MEDICAL MANUFACTURING & MACHINING

MEDICAL INDUSTRY SERVICES

The medical field often requires precise, accurate equipment created from materials that can be sterilized. Our EDM and CNC techniques are often the only way of achieving the tolerances necessary for the machined materials. A vast majority of what we do in the medical industry is medical device manufacturing for the tool, device or the custom equipment medical companies, as such, all parts and products used have to be perfectly calibrated and sized.

TYPICAL FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Our services can be used in the medical industry in a number of different ways, most often in the creation of tools, parts or custom equipment.

icon

Small or One-Off Parts

We can create small run prototyping or even single pieces for unique projects. This is often necessary in medical field for unique parts that are not machined in large quantities.

icon

Exact Parts

Medical equipment must function accurately every time it is used. Our CNC and EDM precision machining guarantees that all parts are created exactly as the blueprints provided require and dictate.

Produce Prototypes Rapidly

Rapid Prototyping

Prototypes for new medical devices can be rapidly produced. The faster the prototypes can be created and tested, the sooner doctors and patients can benefit from these devices.

BENEFITS FOR MEDICAL INDUSTRY

There are a number of different ways the medical field benefits from our services.

icon

Unique Materials

Medical equipment has very exact standards, and often times exotic materials can be used. Our Wire EDM services can cut a wide variety of different materials like titanium and stavax used in the medical field with extreme precision.

icon

Precision

Medical equipment must be very precise and error-free. Techniques such as Wire EDM can be used to create geometry without leaving any burrs or other impact damage.

icon

Automated Services

A shortage of any part in the medical industry can be very damaging to patients. Our automated equipment can produce parts around the clock, quickly meeting demand.

icon

Traceability

Many medical devices require traceability of outside processing and material. We are 2001:9008 ISO certified and will happily provide certifications upon request.

Surface finish achievable with EDM

Nov 16, 2017

Surface finish is often called out on part prints. Sometimes it’s because it influences appearance, more often because it affects how surfaces slide over one another. Bearing surfaces and those used for sealing are examples of where finish is important. An EDM surface finish is different to that produced by conventional machining. Cutting processes produce…

Let EDM be your secret weapon

Oct 26, 2017

Thin walls, tight internal radii, tapers, deep blind pockets in hard materials. Sometimes it seems designers are just trying to find the limits of what manufacturing can do. It’s as if they’re hoping manufacturing will say, “Can’t be done.” The thing is, if manufacturing only has access to conventional machining processes they’re probably right. Some…

How accurate is wire EDM?

Oct 4, 2017

It’s only natural that designers and toolmakers should ask about the precision of EDM. Knowing the capabilities of the process informs design decisions and influences costs. Whether the parts being made are surgical instruments, extrusion dies, or aerospace components, it’s important to know what tolerances are achievable. Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer. While accuracies of…

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

You can think of wire EDM as the non-contact, 21st Century version of the fretsaw. A fretsaw is used to cut complex shapes from blocks of wood. The key to its versatility is the blade, which is essentially just an abrasive wire. Being thin and able to cut on all sides, the woodworker can turn it easily to follow…
