CNC milling and turning is a critical aspect of medical device manufacturing. Tegra Medical’s large inventory of vertical machining centers and multi-axis lathes give us the flexibility and capacity to machine a wide range of products, from tiny components used in arthroscopy to large, reusable instruments for hip, knee and spine procedures.
Using 5-axis high-speed milling and multi-axis turning capabilities, we can machine complex shapes in a single set-up, which reduces production costs, time and potential errors. 5-axis CNC milling is a particularly cost-effective alternative to multiple fixturing for prototypes and short production runs. But cost-effectiveness is only part of the story. 5-axis CNC milling produces a more accurate part as five sides of the part can be machined without losing positional accuracy.
