Precision components for the medical industry, accuracy is of the utmost importance. This statement applies to manufactured parts throughout the industry. Whether it is medical equipment, biomedical implants, catheters and other medical equipment, ultrasound equipment, MRI scanners or diagnostic equipment, high-precision CNC machining will play a role.
CNC machining is the process of manufacturing computer-aided design (CAD) templates through automated programs. The CNC machine follows the coding procedure without manual input, and manufactures complex parts from raw materials through subtractive processing technology. In short, this involves automated machines and cutting tools that cut the workpiece or "blank" to make the final product. CNC machining is widely regarded as the manufacture of parts with higher accuracy, durability and precision.
CNC machining is used in the medical field because it meets strict requirements for quality and consistency. Complicated surfaces and geometric shapes are not a problem, and the final product strictly complies with the safety and precision requirements of the medical industry. Medical equipment is complex, the parts required are brand new, and there is no room for fault tolerance. The parts must be durable, of high quality, and have a smooth surface. CNC machining achieves this because the machine runs on multiple axes. More importantly, complex designs can be manufactured on a large scale.
Precision CNC machining of medical equipment has opened the door to large-scale manufacturing of extremely small and precise parts. In many cases, precise surface treatment can only be achieved through the use of CNC machining. Thanks to precision micromachining technology, the once large and bulky design has been miniaturized. Whether the manufactured medical components are used in medical devices, equipment, components or replacement joints, there are always strict specifications.
This is the reason why CNC machining is so popular, because it can meet the requirements of end users so accurately, far beyond the capabilities of human beings. In addition, parts can be produced quickly. Since CNC machining can provide a variety of finishes, it is also possible to create more customized products. For example, plastics are used on a large scale in the medical industry.
Milling machines and lathes usually produce parts for medical researchers working in the biomedical industry, and also CNC machining can manufacture small and critical parts, such as connectors.
