SCHUNK Partners with JR Automation In Fight Against COVID-19

SCHUNK is proud to partner with JR Automation Technologies LLC to increase availability of N95 medical masks.

N95 medical masks, critical in the fight against COVID-19, have become difficult to source as demand has surged. As states move toward re-opening, the country faces the challenge of protecting its essential workers and frontline healthcare professionals. As a result, it was vital that high quality components were chosen in the application to produce this important product.

SCHUNK was chosen as a major component supplier based on the company’s worldwide product availability and experienced engineering support, which will allow for quick turnaround of masks and ensure the creation of a self-sufficient local supply chain.

“We are proud to assist JR Automation and their end customer to build this critical medical equipment and increase future supplies in the fight against COVID-19. The trajectory of the virus, and the levels of supply necessary to keep essential workers and frontline medical personnel safe, is currently unknown. Therefore, all work undertaken to manufacture vital supplies is essential.” said Milton Guerry, President of SCHUNK USA.
