How Wire EDM Supports Precision in Medical Device Manufacturing

How Wire EDM Supports Precision in Medical Device Manufacturing

By carefully removing material with friction-free electrical discharge machining (EDM), the quality of medical component manufacturing is enhanced in several ways. Importantly, contactless machining promotes defect-free part development with broad compatibility for ultra-hard material types and intricate component designs. Unlike traditional machining methods that utilize abrasive force to shape components, our computer-controlled wire EDM systems minimize material stress, provide a polished finish, and can shape a range of complex component types with repeatable precision. 

The significant advantages of wire EDM processes continue to make notable contributions to the medical device manufacturing industry. If your company could benefit from a cost-efficient, precise, and capable machining process that meets and exceeds your strictest production standards, here’s how wire EDM promotes superior part quality with every production run. 

Wire EDM Promotes Predictable Component Precision

When dealing with sophisticated medical components or life-saving equipment, there’s no room for manufacturing errors. To adequately support complex manufacturing projects in the medical industry, wire EDM eliminates the margin of error with automated programming and material-preservative cutting processes.

Optimal part precision with wire EDM is achieved through:

Wire EDM is Compatible With a Range of Advanced Material Types

Any conductive metal can be machined with wire EDM. As a result, our professionals at Cer-Mac have the capacity to shape superior manufacturing materials such as high nickel alloys, titanium, and even carbide to the tightest of tolerances. This presents several advantages for component manufacturers in related fields such as implant development, medical electronics, and surgical components when durability and dependability are key component factors. 

Wire EDM is Great For Prototype Development & Part Modification

Thanks to wire EDM’s diverse material compatibility, it is exceptionally well-suited for prototype development and major part modifications. Furthermore, our adept machinists specialize in collaborative part enhancement; our professionals at Cer-Mac can help you test multiple part iterations in a range of material types until your production goals are achieved. 

Our state-of-the-art wire EDM processes are also a cost-effective solution for reshaping and improving parts with intricate recesses and geometries. Wire EDM processes are the ideal machining process for materials that are difficult to manipulate with traditional machining processes, like Inconel 718. Before compromising on a costly or weaker material type because of traditional machining limitations, get in touch with our machinists and learn how wire EDM may be able to facilitate a more optimal component design.

The same versatility of design applies to component repairs and improvements. Perhaps you already have a rough design but want to finalize your components with frictionless wire EDM to remove inconsistencies or repair defects. Our machining experts can also assist with other material-preservative component needs, such as broken tap and screw removal support.
