COVID-19 has added heightened urgency to the way the life sciences industry researches and develops tests, vaccines and treatments. Manufacturers designing and building the instruments that carry out this vital work cannot afford to slow down their efforts due to defective parts or interruptions in the supply chain. Not only do OEMs demand highly reliable parts for their equipment, they also expect suppliers to help them meet sharp production increases and expedited lead times.
When doing such important work, the last thing OEMs need is uncertainty from their component vendors. IKO offers superior-performance, maintenance-free motion devices plus the resources and customer service to get the products you need when you need them. In fact, many leading life sciences equipment manufacturers have turned to us during the pandemic for timely delivery of reliable products used in automated workstations, liquid handling products, ADPs and test instruments.
IKO Quality, Resources and Service
You can rely on us for high-quality parts that deliver accurate and repeatable positioning and rotations of lab objects and samples. Our products have proven reliability with zero defects among the hundreds of thousands of parts produced every year. Many products also come with C-Lube maintenance-free lubricating technology, which virtually eliminates maintenance requirements that can otherwise pause machines when downtime isn’t an option.
And when you have to address a specific design need or meet an aggressive production target, we’ll harness local and international resources and make a company-wide commitment to meet your goal. Our resources include extensive inventories of parts stocked in multiple U.S. locations that can fulfill large, expedited orders. When you need a prototype right away, we’ll work with local machine shops to create proof-of-concept samples.
In addition, our service and engineering staff will communicate with you daily to make sure we meet your expectations. Taken together, we deliver a coordinated, rapid response to solve your COVID 19-related design and production challenges, giving you certainty as you plan ahead for ramped-up production.
An Indispensable Partner for Combating COVID-19
