Non-stop production of ventilator components

Norgren adapts its Switzerland-based manufacturing capability to meet the urgent requirement for more ventilator units from the life sciences marketplace.

Production of the FAS Flatprop valve, an essential component which delivers high precision proportional flow control to enable the precise control of very low or high flow rates, has been significantly escalated to meet the rapidly increasing demand to support healthcare systems around the world.

The current semi-automatic production line at the FAS manufacturing plant transitioned to fully automatic status at the end of March. Production is manned by three shifts working around the clock and special in-house employee support systems have also been introduced for childcare provision to enable the manufacturing staff to devote the maximum time available to the production.
