Expanding European medical manufacturing

Expanding its European medical equipment manufacturing and support, Ikegami is enhancing its facilities at its EU headquarters in Neuss, Germany, and modernising other areas within the 25-year-old building.

The investment will help meet increased demand for its wide range of imaging and display solutions, according to Zeljko Romanic, Industrial & Medical Video Division Manager at Ikegami Electronics (Europe) GmbH. ‘Among additional resources to be provided are expanded circuit-board design capabilities plus assembly, configuration and testing areas,’ he said. ‘All are being equipped to meet the newest production standards, especially those directly relevant to the medical market. We source many of our electronic boards from suppliers in Germany, which enables us to meet the specific needs of our European customers with maximum efficiency and reliability.

We will also be expanding our production team to make the best possible use of these enhanced facilities which will be a true Centre of Excellence

‘In addition to electronic component integration and inspection, the facility will be equipped with enhanced optical testing capabilities to ensure consistent performance in optics and imager combinations. We will also be expanding our production team to make the best possible use of these enhanced facilities which will be a true Centre of Excellence.’ 

Products assembled at Neuss by Ikegami Europe include the firm’s range of medical camera heads and control units, all designed to provide the facilities needed to televise surgical procedures both for routine operations and for student training purposes.

‘The new resource will extend Ikegami's European camera assembly capacity and also encompasses a new medical demonstration room where visiting customers and their guests will be able to experience the company's products in a working environment closely matching a surgical operating room,’ Ikegami reports.
