Manufacturing Ventilator Components
High-performance ventilators play a vital role in the management of patients in critical care with severe respiratory illness, such as the coronavirus, COVID-19. Ventilator component manufacturers are part of a crucial supply chain in the medical industry supplying ventilation units to hospitals and medical centres across the UK and Europe. These ventilators will help people in intensive care units in the critical stages of Covid-19 by maintaining their respiratory function.
Ventilator components can be manufactured using various highly specific techniques, designs and materials.The coronavirus sparked urgent requirements for innovative reusable and disposable designs which could be rapidly produced and in large quantities. 3D Printing PA12 parts made through HP Multi Jet Fusion are particularly suited to these requirements.
