In the post-plague era, the population is becoming more health conscious. This has propelled the healthcare industry to buck the trend and the demand for medical devices is growing rapidly across the globe. According to Mr. Data, the global market volume of medical devices reached USD 451.9 billion in 2019.
The accelerated development of the global market will certainly link the upstream and downstream industry chains. This brings a large demand for medical device processing. It also brings a new round of development for the precision parts manufacturing market.
I. Precision machining – reducing costs and increasing efficiency, improving precision
Medical devices are characterized by complex structures and high requirements for precision and reliability.Medical device components require higher levels of workpiece material, machining accuracy and surface finish. This also means that precision machining capabilities need to be raised to a new level.
In the field of medical precision machining, turning and milling technologies and micromachining technologies are commonly used. In the face of higher processing requirements in the future, how do these two technologies occupy the medical precision machining field?
(A) Turning and milling technology
In the application of medical equipment, military, aerospace and other fields, turning and milling composite machining technology has great advantages. Especially for some complex shapes of shaped parts processing advantages are more obvious.
Most of these medical parts have the characteristics of small batch, multi-species, irregular shape, hard material, high surface finish, etc. These parts require strict milling, turning and drilling processing, such as orthopedic implants (mostly titanium alloy or stainless steel, with joint plates, artificial joints, bone nails, etc.), dental implants, pacemaker parts, etc.
Turn-mill machining center can realize the machining of multiple surfaces or complex shapes of parts in one clamping, which greatly simplifies the complexity of workpiece clamping and tooling system and reduces fixture and non-productive time. In addition, the mill-turn machining center can use high-speed milling, using a large amount of tool-eating high speed machining, to meet the needs of users in improving productivity, ensuring machining accuracy, reducing parts transfer and inventory, reducing floor space, etc.
(B) Microfabrication technology
Often, in medical devices, there are many parts that are very small and precise, such as hemodialysis components, filters and small bone nails. Micromachining technology will have more advantages in this area. This is so because, compared to electrical discharge machining and laser machining, micro-drilling does not burden the workpiece and allows for high precision and clean internal surface openings.
(II) the main development direction of CNC processing of medical equipment.
With the development of the medical device industry. The future of medical devices will have more and more varieties, more complex structures and higher precision requirements. Then in order to meet the needs of medical devices of many varieties and high precision. There will be high-speed, high-precision, intelligent, composite, environmentally friendly precision machining, which will gradually become the main development direction of medical device CNC machining.
