Zago Expands Fastener Capacity for Ventilators
As manufacturers across industry sectors pitch in to accelerate production of life-saving ventilator equipment, Newark, NJ-based Zago Manufacturing says it is ready to meet heightened, global demand for its specialty high-tech sealing fasteners.
In addition to medical ventilators, Zago high-tech sealing screws, nuts, bolts and washers are critical in the production of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Systems, similar to external blood pumps and are in dwindling supply. Frontline healthcare workers and volunteers rely on them as part of their Personal Protective Equipment when treating COVID-19 patients.
Unlike ordinary fasteners, ZAGO high-tech sealing fasteners are engineered with a rubber O-ring that when tightened, permanently seals out hazards while withstanding extreme pressure, temperature and weather. ZAGO sealing fasteners are corrosion-resistant and made in the U.S.A. with FDA-approved O-rings.
"Medical devices that contain either a suction mechanism or a pumping mechanism benefit from integrating ZAGO high-tech sealing fasteners with O-ring technology as they are essential for optimal air flow, reliability and peace of mind," says Harvey Rottenstrich, Lead Engineer and President of ZAGO Manufacturing.
