Precision machining has tremendous advantages and has changed the way in many industries, including manufacturing, automation, robotics and the aerospace industry. But one of the most important industries for precision machining is the medical industry.
Without the innovation and advancement of precision machining, many of the medical advances we enjoy today are impossible. Here, we look at how precision engineering affects current and future medical advancement.
Machining meets the most stringent tolerances
The medical industry is a place that needs to be safe, accurate and accurate. Precision machining helps create precise dimensions for surgical tools to fit the surgeon’s hand for more accurate results.
Machining is also used to create complex parts of lasers or robots for operations that were not possible a few years ago. Access to processing will help create more discoveries and innovations that will lead to medical advances. These tools require extremely small and precise parts and tips to work – only parts that can be created by CNC and EDM machining tools.
Because these tools are used for the best surgery – even for blood vessels or brain surgery – even the smallest deviations can be catastrophic. Machining creates precise, accurate and accurate tools that are completely reliable and safe.
Effective material variety and quality
Materials used in medical environments need to meet stringent standards of durability, safety, non-reactivity and disinfectability to the human body. For example, joint replacement is usually made of medical stainless steel or titanium, with unmatched strength, elasticity and function.
Precision machining enables these materials to be subtly transformed into the complex and detailed shapes and sizes required for specific medical applications. Many of these components are permanently implanted in the body, so they need to meet tight tolerances and have an incredibly smooth surface to eliminate burrs or streaks.
EDM and CNC precision machining are ideal for machining these precision and smooth parts, even for the toughest materials. These machining techniques ensure that each part is identical and perfectly matched for optimum functionality.
Miniaturization, comfort and safety
Due to precision machining, these designs have now been miniaturized with smaller and more precise components, including housings and cables. These implants can now be placed in the body, allowing those with these implants to live a relatively normal life and enjoy the mobility and freedom of life.
Customized equipment, perfect fit
Precision machining also allows some medical devices to be custom designed for more precise and individual fit. This is especially important for prosthetic devices, such as implants such as artificial knees, prostheses and defibrillators, which need to be precisely matched to meet human needs.
Precision machining is unique to meet this need, as it is simple and cost-effective CNC machining to design and create such precise custom parts. The design is entered into a computer controller and the parts can be machined quickly and accurately for small or larger runs.
Precision machining has made tremendous contributions to the development of the medical industry and will continue to be an important part of future development.
