EDM Solutions for Medical Manufacturing

Precision Wire EDM for the Medical Industry

Precision Manufacturing

Medical Machining refers to all the CNC medical device machining related to a medical component and micro medical parts. Challenges within this area of modern medicine include small-scale machining or micromachining. Efficient small-batch machining of complex parts is important because micro medical parts are developed quickly and refined through many iterations. In addition, medical device machining companies must gain FDA approval to use their machining processes. 

Due to life and death circumstances, American Wire EDM knows that a manufactured medical component or medical part requires the highest levels of quality and accuracy. American Wire EDM, Inc. has the capabilities to meet these high standards, providing precision wire EDM machining and EDM hole drilling for a broad spectrum of medical applications. From medical components for life-saving hospital equipment and surgical tools to micro medical parts, our medical component manufacturing shop can produce the parts you need with superior precision.

Our Wire EDM Machines

We utilize state-of-the-art, CNC-operated EDM medical device machining equipment and advanced CAD/CAM programming to ensure that the finished micro medical parts you receive match your exact design specifications, no matter how complex. EDM medical manufacturing makes it possible to quickly and easily produce micro medical parts that are too small and/or intricate for traditional machining.

Additionally, EDM is better suited than traditional machining to cut miniature parts. Conventional machining necessitates that holding forces overcome cutting forces. In small-parts making, simply holding or clamping parts can damage or even destroy them while cutting pressures can bend or deflect thin sections and heat can change the material temper.

EDM machining is used to create micro medical parts for many different applications within the fields of modern medicine. Whether it be medicine, dentistry or optometry EDM medical device machining creates intricate parts with complex shapes and high degrees of accuracy. Some of the medical applications for EDM machined parts include:

  • Surgical & dental hand tools
  • Links
  • Couplings
  • Flexures
  • Ratchets
  • Clips & staples
  • Insertion & spreading devices
