Machining processes used to produce medical components must offer high levels of accuracy, as even the most minor error can lead to life-threatening complications. Because of this, CNC machining has been one of the most popular and effective ways to manufacture precision medical devices and instruments. At KDML, we offer CNC machining solutions for the medical industry.

Uses of CNC Machining within the Medical Industry

Products in the medical industry must be able to meet tight tolerances for optimal function. Due to its high speed and accuracy, CNC machining is used throughout the medical industry to produce:

  • Parts for medical machines, such as pacemakers
  • Surgical implants
  • High-grade surgical instruments
  • Bone screws
  • Face shields

Most medical devices are made with injection molding. CNC machining is the most trusted process for producing precise molds that facilitate repeated and consistent injection. 

Benefits of CNC Machined Medical Parts

There are many benefits of using CNC machining for manufacturing medical parts, including: 

  • Better surface finish. CNC machining offers an improved surface finish than alternative machining methods. 
  • Can achieve complex geometries. Medical devices such as cardiovascular implants, ventricular assist devices, and joint implants all have complex part geometries. 5-axis CNC machining is one of the only processes capable of producing these parts.
  • Customizable. CNC machining can be used to create custom medical parts for each patient, such as specially designed hip implants.
  • Economical for small production volumes. Prototypes and custom medical devices often only need to be produced in small volumes. CNC offers an economical solution for low production quantities. 
  • Compatible with a wide range of materials. CNC machining gives you the freedom to produce parts from a wide range of medical-grade materials, depending on the intended use.
