Covid-19: FCS machines play a role in global medical sector

Covid-19: FCS machines play a role in global medical sector

With the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, the plastics machinery industry has been affected, especially in countries like China where manufacturing operations have slowed down. 

However, Taiwanese plastics machinery maker Fu Chun Shin (FCS) says given that the demand for medical materials has exploded all around the world and especially pushed the manufacturers in China for rapid resumption of production, it has seen its machinery come into use in various medical fields.

For instance, manufacturers (in automotive parts, etc) have transformed to medical suppliers and chosen FCS injection moulding machines to produce medical parts to offer frontline protection.

In Guangzhou, China, processor Day Sun mainly produces sunglasses, and safety glasses, but due to the epidemic, it has improved the design and production standard, and has been qualified to produce medical goggles with a capacity of 200,000 sets/day.

Eyeslens optics in Fujian actively has also joined in the goggles production, utilising energy-saving injection moulding machine (HN series) from FCS to produce PVC frames of goggles. The machines have completed testing and are ready to start mass production.

Meanwhile, in Egypt, FCS says its high-speed closed-loop hybrid injection moulding machines (AF series) was chosen to produce 32-cavity PET blood collection tubes.

Furthermore, PET bottles for disinfecting alcohol have been in short supply with the outbreak. In Taiwan, a FCS customer has been using all-electric injection moulding machines (CT-e series) to produce parts for the spray and pump mechanisms. It has recently commissioned the more advanced servo hydraulic injection moulding machines (FA Series) to enhance its production capacity.

FCS adds, “The main reason of FCS’s popularity is the excellent performance and quality of the injection moulding machines, and especially the ability to quickly support customers to put into production within shortest time.” 

It also said, “We’ll keep fighting together against the epidemic, and expect the success soon.”

Taiwan's number of COVID-19 infections is currently below 50, despite the island's proximity to the outbreak's epicentre on mainland China. Experts say early intervention has helped stop a public health crisis in the country.
