Siemens Healthineers AG is a German medical device company. It is the parent company for several medical technology companies and is headquartered in Erlangen, Germany with a rich history.
In order to increase testing capacity for their CT and Pet CT machines, Siemens enlisted Matter Fabs to build an industry leading radiation cabin.

Although not known by the average consumer, Siemens Healthineers is a vital part of our global health, as the work they do provides a pathway towards finding and treating unknown health issues.
Founded in 1847, Siemens Healthineers is a market leader in diagnostic imaging with their systems for computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, molecular imaging, our X-ray products, ultrasound systems, and imaging IT.
Given how important their machines are, it’s vital that Siemens Healthineers thoroughly test components. This helps to guarantee the quality, reliability, and safety of those operating and being tested by the machines.
As testing of the parts takes place, the machines emit a low amount of radiation. As a result, radiation cabins are required to run these machines safely.
Siemens’ production was growing, meaning they required an increased number of radiation cabins in their facility.
Siemens found Matter Fabs through RPP, a vendor of Matter Fabs, and chose us due to our track record of quality and our ability to complete the project in a timely manner.
Although Matter Fabs was contracted to build a new radiation cabin, it was extremely important to Siemens that we matched the cabins in the facility. Matter Fabs was able to reverse engineer the work done previously, allowing us to duplicate the final result and build more radiation shielding.
When it came to designing the best radiation shielding for the job, Matter Fabs provided a modular panel system that was custom built to our client’s specifications.
As a result of working with us and building more radiation shielding, Siemens was able to more easily scale their manufacturing capabilities by helping to eliminate the bottleneck that occurs during testing.
Our radiation cabin fits seamlessly both visually and in application.
