Aventics produces pneumatic components for all tasks in medical engineering

With high production standards, worldwide support, and customer-specific components, Aventics has positioned itself as the ideal partner for the life sciences industry. The pneumatics specialist offers integrated solutions for current challenges, such as increasing mobility of medical equipment and networked applications.

Aventics products can be found in all areas of medical engineering: They prepare and distribute air and oxygen as well as medical gases in hospitals, and supply patients with oxygen through mobile oxygen concentrators. Pneumatic components make shock wave therapy and anesthesia possible. They are used in mobile emergency equipment and monitoring devices, such as stationary blood pressure monitors. And Aventics valves, cylinders, and sensors are also key components in industrial automation for manufacturers of medical technologies.

Aventics customers benefit from the company’s many years of experience in safety-relevant industries. “Functional safety and reliability are not only considered theoretical product advantages – we know that they are essential properties in many life sciences applications,” emphasizes Paul Gant, Director Global Life Sciences at Aventics. This applies both to automatic production systems and medical equipment. Thanks to worldwide support, developers can always reach out to a competent contact, providing support in selecting the right components or designing customer-specific components and incorporating the expertise of a global manufacturer. One example of customer-specific components is the fluid block, it combines pneumatics, sensor technology and electronic interfaces.

Small, lightweight, and smart

Aventics is promoting two major trends in particular: Compact, lightweight pneumatic components mobilize many medical devices that were once only available for stationary applications. The company is also driving networking forward: Aventics components enable functional monitoring and predictive maintenance, as well as the control of complex functionalities.

Aventics places a special focus on developer support. A wide range of web-based tools make choosing components and designing equipments and systems easy. The online portal contains configurators, CAD tools, calculation programs, and a shop that allow users to order fully configured components. An internal team of experts is also available for complex engineering tasks for customer-specific solutions, including building prototypes.
