Aluminum Extrusions for Healthcare. Small Size. Big Impact.

Healthy Solutions for Patients, Healthcare Providers and Medical Practitioners Alike.

The hidden benefits of miniature aluminum extrusions can be found in about every hospital, medical facility, and doctor’s office in support of better treatments and better outcomes. And the list where they can be found keeps growing every day. If you are wondering where and why, here are important reasons why they play a small but very vital role.

One of the most practical reasons is to conserve space. Operating rooms and patient rooms can be very congested (no pun intended) spaces where a variety of specialized equipment are regularly employed to treat patients and look after their medical condition.

Walk into any of these places and there are likely to be a wide variety of monitors in use. Having them mounted on a wall eliminates the need for stands or carts that can get in the way. The aluminum mounting arms have other uses as well. While the arms provide support and stability for the monitors, they also house and protect the complex array of cables that form the backbone of the precision electronic instruments that medical professionals rely on every day.

During the early days of the pandemic, Minalex Corporation played a pivotal role by supplying a component essential for the automation of the workflow that shortened the time needed to process RT-PCR testing for SARS-CoV-2.

And when it comes to fostering a more sterile environment, aluminum is the ideal material for use in the medical community, as it is strong yet lightweight, guards against corrosion, resists bacteria and is quite easy to clean and disinfect.

Medical device manufacturers constantly look to Minalex for creating specialized components that can be found in everything from gurneys and stethoscopes to respirators and ventilators, and even to lab testing equipment – all items that demand the highest in reliability and performance in the treatment of patients.

Here at Minalex, we are proud to be a premier aluminum extrusion company that excels at creating high-quality, precise, and reliable parts for the healthcare industry and specializing in fully customized solutions that help to preserve life.
