Medical Component Manufacturing Challenges We Solve

Having earned a reputation as a dynamic industry force, we solve the most difficult cylindrical medical component manufacturing challenges, striving to push further than thought possible.

Our formidable perseverance collides with high-quality engineering support and the latest state-of-the-art technologies to help us navigate the most demanding medtech manufacturing challenges, including:

Tolerancing challenges

We successfully produce critical implantable and delivery device components to sub-micron tolerances on diameters with complex geometries and intricate part features, consistently achieving feats that others deem unattainable. Where there is no margin for error, rely on our tolerancing expertise to assist your design team in ensuring your assembly’s form, fit, and function on first production.

R&D process & capability uncertainties

We commit all necessary resources to handle R&D and developmental medical component manufacturing projects responsively. With help from our seasoned staff and the latest state-of-the-art technologies, we’re here to assist your design team with manufacturability to alleviate process and capability uncertainties and expedite your time to market. In addition to rapid prototyping and validation, we also provide a stable and dependable ongoing service for long-run production work.

Tight product launch schedule

With the flexibility to dedicate equipment and multiple production shifts to your time-sensitive medical component manufacturing job, we’ll do everything necessary to meet the most demanding deadlines without compromising quality. It’s just another way we demonstrate our commitment to advancing missions like yours that improve lives.

Challenging materials

Whether you’re struggling with materials that are challenging to work with or procure, we offer the ingenuity and stock to jumpstart or reinvigorate your production lines. We can machine, EDM, shape, transform, and even combine various materials, thanks to our in-depth experience with over 60 different alloys, including stainless steel, nitinol, and hypodermic tubing.

Volume consistency

Fueled by integrity and an immense dedication to quality control, we routinely manufacture ultra-precision medical components within .00010’’ accuracy. True B (6th) Axis Wire EDM for “turn and burn” applications and our robotic automation capabilities make us the perfect fit for high-volume EDM applications. Whether you need 25 or 25,000 parts, our advanced machining techniques will deliver the reliable consistency that your project demands.

Some of our most radical achievements happened when a medical component engineer thought they drew something that no one could manufacture. Reach out and share your project challenges with us, and we’ll show you how we make the impossible possible.
