Sometimes the best way to make a particular device is by combining non-traditional and common manufacturing technologies. But this can be too much of a challenge for some suppliers.
For example, we combine laser cutting with CNC grinding and metal forming to make these hand pieces for a surgical device used in head and neck procedures.
Some medical devices must have precise anatomical bends. The metal or plastic must be manufactured to mimic the exact curve of a human body part so it can serve its purpose.
The intermedullary nails we manufacture might look simple, but they are actually highly precise — much to the appreciation of the patients whose broken bones will be repaired and the surgeons fastening the implants into place.
The black-handled devices above include precise bends to assist in accessing hard-to-reach anatomy.
