Rotor Clip Company Inc. said April 2 that it is expediting production and shipment of its parts to customers producing critical medical equipment such as ventilators, desperately needed to treat COVID-19 patients.
Ventilators are in short supply throughout the U.S. Patients undergoing treatment for COVID-19, a respiratory disease, rely on the devices to assist their breathing.
Rotor Clip manufactures a line of inch, DIN, ANSI metric and JIS retaining rings, constant section rings, spiral retaining rings, wave springs and hose clamps.
In a press release, the company said it is “giving its full support to customers that produce medical components or equipment needed to treat or halt the spread of COVID-19. Rotor Clip is dedicating time and resources from engineering, supply chain, production, QA, and logistics to expedite its parts to customers producing much-needed medical equipment such as ventilators or filtration systems among others.”
To facilitate their needs, Rotor Clip setup a webpage for customers to start the expedited process: http://solutions.rotorclip.com/medical-covid-support
An array of Rotor Clip’s OEM and tier 1 customers tasked with building such equipment have already taken advantage of the expedited process, the company statement said.
“In one instance, an OEM reached out to Rotor Clip to supply critical wave springs needed for their current ventilator production project. In only two business days, Rotor Clip was able to produce and obtain quality approval to ship these parts,” according to the press release.
“We will put our full resources behind any customer producing components for essential medical devices needed to combat and treat the Coronavirus,” Craig Slass, Rotor Clip co-president, said in the statement.
