Why You Need Medical Precision Machining Service
At Creatingway, we use medical precision machining because of its many benefits. The medical advances seen today are only made possible with the help of precision machining. We thus get to enjoy them every single day of our lives. However, the medical concept has to graduate from the concept to actually working part through a few steps. Thus, it is best to pick the right manufacturing process from the start to avoid obstacles along the way. We recommend medical precision machining as your ideal method.
Further Insight Into the Role of Precision Machining and Benefits
Role of Medical Precision Machining
Medical precision machining makes use of CNC machines to make parts. Therefore, we pre-program the CNC machines to execute the program in making parts. We apply them in making artificial joints, surgical tools, medical device apparatuses, and implantable devices. Most CNC machines have 3 axes. The complex ones reach up to 5 axes or more. This allows the machines to handle any geometry without the aid of humans. Thus, we can easily make any complex designs with shapes.
The key difference between medical precision machining and standard CNC machining is the degree of tolerance. It can do closer tolerances compared to them later. Also depending on your goals and design features, you need to work with an advanced CNC manufacturer.
Role of Standards and Certifications in Medical Precision Machining
You require legit standards and certifications for you to make any medical device in the current market. The quality management is also strict before giving the go-ahead. An ISO 9001 standard is not enough for medical devices. It only covers metal part manufacturing. You need to get also the ISO 13485 on top. This behaves like an extra layer of quality on your medical part. It targets risk management and identification of issues. This aids in fixing them before they pop up.
Special Considerations in Medical Precision Machining
At Creatingway, we can accommodate medical devices with special wants. Tight tolerances need precision machining. It reaches up to 0.0001”. The standard CNC machines get tolerances of 0.003” to 0.005”. Other examples of special wants are levels of hygiene and accuracy. For instance, medical implants need high levels of sanitation. Also, artificial joints need a high accuracy to reduce the risk to the patient.
What’re The Steps of Making a Medical Part?
Send The Design Prints
Send a CAD file or drawing of the parts to be made. Make sure you indicate the desired tolerances and dimensions.
Get A Quote
Our team of engineers goes through the sent design prints. Once they are satisfactory, we produce samples of the design. This shows our abilities in handling the quote. It also a practice run to know which type of work will be used.
Make A Prototype
We mostly recommend building at least one prototype. It is because medical devices only have a small chance of error. The prototype allows us to identify the right tooling equipment. Also, we solve any issues encountered on the 1 to 10 components made. Thus, avoiding losses on a 10000-part order with defects.
Refine The Design
The last step is improving on the initial design. A working prototype works best as you can get a user experience point of view. Additionally, an improved design lessens scrap produced and avoid lead time delays.
What’re The Benefits of Medical Precision Machining?
Get The Perfect Fit
Precision machining allows medical devices to be custom designed. They can thus achieve a personalized and precise fit to the patient. especially for prosthetic devices such as artificial limbs and implants. This is available cost-effectively with CNC machining.
Versatility with Materials
Materials used in medical devices need to have a set of features. Such as resilience, strength, and inert. They should also offer safety and durability. Examples are medical stainless steel and titanium. Precision machining then transforms the material into any part desired. Along with the detailed sizes and shapes for a medical application.
Achieve Tight Tolerances
The medical industry is always keen on precision, accuracy, and safety. Precision machining provides these needs. Tools that require small and precise tips to function get from it CNC and EDM machines. We can also make complex parts for laser or robotics. Therefore, medical precision machining is parts are safe and reliable.
Make Miniature Medical Parts
Precision has allowed once large medical parts to be smaller. This is with the help of micromachining. Devices such as defibrillators, insulin pumps, and heart monitors are instances. Once they were cumbersome to use but precision machining changed that. Now, they can be placed inside the body. This allows the patient to have a relatively normal life with the freedom to enjoy life.
