Medical Industry / Medical Machining
What is Medical Machining?
Medical Machining refers to the CNC machining related to surgical implants, orthotic devices and medical instruments. Challenges include small-scale machining or micromachining, as implanted devices often consist of very tiny components, and machining titanium, a material often used in medical devices because of its non-reactivity with the body. Efficient small-batch machining of complex parts is also important because new medical devices are developed quickly and refined through many iterations. Moreover, for implantable parts, shows must receive FDA approval of their machining processes.
The unique nature of Medical CNC Machining:
Those in the medical manufacturing industry and innovators alike choose Manitowoc Tool & Machining when they need to source CNC services, create prototypes, or simply cut costs while improving product quality.
Machining requirements for the Medical industry involves precision and meticulous care throughout the entire process. Whether it’s a housing for a CT or MRI machine, a Cardiopulmonary Device, or complex internal components for medical equipment, MTM focuses on delivering the best precision machining available.
MTM’s ultra-precise (under .003”) CNC machining for the medical industry ensures we can meet those extreme tolerances required. When it comes to machining for medical applications there can be no room for inaccuracies or error. Whether it’s use is for patients or research and development we guarantee your prints will be met to spec.
More than ever in the Medical industry CNC machined parts contribute significantly to the final assembly. Stainless steel, Aluminum, brass, bronze, ceramic, copper, Inconel, and many types of plastic are commonly found in Medical CNC machining. Other specialized materials not found in many other industries such as Kovar, gold and titanium are also regularly used.
Our team of skilled engineers and machinists work with our customers to create the specific medical components you need. Through over 50 years of experience in producing specialized precision components for the medical industry, we will also provide guidance on how to improve the part itself if there’s an opportunity to do so. Whether it’s the design, machining requirements, or dimensional efficiencies; our unparalleled proficiency in these areas will ensure you’re doing it the best possible way the first time.
MTM’s engineering team is constantly looking for new ways to improve and enhance the quality of our Medical CNC machining practices. ISO 9001:2015 certified with state of the art 3 and 5 axis CNC Machine centers, and world class CMMs (coordinate measuring machine), MTM’s customers can rest assured they are getting the best service available for their high precision parts available. Customers may supply their own castings or rely on us to source them from one of our many reputable foundries.
