Bunting Magnetics, a manufacturer of magnetic separation, metal detection and material handling equipment, is assisting in the manufacturing of ventilators during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

According to the company, Bunting magnets and magnetic assemblies are part of critical medical devices. The magnets are used in rotors for blower motors that are a key part of a ventilator’s construction.

In addition, Bunting magnets are also used in virus testing equipment, hospital water filtration systems and personal protective equipment.

The custom magnets are manufactured at Bunting’s location in DuBois, Pennsylvania.

“It’s a great feeling to know that we are providing products that are sustaining life and saving lives,” says Don Lindstrom, general manager at Bunting-DuBois. “During this critical time of need, we are able to support key manufacturers of critical care equipment as they ramp-up production. Our magnets and magnetic assemblies go into medical equipment that provides life-saving treatment of those who have been infected and helps to prevent the further spread of the virus.”

Bunting Magnetics was deemed essential in Pennsylvania amid the coronavirus outbreak and “our staff is working diligently to fulfill the orders of our customers,” the company says.

Bunting, headquartered in Newton, Kansas, was founded in 1959. Since then, the family-owned company has expanded globally by establishing multiple locations around the world, including England, China and Australia.

The company manufactures magnetic technology to be used in the operations of multiple industries, ranging from food processing to mining, according to the company.
