Medical technology: Range of products and services in production

From artificial joints for hips, shoulders and knees to dentures and bone plates/screws, the increasing life expectancy worldwide is leading to a growing demand for implants and orthopaedic aids. In order to manufacture these products at the required level of quality and in compliance with strict standards, maximum precision, selected materials and specialist expertise are required in production.

However, there is increasing cost pressure throughout the product lifecycle and demand for efficient solutions for the entire production process.

If you want to be successful in the long-term, you have to reduce production costs. But how can this be done without compromising the quality of the products? Discover how Brütsch/Rüegger Tools can help you find a solution for this.

Material expertise

Materials and their surfaces must comply with various requirements in the field of medical technology. For example, implants that are to be completely integrated require different surfaces to screws and plates that are to be removed later.

To economically manufacture the required properties and quality characteristics, high attention must be paid to the processing throughout the entire value creation process, especially in machining.

Implants that are to be completely integrated have very high surface quality requirements.
Productivity gains – right from the start. With us. And customized.

Challenges in production

Even though titanium alloys are well suited for medical products, there is a wide range of challenges when it comes to machining. 

Machining requires special tools that match the properties of the material. Choosing the right cutting tools is critical for enabling efficient machining, maximising the service life of tools and achieving high-quality results.

Process reliability, precision and accuracy are extremely important in the manufacture of medical technology products. The cutting tools used here should offer high quality with high tolerance accuracy in order to achieve the required dimensional accuracy and surface quality.

Titanium machining in medical technology requires precise, special tools to ensure high quality and efficiency.
