A subsystem is a self-contained module within a larger system. Often in the life sciences marketspace, manufacturers look for partners that specialize in a specific industry to design and supply subsystems for their larger system. This allows their engineers to focus on other aspects of their device while outsourcing subcomponents inside a larger system. When looking for a partner to provide subsystems and components one should look for expertise in the field with decades of industry experience. A single provider of the components is ideal too as this makes less work when managing inventory and ordering, as well as minimizing time coordinating with a partner's customer service team.
Parker Hannifin's Precision Fluidics Division is unique in the customized subsystem solutions it can provide. Precision Fluidics is the global leader in providing miniature fluidic components and is predominantly focused on the life science market. The Precision Fluidics portfolio includes miniature pneumatic proportional and liquid control valves, diaphragm pumps, thermal mass flow controllers/meters, electronic pressure controllers, high-precision regulators, and rotameters. Parker can integrate the full range of its technologies into engineered subsystems. This can reduce an OEM’s technical risk, as well as lower its development cost and time. Precision Fluidics engineers have the industry expertise along with the manufacturing and project leadership knowledge to ensure our solutions work seamlessly in your product. This will allow you to focus on your core science and technology and leave the fluidic control systems to Parker.
