Speed Plastics is delighted to be manufacturing cells for a paediatric mattress for our Germany-based customer, Gerromed.
It is the first time Speed Plastics have been asked to manufacture cells for the RENCOSY Antidecubitus Systems, which offers gentle pressure relief prevention for premature and new born babies. The specialist mattress, which comes in three sizes, works on a two-cell alternating pressure system in a 6-minute cycle.
To complete the job as efficiently as possible, high frequency welding specialist Speed Plastics has invested in a new press cutter machine specifically for the job. The new tooling will reduce wastage and keep manufacturing costs down for the customer.
Operations Director Jane Collyer, explains “The new machinery will not only increase productivity but will also help to reduce errors and ensure we are only offering 100% customer service for our clients. We are always looking at ways to make our manufacturing processes more efficient for customers and this is a great example of that.”
