  • Reason
    Trumpf medical has been notified of an incident where a motorised height-adjustable arm of a klinoport ceiling supply unit suddenly and abruptly fell to its lowest position. the cause analysis revealed that the welded connections of the drive did not comply with the specified condition and therefore led to breakage of these connections. it is currently not to be ruled out that further drives within the same serial numbers range may have the same fault. if further cases should occur, the risk of severe injury to persons cannot be ruled out.
  • Action
    Trumpf Medical will replace all potentially affected components in order to prevent a repetition of this incident. Until the correction can be made end users are advised to ensure that the unit is in the lowest position. Trumpf is recommending that a warning be placed on the device or the electrical fuse removed to ensure that the height of the arm is not adjusted. This action has been closed-out on 08/08/2016.
