Precision Ventilator Parts and Medical Devices: Rapid Manufacturing to Fight COVID-19

 In FluidForming, Hydroforming, Metal Forming

FluidForming Americas is ready to help alleviate supply-chain stress by partnering with ventilator manufacturers to produce precision ventilator parts and other critical medical devices.

The global spread of COVID-19 has created a growing demand for urgent medical devices and has placed an unprecedented strain on the supply chain.

In March, Bloomberg reported that “Runaway demand for ventilators has laid bare a grim reality for physicians who need them to treat critically ill coronavirus patients: The U.S. doesn’t just have a shortage of ventilators; it doesn’t have enough parts needed to produce more.”

FluidForming Americas — and its FluidForming technology — is uniquely positioned to help during this crisis.

Precision Metal Forming for Ventilators and other Medical Devices

With a 99.996% accuracy and repeatability rate, the FluidForming precision metal forming process is very well-suited to meet the quality demands of the healthcare and medical device manufacturing industry.

Ramp Up Precision Ventilator Part Production with Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing

FluidForming integrates 3D print tooling, making it possible to move from design to production in days. FluidForming’s rapid prototyping capabilities and rapid manufacturing abilities are optimized for low- to medium-volume production. Send us your drawings, we’re ready to form them.

Tubes and Parts: Flexible Metal Forming Capabilities for precision medical devices and ventilators

FluidForming’s metal press, the FormBalancer, is a 4-in-1 metal forming machine that can accommodate both tube forming and sheet metal forming. Ventilator components, structural pieces, bed framing, tubing, ventilator hoods, surgical tools, and components for other medical devices can be produced on a single machine.

FluidForming is a precision hydroforming process that enables rapid manufacturing for precision ventilator parts and other medical devices. FluidForming Americas can help fill gaps in the supply chain by enabling manufacturers of precision medical devices to quickly ramp up the production of critical medical equipment.

Alloy-friendly precision metal forming

FluidForming is a reinvention of the conventional hydroforming process. The bladder-free FormBalancer can accommodate a variety of metals, alloys, and superalloys. Even aluminum alloys which often wrinkle or fracture under the stress of conventional stamping or hydroforming, perform well with the FluidForming technology and process.

FluidForming Americas, Inc. is a member of the Precision Metal Forming Association and is AS9100 Rev D, ISO 9001:2015 certified.
