The Race to Make Ventilators | List of all required Components & Sources

What are the components required to build ventilators? Where do I find them? Questions which require immediate answers as far as many companies are concerned.

Covid19 has nearly brought the world to a stand-still. Schools? Shut. Transport? Curtailed. Vacations? Postponed. Offices? Working from home.

But operations in critical factories still continues, albeit interrupted, as they are helping combat coronavirus in one form or the other. One such industry which has risen to the occasion is the manufacturing sector, with 2 crucial products in this stage of flattening the curve - Masks (preventive) and Ventilators (diagnostic).

That most countries are having an acute shortage of ventilators is well know by now. And consequently many manufacturers have pivoted their business to ensure that their factories are producing effective mechanical or assisted ventilators at short notice.

One major issue that has propped up is the shortage of electronic components and parts for making ventilators. But the problem is prevalent enough. Let's address the solution!

Medtronics has even released their design file for free during this crisis period to encourage more manufacturers to produce ventilators.

Tesla's rolled out a prototype for ventilator (watch the video here) using components from automotives, which is already being given the nod by many respiratory therapists and physicians.

Furthermore, Supreme Components has come up with a comprehensive deck to support manufacturers who require different electronic components for the assembly of a ventilator.

Are You Manufacturing Urgently-needed Ventilators and Other Respiratory Equipment for Hospitals?

While the Singapore government is ensuring several measures to ensure Covid-19 is contained, Supreme Components continues to be fully operational providing “essential services”. We have a shared responsibility in catering to the requirements of medical device manufacturers.
