and the end user. That’s why it’s essential for us to be able to offer a safe, quality product that can be custom designed to fulfill the customers’ wishes,” says Anders Johnsen.
