Small components play a large role in medical equipment

Several of the companies within the Lesjöfors Group have many years of experience supplying the medical industry. We would like to introduce some examples of spring products specially manufactured for this industry of current interest.

Highly demanded medical components

London, UK – European Springs & Pressings in the UK is one of the Lesjöfors companies with customers in the medical industry. Their medical range includes springs that go into the mouthpieces for ventilators, catheter clips to syringe drivers. Patient beds and trolley systems, instrumentation and numerous electrical components for medical technologies including defibrillators are further examples. ESP manufactures the largest range of springs and pressings in the UK. They have some of the most advanced high-volume machinery available. At peak, the machines can manufacture 5 million springs an hour. Specific production lines have been repurposed and upscaled to manage orders.

Stuart McSheehy, Managing Director comments on the situation: “We have developed tooling and manufactured medical components for the healthcare sector for decades but today’s climate and subsequent increase in demand has highlighted the market share with which we and our customers operate in. Normally validation as a new supplier takes months of trials before volume production but in this very abnormal period we’ve been fast-tracking processes to suit our customers and are beyond proud to be able to play a supportive role in today’s climate.”
