SARS-CoV-2 has been raging since January 2020 and is spreading at an unprecedented rate. Its insidious properties are a constant challenge to experts. SCHURTER is taking this fact into account and has increased the production of medical products in response to increased demand
SCHURTER Input Systems offers customer-specific input systems such as capacitive and resistive touch panels, capacitive keys, membrane keyboards and complete HMI systems. Our various technologies enable applications in a wide range of applications and in the most diverse markets.
One of the main markets of SCHURTER Input Systems is medical technology. SCHURTER develops and produces control units for ventilators, defibrillators, infusion pumps, X-ray equipment, ultrasound equipment and many other medical applications. The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak also posed major challenges for the plant in Endingen (Germany).
The share of sales in the medical division has more than doubled. Production capacities and resources had to be reallocated in order to make this important contribution in the corona crisis. SCHURTER GmbH primarily manufactures input systems (touch display units), i.e. the operating units for the urgently needed ventilators - and at full speed. In the course of the year more than 300,000 parts were produced for the medical market segment. Among them were around 70,000 control units for ventilators from renowned manufacturers such as Hamilton and Dräger.
As our customers and our own branches were faced with delivery difficulties and other pandemic-related disruptions, we had to increase our flexibility and reliability to a maximum.
Customers rely on SCHURTER's "added value" solutions", and appreciate their robustness, improved readability, the EMC conformity of the industrial touch panels and the durability of the HMI devices. Quality and performance must remain the same - whether with or without a pandemic.
Saving lives with know-how
Thanks to many years of experience and in-depth know-how in secure power supply and high-quality input systems, SCHURTER can also help to save lives in exceptional and emergency situations such as the current COVID-19 pandemic and thus contribute to the recovery of severely affected patients. Not only has the production capacity for SCHURTER medical products been increased, they have been and will continue to be treated with the highest priority in order to contribute to the corona crisis.
