Fineblanked Ventilator Part ProducedMay 14, 2020
According to a press release on the website of metal former Precision Resource, the firm recently supported the response against the COVID-19 pandemic through the delivery of fineblanked critical components used in General Motors’ mass production of portable ventilators. At its Canadian facility in Cambridge, Ontario, Precision Resource fineblanked this outer cap from medical-grade aluminum. The cap is used in the oxygen subassembly of Ventec Life Systems’ V+Pro ventilators.
“After being engaged by our customer, Linamar,” the press release notes, “we constructed a tool in our technical center, and production launched 8 days later—an amazing feat in the fineblanking industry.”
