Bunting-DuBois provides custom magnets & magnetic assemblies for critical medical devices
While many vendors are currently struggling, Bunting-DuBois has reportedly not been negatively affected by supply chain disruptions as a result of Covid-19. The company makes sure to structure a diverse supply chain that does not rely on any singular source. This ensures that Bunting-DuBois is provided with raw materials for magnets that are then mixed, pressed, cured, painted, and assembled within its USA manufacturing plant.
Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, Bunting has remained operational to manufacture essential products. These products include magnetic separation and metal detection equipment for the food and plastics industries to keep essential goods such as food and medical plastics products safe for consumers. Bunting-DuBois also manufactures custom magnets and magnetic assemblies that are part of critical medical devices. Bunting’s products are currently in extremely high demand, and staff are reportedly working diligently to fulfil customers’ orders.
Ventilators are in particularly critical demand at the moment, and magnets from Bunting-DuBois are used in rotors for blower motors that are a key part of a ventilator’s construction. Bunting-DuBois magnets are also being used in hospital water filtration systems, virus testing equipment, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
“It’s a great feeling to know that we are providing products that are sustaining life and saving lives,” said Don Lindstrom, general manager at Bunting-DuBois.
“During this critical time of need, we are able to support key manufacturers of critical care equipment as they ramp-up production. Our magnets and magnetic assemblies go into medical equipment that provides life-saving treatment of those who have been infected and helps to prevent the further spread of the virus.”
