UK power supply manufacturer steps up to coronavirus challenge

UK power supply manufacturer steps up to coronavirus challenge

TDK Corporation is pleased to announce that TDK-Lambda is stepping up to the coronavirus challenge. It is the world’s largest manufacturer of healthcare power supplies, used in critical medical and laboratory applications globally. Many of these products are built in TDK Lambda UK’s factory in Ilfracombe, Devon.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, TDK-Lambda UK began receiving requests from a number of existing healthcare customers in March and April to expedite and increase delivery quantities, by six to tenfold in some cases. Despite supply chain challenges and reduced factory capacity, due to social distancing and shielding requirements, significant quantities of product started shipping in April and May. As lockdown measures are increasingly relaxed in the UK, the factory output is returning to normal levels.

Among the products were the 175W rated NV series for ventilators, the 300W EFE300M for virus detection, the 550W Vega modular power supply for COVID-19 swab testing and the new QM5 700W modular power supply for mobile X-Ray equipment.

Increasing production rates rapidly at any time requires a significant effort by the purchasing, planning and manufacturing staff. To do so during a global pandemic, the teams had to pull out every stop. This extraordinary team effort, combined with the flexibility of the UK manufacturing process and product lines, meant that TDK-Lambda UK was able to step up to the challenge and deliver.

Tim Puttick, Manufacturing Director, TDK-Lambda UK, comments: “As a trusted supplier to many major healthcare and bio-diagnostic equipment manufacturers, we are proud to play our part in the efforts to combat this pandemic and will continue to leverage the global resources of TDK Lambda to meet this challenge. Well done and a big thank you to all involved.”
