Leoni ‘Best Supplier’ to Siemens Healthineers DI XP in 2016

Outstanding cable harness quality and delivery reliability for the Cios family of mobile C-arms and other devices

Friesoythe – For the third time now, Siemens Healthineers’ X-Ray Products Business Line commended Leoni Business Unit Healthcare (BU HC) as a ‘Best Supplier’ in 2016. Among other products, Leoni currently supplies cables and cable systems for the new Cios family of mobile C-arms comprising Cios Select, Cios Fusion, Cios Connect and Cios Alpha. The systems supplier started five years ago to design corresponding cable components during the devices’ development phase. From its plant in Stará Turá, Slovakia, Leoni now supplies all the complex cable harnesses for the Cios family to Siemens Healthineers. Leoni representatives were given the award for outstanding quality and logistics in December 2016.

Making technologies available for a mid-price segment is an issue with respect to the global demographic trend and of key significance among medical technology OEMs. With its Cios family, Siemens Healthineers offers its customers high-performance and reliable, mobile C-arms at outstanding value for money. Dependable and robust design, easy handling, low maintenance and worldwide customer service – with its mobile C-arms, Siemens Healthineers facilitates the use of imaging systems in many types of equipment for everyday surgery.

Siemens Healthineers again trusted in Leoni for the wiring of this range of devices. As it was also previously the case in other projects, the systems supplier was involved with the Cios product family from the outset and, together with the customer, defined the specifications of the cable components as well as the ideal cable routing during the devices’ development phase. The Leoni products for the Cios family include existing and newly designed cables and cable systems for the trolley, chassis/system and C-arm wiring. In all these cases of Leoni development work, the focus was on disruption-free and electromagnetically compatible signal transfer for excellent image quality and highly dynamic demands on the raw cable with low abrasion. Due to the worldwide distribution of these Cios C-arms, furthermore, some components had to conform to certain UL styles.

Leoni is pleased to have received this renewed commendation as a ‘Best Supplier’ in terms of quality and logistics in 2016 because it awards the optimum functioning of its existing processes and the outstanding performance of its staff involved in Germany and Slovakia.
