Machining is often used to make complicated parts for lasers, and robots are used to perform previously impossible surgeries.
Fremont, CA: Precision machining offers many advantages and has revolutionized many industries, including construction, automation, robotics, and the aerospace industry. The medical industry, however, is one of the most significant industries that precision machining supports. Many of today's medical breakthroughs would not be possible without precision machining's inventions and development. Here are three benefits of precision machining in medical devices:
Variety and Quality of Materials
Materials used in medical settings must meet stringent requirements for durability, protection, non-reactivity with the human body, and sterilizability. Precision machining enables these materials to be expertly shaped into the intricate and precise shapes and sizes required for specific medical applications. Since all of these parts are permanently embedded into humans, they must reach highly tight tolerances and have incredibly smooth surfaces to avoid burrs or striations.
For machining these accurate and smooth parts from even the most challenging materials, EDM and CNC precision machining are suitable. These machining techniques guarantee that each component is identical and fits together perfectly for optimal performance.
Medical implants such as insulin pumps, heart monitors, and defibrillators change and save lives every day. Precision machining has allowed these designs to be miniaturized, with smaller and more precise components such as casing and cables. These implants can be implanted within the body, allowing users to live reasonably everyday life with the independence and freedom to enjoy it.
Meets the Tightest Tolerances
Precision machining aids in building surgical instruments with precise dimensions that match the surgeon's hands for a more accurate result. Machining is often used to make complicated parts for lasers and robots used to perform previously impossible surgeries. Access to machining would aid in the development of many more discoveries and technologies, resulting in medical advancements. To work, these tools need tiny and precise parts and tips, which can only be created using CNC and EDM machining tools.
