The country’s one of the leading tractor manufacturer, Sonalika Tractors has introduced intelligent ventilator systems for manufacturing ventilators to support the patients affected from the global contagion coronavirus. This ventilator is designed with indigenously developed oil free air compressor.

“The project was conceptualised by Sushant Sagar Mittal, director, Sonalika group and executed by Akshay Sangwan, director development. At Sonalika, being people-centric is part of our core value and we stand committed towards the well-being of communities. It feels immensely satisfying to be able to contribute to the nation’s call for Make in India at this hour of need. In response to our Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi’s call for Aatmanirbhar Bharat, our team has been able to make this Ventilator indigenously, which is ready to fight COVID 19,” said Amrit Sagar Mittal, vice chairman, Sonalika Group.

Plans to manufacture 3000 ventilators per month

The company is planning to manufacture 3,000 ventilators per month. This ventilator, as per Sonalika, is designed with indigenously developed oil free air compressor which not only makes this ventilator self-reliant for use outside an ICU, at the same time it also acts as a backup compressor in case of any failure of hospital infrastructure.

Akshay Sangwan, director development, Sonalika said, “The project team worked closely with experienced anaesthesiologists to understand the exact situation-action correlation and built in that intelligence into the system. Standard calibration tests have been done on artificial lungs and we have also performed accelerated durability tests for 1 million cycles non-stop. The entire project was driven by six sigma methodology ensuring highest quality & performance standards. We are targeting to manufacture 3000 ventilators per month and will ramp up production based on requirements. We are obliged to contribute to the well-being of our nation and society, and hope the time to use this never comes.”

The company has designed these ventilators to meet variable mode requirements of invasive ventilation available on all advanced critical care ventilators.

Raman Mittal, executive director, Sonalika Group, said, “Amongst the host of initiatives extended to cope up with the pandemic, manufacturing these intelligent ventilators is testimony of our commitment to use technology customization. Development of this machine called for knowledge in Embedded Coding, Monitoring Software, Electronic control circuits, Mechanical functioning of thermodynamics & fluid mechanics. This is an advanced machine with built-in deep intelligence, operating under very tight tolerances of air pressure and volume. Accuracy of the data and the speed of decision making by the machine on every breath defines its efficiency.”
