MW Industries Components Crucial to COVID Response

CHICAGO, ILMay 1, 2020 – MW Industries, Inc. manufactures metal components that play a critical role in the fight against COVID-19.

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to challenge business operations across the country, MW Industries, Inc., the leading American manufacturer of precision metal components, remains open at all locations, to support the needs of its clients in every industry, including playing a key part in the supply chain for ventilators and other medical devices critical in combatting the virus.

MWI’s Tri-Star Industries location (Berlin, CT), manufacturer of precision threaded inserts for plastic applications, has stepped up production to meet overwhelming demand, in support of a number of ventilator applications. Tri-Star is fulfilling orders from the largest ventilator manufacturers in the world, producing both off the shelf inserts, as well as manufactured to spec parts which total more than ten million to date.

RAF Electronic Hardware (Seymour, CT), has been a key supplier in providing an array of medical equipment manufacturers worldwide, with electronic components for critical applications in ventilators, air filtration systems and x-ray machines. To meet increased demand, RAF has been able to setup, manufacture and ship parts in a matter of days to keep production lines up and running for some of the largest medical manufacturers in the world.

With the World’s largest inventory of stock springs, Century Spring Corporation (Commerce, CA) has been an ideal spring source for both ventilator R&D and production volumes. With inventories to ship same-day, Century has been supporting dozens of medical OEM and contract manufactures in their initiative to rush mass production of ventilators. Century’s stock of stainless-steel compression springs in particular, have seen high demand in support of this effort.

Those that were looking to make “the impossible…possible” turned to Servometer (Cedar Grove, NJ) to manufacture several bellows used in critical ventilator applications. Servometer’s electroforming technology developments have helped customers to create extremely accurate and reliable devices since 1957.

At Economy Spring & Stamping (Southington, CT), a team of engineers were able to utilize their cutting-edge 3D printers to answer a local call for help, early in the pandemic, addressing a shortage of PPE masks at a Connecticut hospital, delivering the first batch of 3D printed masks in under a week.
