Rapa Healthcare Press Release
At Compamed 2022: RAPA Healthcare presents high-tech for medical devices
From product development consulting to series production
Once again RAPA Healthcare presents itself at the Compamed in Düsseldorf – after the successful premiere last year. The trade fair is an ideal information and communication platform to present the range and competencies of the valve specialist and high-tech product manufacturer. Trade visitors will gain insights into the development and production of fluidic components such as solenoid valves and their many possibilities for medical technology. RAPA Healthcare will be at booth P11 in Hall 8A. Compamed runs from November 14 to 17, 2022.
One of the core competencies of the Healthcare division is the realization of very special customer requirements. Instead of preconfigured “catalog products”, RAPA inspires with individual and precise engineering. The focus is always on the respective customer and market requirements. Thus, almost 100 percent of the medical technology components manufactured at RAPA are tailor-made. To ensure that deliveries can nevertheless be made efficiently and at optimized costs, the company relies on sophisticated modular systems and common platforms.
References from all over the world
At RAPA, proven valve technology forms the basis for many product developments. This approach is well received, as confirmed by successful national and international customer references from various industries. This year, the company also received the TOP 100 – the innovative medium-sized company award. “This award spurs us on to continue developing high-quality, high-performance and innovative product solutions for our customers in the healthcare segment,” says Dr. Roman Pausch, CEO of the RAPA Group of Companies.
Valves for medical technology – solution-oriented for all fluid technology tasks
RAPA Healthcare manufactures components for all areas of medical technology: for example, hydraulic valves for lifting force support and precise control in adjustment systems for patient beds or operating tables. Furthermore, valves for dialysis machines and for applications in anesthesia, emergency medicine, intensive care and biomedicine. A particular challenge is posed by so-called media-contacting components that come into direct contact with the human body, for example when handling fluids in dialysis machines. For applications in analytical technology, RAPA offers special valves that are highly resistant to aggressive media and gases.
Günter Knubbe, RAPA senior key account manager, on market requirements: “Valves in medical technology require high reliability and functionality, a long service life, energy efficiency, and weight savings while being highly economical.” RAPA is therefore always a development partner for manufacturers, he says. Knubbe says, “We know the challenges in the industry and have extensive experience in valve technology and fluidics to offer solutions that are cost-effective, safe and ready to install – without compromising on quality.”
RAPA is a development partner for medical technology providers
All valves from RAPA can be customized in terms of material such as special materials, actuator, electrical connections or technical characteristics. For example, flow rate, characteristic curve or sound and noise level, switching cycles or tightness are modified according to the tasks. The experts at RAPA Healthcare offer an all-round service – from the initial consultation to engineering, component development, prototyping, process development, assembly and series production.
The expertise is based on the wealth of experience of the highly qualified employees. Many have been with the company for a long time. For example, RAPA alone employs over 150 specialists and engineers in valve development and in the technology areas of materials, hydrodynamics, pneumatics, hydraulics, thermodynamics, acoustics, flow simulation and analysis, temperature behavior and vibration resistance.
