To meet current market demands for shorter lead times for product manufacture and delivery, Virospack
has announced its investment in next-generation machinery. Two new machines benefiting from laser technology—which offers faster production speeds as well as precision cutting—have been installed in the glass section of Virospack’s Barcelona factory and are already at full capacity. Six new lines, two of which are already working, will shortly be installed in the company’s new production unit in Barcelona, according to Virospack’s expansion plan. According to the supplier, these new machines offer the fastest production of glass pipettes available in the market.
“Last year we manufactured 52 million units and now we have the capability to produce over 70 million pipettes,” said José Brocal, head of the glass section at Virospack.
