Locks, connecting, and fastening elements for medical technology

Convincing: huge product range, drawing parts and expert knowledge

In clinics and medical practices, in nursing homes and senior citizens' facilities, in laboratories and pharmacies - and of course also in research and in the emergency services: In addition to the professional competence of people, the quality of care and treatment is measured above all by the technical equipment.

Like hardly any other area, medical technology is subject to the highest demands on the one hand and a designated place for innovations on the other.Gabl Christoph

The tension between classic mechanics and increasing digitization needs to be resolved. The smallest parts in the devices, instruments and aids are of great importance here. "Without the right locks, connecting and fastening elements, nothing works, which is why designers and manufacturers in the field of medical technology are well-advised to pay special attention to them during development," says Christoph Gabl, the product manager of access solution. 

Support already during the development

Gabl's recommendation: "The sooner we are brought in, the better we can answer questions such as: Which fastening element meets the necessary requirements in terms of load, tightness, technical cleanliness or the necessary certifications?

Is the fastener design easy to maintain and repair? And with regard to existing production, which fasteners can be replaced with better alternatives or even saved?”

Plus: Ample international experience in the requirements of medical technology

If you find the right answers to these and other questions in good time, you will avoid problems and unnecessary costs later. In medical technology, KVT-Fastening, as part of the Bossard Group, also benefits from the expertise and experience that the "mother" in Switzerland, but also overseas and Asia has had and still has. 

Fabian Huwiler, Vice President of Sales Bossard Northern Europe: "Internationally, a considerable number of global players in medical technology already trust in our know-how, our products and our services, so that the Austrian and Eastern European market can also be sure:

From the surgical equipment in the operating room to electromedical diagnostics and laboratory instruments – we have the right latching and locking parts for all possible devices and instruments in all segments of medical technology.”

Whether from the catalog or as a custom-made product - maximum tightness, sterility and safety, high cost-effectiveness, the simplest possible handling. Longevity, modern style "and reliable delivery capability" are the requirements for the connection and fastening technology in medical technology. 

Locks and fastening technology, the wide field of screws, spacers, threads and press-in fasteners, blind rivets and blind rivet nuts, lockbolts, clamping and positioning elements and many more so-called C and B parts, as well as functional elements and hand tools: thanks to the international network, you can find them all numerous well-known and proven brands in the comprehensive range of KVT-Fastening. 

But that's not all: "With our six expert services, we offer the technological interpretation and design of a complete customer journey in production and manufacturing," says Fabian Huwiler. The Bossard experts make their know-how and experience available in the following six engineering services: 

  • Expert Walk checks every single step, every fastening element, every product group and every tool in production together with those responseble. The analysis and suggestions increase the quality, safety and cost-effectiveness of production.

  • Expert Teardown breaks down products and machines into their individual parts and fastening elements. Because only those who look and check expertly - and keep an eye on the whole, will occasionally replace one or the other part with something more suitable or even do without something that is not necessary.

  • Expert Design ensures early on that products are designed and manufactured in the required quality, reliability and economy. The know-how in the fastening technology is the guarantee that the product is lighter, more sustainable and more economical than one might hope for.

  • Expert Assortment Analysis Reduces the total cost of ownership by identifying the right fasteners, minimizing the expensive variety of parts and thus warehousing, and optimizing production processes.

  • Expert Test Services provide 14 testing laboratories and state-of-the-art measuring and testing systems with ISO/IEC 17025 certification worldwide.

  • Expert Education provides security with practical training courses by highly qualified experts on customer-specific topics relating to fastening technology. The aim: impart basic and special knowledge and often show hidden optimization potential.
