CNC machining is one of the top industry methods to produce high-quality product parts when it comes to precision, integrity, and high-speed manufacturing. In addition to companies in the ICT, IT, and aerospace sectors, the medical industry is also among the major consumers of CNC cutting services. In this article, we will look at how precision CNC machining for medical components is done and the benefits it can bring to your business.
What is precision medical machining?
The medical industry is known for its low susceptibility to error. In this industry, human lives are at stake, and small errors can cause major health problems or even death. Thus, the machining process for medical parts production must be designed for precision measurements and tight tolerances. When it comes to meeting these requirements, CNC machining is the best option.
In CNC or Computerized Numerical Control, the production steps are guided and monitored by highly accurate design plans, and the CNC machine constantly compares the data and adjusts the production process if necessary. A machining center is a multi-function device that includes a combined lathe and milling machine. The combination of several CNC machines results in a complete Medical Device Machine Shop.
During the process, the team of highly experienced professionals uses laser/electron beam welding, laser cutting, plastic injection molding, metal injection molding, casting, or coating & plating to create medical device parts as small as 0.008 in diameter.
What benefits does CNC machining medical parts offer to the medical industry?
- Suitable for a wide range of materials: medical materials must meet very strict requirements for durability, safety, and cleanliness. For example, many joint replacements are made of high-quality stainless steel or titanium, which are incredibly strong, flexible, and functional.
- There is no quantity limit: any number of components can be produced in a very short time once the required design file has been created. This can be a huge advantage when it comes to making custom one-off parts, such as medical devices, appliances, and prosthetics.
- When there is no room for error: On a good CNC machine, it’s easy to meet the tight tolerances required for sophisticated medical devices. CNC machining allows for excellent surface finish and integrity throughout the product line, which is critical to the high-quality standards in the medical industry.
- Fast turnaround: Medical Device Machine Shop’s services allow them to quickly produce the right prototypes and then move on to mass production
