Hydromar delivers urgent COVID medical equipment components throughout lockdown

Friday July 17, 2020

Its been a busy few months, we haven’t stopped – processing nearly 90 tons of steel plate for medically urgent components. Not quite as high profile as ventilator parts, but just as critical.

Delivering the equivalent of 5 years supply, this has utilised the majority of our waterjet capacity. The massive increase in demand for this long running product has also lead to a radical overhaul of the surface finishing and hole drilling and tapping processes that we undertake in house. Our relatively new sliding bed mill capability has been essential to this process.

Our usual steel supplier closed at the start of lockdown but #parkersteel stepped in and have kept the lorry loads of steel delivering to our premises. We must also give a big shout out to a number of suppliers and customers who responded to a call for help back in March. They helped with the loan of equipment that have really contributed to delivery of this product, reducing the physical load on our staff. We would have struggled without your support #rentArc #solentCompositeSolutions #vestas. This is the weekend’s output ready to ship out to our customer.
