Production of medical equipment addressed to people with disabilities requires the use of precisely shaped components. In order to fabricate these components, turning services are often required.
Turning services – the characteristics of the process
Turning is a machining process in which a lathe rotates the metal while a cutting tool moves in a linear motion in order to remove metal along the diameter. As a result a cylindrical shape is created. The cutting tool can be angled differently, which allows creation of various forms. It can also have various designs, depending on the application. Turning services are usually provided with the use of CNC turning machines. They are versatile and flexible, which allows them to take on challenges while providing accurate, reliable, and repeatable processes. CNC turning machines ensure the manufactured parts have very exact measurements and are characterized by an extraordinary precision.
What is the importance of turning services for the medical equipment manufacturing process?
Turning has a great importance for the medical equipment manufacturing process. It allows proper adjustments of the components used in medical devices which results in high quality end products. The manufacturers of this type of equipment trust precision turning techniques, knowing they will provide them with highly robust, yet flexible parts with smooth finishes, which are fit for purpose and strictly follow all specifications. The precision and accuracy of turning services lead to a significant reduction of security risk connected to the use of medical equipment.
Advantages of turning for the medical equipment manufacturing process
Turning allows creation of functional and very precisely executed elements for the medical equipment. The main advantages of this method are quick results, the ability to manufacture small quantities of components, and the versatility of materials.
Turning decreases production time, therefore it can be used to provide high quality parts in a short amount of time. In the medical field, where due to unpredictable situations and emergencies medical components may be needed at a moment’s notice, it is an important quality.
The ability to manufacture small quantities of components
Turning is a machining process in which no minimum order is necessary. It allows manufacturing small quantities of components, which is highly appreciated in the medical field, where there is a need for various one-off custom parts.
The versatility of materials
CNC turning machines are capable of working with the rigid materials most commonly used in the production of medical equipment – stainless steel, mild steel, titanium, aluminum, as well as engineering-grade plastics.
How precisely executed elements of the medical equipment affect the life of people with disabilities?
Precision turning parts are mostly used in the manufacturing of medical and rehabilitation equipment, as well as various wheelchair parts and accessories. They greatly affect the life of people with disabilities, by increasing mobility, independence, safety and social inclusion. It leads to cutting emergency room attendance and other unscheduled hospital admissions. Precisely executed elements of the medical equipment have the power to help the disabled people regain control over their lives, all while offering maximum comfort during the usage of medical equipment.
