Advantages of Swiss CNC parts in the Medical Industry
When you combine medical practices and technology, you are bound to come across areas of concern that require trustworthy solutions. The medical field can be unpredictable, which leads to machines and technology needing to be flexible, and, overall, there needs to be a cost threshold within procedural equipment. These are the reasons why the medical industry heavily leans on Swiss CNC machining to accommodate equipment and technology needs for parts. Below we are going to discuss 5 advantages of using parts developed through Swiss CNC machining and why this specifically is productive in the medical field.
Medical operations don’t have much margin for error. In fact, small miscalculations could realistically cause a patient severe medical harm or life threatening situations. This is why it is imperative that machined parts used in the medical field have a tight tolerance and are designed for precision and accuracy. Patients are depending on doctors and medical professionals to be exact in their calculations and operations.
With Swiss CNC machining comes highly customizable parts for various equipment (implants, surgical equipment, and electronic components) that are highly specialized. It is easy to create a part using Swiss CNC machining while removing extensive lead times and minimal volume requirements compared to other machining processes. Swiss CNC machining is highly customizable and cost effective.
Swiss CNC machining can be used to create custom parts and products using a wide variety of materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and engineering-grade plastics like PEEK. This is crucial to the demands of the medical field.
The medical industry will always have frequent encounters with emergency situations where something happens: a machine or piece of equipment has a small, one-off, custom part that was needed yesterday. Producing these parts with a Swiss CNC machine could take a matter of hours compared to 3-4 weeks utilizing other processes.
Certain parts in the medical field may need to be replaced frequently for a particular device. In some cases, there may be entire hospital networks or other healthcare organizations that have done a mass purchase of machines and are in need of large quantities of parts in stock. Swiss CNC machines are capable of large production cycles without a trade off for accuracy, precision, or quality.
