Composites slitting company Bindatex has reconfigured its production to begin die cutting discs to make filters as part of the production of ventilators for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).

This follows the UK government’s call for help to manufacturers. Currently, Bindatex is working with its customers, manufacturing the parts, but is also able to support other manufacturers by providing the filters, the company said.

‘We have immediately started work with customers in order to manufacture these life-saving ventilators,’ said Chris Lever, MD. ‘As production ramps up for the essential parts for these ventilators, we have added extra capacity to fulfil current orders whilst this emergency work continues. We will continue to support manufacturing of ventilators during these unprecedented times.’
