Medical 3D Printing and Fabrication of Ventilator Components

Ventilating Equipment Manufacturer – Medical 3D Printing

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. Ventilating equipment manufacturer specialists 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.

Essential ventilator components and parts can be manufactured using various highly specific techniques, designs, and materials. The coronavirus pandemic reminded us about the necessity to be prepared in the event of future urgent requirements for innovative reusable and disposable designs that could be rapidly produced and in large quantities.

3D printed medical devices, and the specialisation of 3D printing PA12 (polyamide 12) parts made through HP Multi Jet Fusion are particularly suited to medical ventilator manufacturing.

Over 50 years supplying the medical industry – Specialising in Machining, fabrication and 3D Printing

IPFL has been part of the medical devices supply chain, collaborating with clients in the medical industry manufacturing medical devices for over 50 years.

We are experts in providing highly accurate devices, crucial for medical equipment that undergo rigorous regulatory testing and approval. IPFL is also working tirelessly to provide fabricated pneumatic manifolds, for scientific analysis and chemical mixing, requiring complex internal track features.

Rapid 3D Printing of Components of a Ventilation System

During COVID, ventilator manufacturing needs pushed the boundaries of what was required, and what could be achieved, and IPFL’s skills and knowledge in providing hospitals across the UK with 3D printing PA12 ventilator components has enabled the company to elevate its position in the marketplace. Combining precision with speed, the company was able to meet the life-critical increase in demand for ventilators and be on hand to supply and urgent ventilator components to keep the machines permanently running.

As a result, IPFL has taken medical ventilator manufacturing to the next level, incorporating speed and durability as essential elements to its overall medical ventilator manufacturing ethos, alongside precision and flexibility. Operating its medical 3D printing services from its Essex based factory, the company continues to evolve, innovate, and produce ventilator components that can offer increasing levels of strength, durability, and versatility.

This knowledge and expertise are then repurposed across many other industry sectors, such as aerospace, automative and consumer goods.
