Medical Machining

Medical Machining refers to all of the CNC machining related to surgical implants, orthotic devices and medical instruments. Challenges include small-scale machining or micromachining, because implanted devices often consist of very tiny components, and machining titanium, a material often used in medical devices because of its non-reactivity with the body.  Efficient small-batch machining of complex parts is also important because new medical devices are developed quickly and refined through many iterations. Moreover, for implantable parts, shows must receive FDA approval of their machining processes.
