AMADA WELD TECH has announced increased strategical partnerships with manufacturers of battery modules, used in vital life support systems, as part of the effort to meet the increased demand for ventilators and their component parts during the current global health crisis. AMADA WELD TECH is a key supplier to both the medical and battery industries and has been additionally listed with the UK government as a supporting manufacturer for the production of ventilators and medical systems. As a result, the company has increased production in recent weeks, all whilst maintaining the safety and health of employees and customers.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold and governments work to contain the spread of the virus, hospital electrical power failure represents a more significant challenge than ever before. While backup generators offer the first line of defence, in the case of total or extended power failure, battery technology is critically important to life-sustaining care. Life-support equipment, such as the ventilators in such high demand during this crisis, must have a reliable battery back-up solution to ensure continued patient care in the event of a total power failure. Battery technology is also necessary to ensuring continued operation of vital equipment between a power failure and the switchover to backup generators. In addition, battery power ensures that essential support and monitoring can be maintained safely as patients are moved between wards and departments.

AMADA WELD TECH has provided technology such as its High Duty DC Resistance Welding Power Supply DC2013‑T and parallel gap weld heads to battery pack manufacturers who are rushing to increase production at this critical time. AMADA WELD TECH has also increased its own production in line with industry requirements in order to continue providing the most advanced welding solutions for the production of battery modules.

In the meantime, AMADA WELD TECH has taken measures to ensure that as many members of staff whom are able to work from home do so. Most of the company’s regional sales and service offices are now closed, with staff members available remotely to assist and support its customers with minimal disruption. In the production facilities that are manufacturing the equipment and systems crucial for continued production of ventilators and other critical technology, the company has introduced many measures to protect both its valued workforce and customers who receive their products.
