Customer comments

Many well‐known customers put their trust in high‐performance connection solutions from ODU: Whether for clinics, medical and dental practices or home care, we develop customized solutions.

”In magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), it is imperative for the connectors we use to guarantee a high number of mating cycles while being absolutely non-magnetic. Besides standard coils for clinical use, RAPID Biomedical regularly develops client-specific solutions for research whose requirements far exceed the usual. It is especially in cases such as these, when special solutions are needed, that ODU supports us with the necessary technical flexibility and problem-solving expertise.”

”Thanks to a high level of experience and understanding in the conceptual design of connectors, it was possible to develop an optimal and customized solution with ODU.”

”In our requirement for a lightweight connector including a cable, we benefit from ODUs high vertical integration and competence in cable assembly.”
