Take a look around any doctor’s office or hospital, and although it’s unlikely that you’ll notice them, miniature aluminum extrusions will be all around you. Minalex manufactures these custom aluminum extruded parts for medical devices (and other components) that may be small in size, but play a vital role in the operation and functionality of precision medical equipment. Aluminum is the ideal material for use in the medical community, as it is strong yet lightweight, guards against corrosion, resists bacteria and is very easy to clean and disinfect.

Minalex constantly receives requests from medical device companies looking to create specialized components that are used in everything from gurneys and stethoscopes to respirators and ventilators, and even to lab testing equipment – all items that are critically needed now in the treatment and care of coronavirus patients. As a result, the Company has developed long-established partnerships with many medical device companies who turn to Minalex time and again for the highest quality components that require extremely tight tolerances.

Minalex stands with the medical device industry and is proud to play its small, but valued role in supporting those who are on the front lines of responsiveness and patient care – including doctors, nurses, firefighters, first responders, law enforcement and other essential healthcare personnel – not just during the current COVID-19 pandemic, but long before and far ahead in the future.
