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.
