Maybe it was a rumor, but it sounds up to date: years Ago, the Story circulated in Asia ventilators of a well-known manufacturer had been deceptively copied well. It was first noticed, as a patient, to a hair smothered: The scammers have copied even the highly complex Software robbery, but the principle of operation is not understood. A Nightmare!

ventilators, and two things are going to recover – and in the Corona of a crisis, you should not play with the aspirations of the people.

Trump calls Tesla

But exactly the do on media effectiveness-conscious heads. So US President Donald Trump (73) has called on days ago car manufacturer to build ventilators to fatal bottlenecks, such as in Italy in the treatment of Covid-to 19 patients before. “Ford, General Motors, and Tesla have the Go. Fast!” tweeted Trump. And the German AfD knew: “The automotive industry would be able to produce ventilation equipment.”

Prompt the audience more aware of the car tweeted boss: Tesla CEO Elon Musk (48). “We are breathing will build devices if they are scarce.” Compared to the Tesla and SpaceX technology, the “don’t be difficult”. Although you could be “not immediately built.” But: “We are working on it”.

graubünden is the market leader cons

medical technology talks-experts agree: This is going to take. To for a long time. If it is at all: Well not well done is tweeted just a long time ago.

ventilators are high-tech specialised companies. And Yes not being on the side of electric cars here. How about Hamilton Medical out of Bonaduz GR, one of the world’s market leader. There are 500 employees work around the clock and week, to the enormous demand for the devices, as well as possible to. The Federal government alone has ordered to estimated 900 additional already 1000 in Swiss clinics.

“Our ventilation devices from other companies to build, is an interesting idea, but it is unlikely that this will help in the short term,” explains Hamilton-Medical-CEO Jens Hallek (48) opposite VIEWS. “The materials needed for the building and components are very specific. If another manufacturer would use the same parts from the same suppliers, our are coming under increasing pressure. So you would have to invent the supply chain. In the short term, it is easier and more efficient to expand the existing production facilities. We are working with other manufacturers in the conversation to help us.”

manufacturer agree

Hamilton-competitors such as the German manufacturer Dräger and it see similar. The core technology of today’s respiration devices differs “fundamentally” from the car industry, comments on the Dräger to “” “The complexity, such outsource a manufacturing process, is high.” In addition, this functioning only, if the supplier capacity-stocked.

The Irish manufacturer Medtronic shares, you need more than just skilled technicians, and the desire to build such devices, to restore them.

Tesla is rowing back

Prompt all back, which had ventured to far-rowing after the big Twitter-sayings. As for the distraction of their own, only a few days old, and in Tweets the in spite of stock market deep 27 times billionaire had flown in Musk from China 1255 “fan” (ventilators). Trump no more tweets in this case.

all of the car parts almost Bauer, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, to the French PSA, check – and Daimler was about with Dräger or Tesla with Medtronic in contact. But the Established comment carefully. The VW-group, for example, with sharing, we want to use 125 industrial 3D printer, if necessary, components zuzuliefern, could but produce hardly all the devices.

experts say no.

The “mirror” quoted currently the managing Director of AG medical technology in the German mechanical engineering Association. “In the case of more complex products, such as a ventilator, I think that is not realistic – at least not in the next few weeks and months,” says Niklas Kuczaty. The safety and reliability of the device due to: “If this fails, the Patient is dead.”

Add to that: First, the respirator manufacturer should tell the car manufacturers are all well-kept high-tech secrets.

do what you can

it seems Realistic that a car manufacturer supply chains as a supplier strengths. Or just do what you can well. Just like in Switzerland for example, oil manufacturer, Panolin recently, disinfectants, manufactures in Germany, car seat suppliers, Zettl now breathing masks. Or, even easier: VW donates 200’000, BMW 100’000 protection masks from their own portfolios.

protection against Coronavirus

recommendations of the Federal office for health, how you can protect yourself:
