Age Industries has a state of the art production facility located in Kanjikode, the industrial hub of Palakkad district surrounded by many supporting industries and businesses. The production infrastructure is situated in an area of 5.85 acres with 50,000 Sq. Ft. of built-up area.
Age Industries has a well built laboratory to test the incoming raw materials, in process quality checks and Final Gloves Testing as per standard ASTM D 3577 / EN 455-I/II , IS 13422: 1992 & IS 4148: 1989(reaffirmed 2011)
The very knowledge of the fact that the products are intended for the medical use has given us no chance for a second thought on defining the manufacturing process and hence we adopted the guidelines of GMP for manufacturing Medical Devices as the basis of the process environment. It was also imperative that we need to follow certain methodology to attain the FDA and CE approvals.
The manufacturing process can be defined basically in to three stages:
All production materials that are procured after undergoing the 'Material Selection Process' are subject to strict 'Inward Quality Checks' by Quality Control and Assurance Department. The quality check process involves in house laboratory checks of all the materials for verifying the intended value for performance.
The raw materials drawn from the store are subject to 'Production Quality Check' and accepted materials are prepared through compounding of latex, milling of non-toxic chemicals, coagulant etc. The prepared materials are subject to lab test for ensuring the intended value for performance, quality and quantity.
An elaborate production process to ensure that every piece produced in the plant is of extremely good quality and meets the defined criteria for production quality and quantity. The automated plant with sophisticated instrumentation automatically controls the production process which enable plant to produce materials with great accuracy and consistency.
Every glove produced in the plant undergoes an extensive leaching process which ensure that the every glove produced are removed of all non rubber particles and any other residues to make sure that an extremely safe glove is produced. A controlled vulcanization process ensures the consistency in physical characteristics defined. The USP grade bio-absorbable dusting powder is used for powdering the gloves which gives a very smooth donning experience.
The gloves stripped are further tumbler dried to remove of the any extra powder and also to remove any excess moisture content for ensuring physical properties and shelf life.
A stage wise On-line quality checks ensures that the batch process are within the control at any given time of the production cycle and every piece produced by the plant is consistent in specification.
The post production process consists-.
The quality and durability checks involves watertight tests, tensile strength test etc.
Every piece produced in the plant is subject to stringent material and physical inspection to ensure that our gloves are absolutely safe for use. The inspection also ensure that the gloves produced fall very much within the international rating of AQL1.5.
Finely selected packing material stored under controlled storage and procedures are used for packing the gloves for absolute safety and convenience. The gloves are packed in a controlled clean and dust free environment.
The sterile class gloves are sterilized in E.T.O sterilization unit.
The packed material are stored in purpose built storage space for easy retreaval and FIFO method is used to ensure the longest shelf life is made available to the customer.
