Hygienic design in medical technology

Deburring and polishing for perfect surfaces

In medical technology, medical implants, instruments and medical equipment have particularly high requirements with regard to surface quality and reproducible machining. On the one hand, for instance, the workpieces need to achieve a specific surface quality to conform to hygienic design requirements and thus be suitable for repeated use. On the other, medical technology products must be completely free of burrs.

The EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) has particularly high requirements with regard to process reliability, traceability, documentation, quality assurance and process management. As an ISO13485 certified service provider, we have been meeting these requirements for many years now and are happy to support you in this regard.

Deburring with abrasive flow machining is particularly suitable for:

Osteosynthesis/traumatology products such as:

  • Surgical screws (bone screws)
  • Surgical plates (e.g. locking compression (LC) plates)
  • Intramedullary nail osteosynthesis products (bone nails, tibial nails)

Surgical instruments such as:

  • Screwdrivers
  • Protective guide sleeve
  • Drill guide sleeves

Production equipment for surgical instruments such as:

  • Stents
  • Tubes and bent tubes
  • Pipes
  • Welded connections
  • Housings
  • Valves
  • Distributors

Example: Deburring a bone screw
