The medical industry is a fast growing one. In addition, the industry has ever increasing needs to be met with the growth of the population it serves. Whether you need compressed air or automation solutions, your medical needs are supported by John Henry Foster.
The Medical Field and Air Compressors
Air compressors are absolutely necessary in the medical industry. In fact, air compressors assist your local dentistry practice and the operating room of your closest hospital. Compressed air is used in many different areas of the medical industry.
They can assist in patient breathing during operations. Even more, they are used to generate pressure of medical devices. These devices range from blood analyzers to respirators. In addition, air compressors also generate power for hand-tools like nail guns and impact hammers that maintenance uses to repair structures around hospitals, doctor’s offices, and dentist offices.
Providing quality air is extremely important. Air filtration systems assist in producing clean, dry air for patients.
Medical Industry and Automation
Robots can be used in medical device manufacturing. During the manufacturing process, robots are able to assist in:
- Pick and Place
- Packaging and Palletizing
- Machine Tending
- Surface Finishing
- Injection Molding
- Screw Driving
- Lab Analysis and Testing
- Gluing, Dispensing, and Welding
Even more than robots, automation technology helps improve the efficiency of medical supplies. From more affordable oxygen ventilators to mask producing machines, automation makes every system more efficient. The right valve for your equipment increases efficiency and savings exponentially.
