Medical devices, tools and surgical implants have to function flawlessly within a life or death context. Every component of these products has to be manufactured to a microscopic level of precision and consistency. There is no metal finishing process that can achieve better results than electropolishing.
Small microburrs, fissures, cracks, and other defects left behind by machining on the surface of metal parts create an environment susceptible to bacterial and viral growth. Without a defect-free, ultraclean finish, metal instruments, medical implants, and other devices pose a risk to patient health and safety. Read our whitepaper to learn why electropolishing creates the most passive, pathogen-resistant surfaces.Download whitepaper
Our Finish First methodology enables world class design and manufacturing engineers to approach metal finishing challenges from the beginning, both as a way to ensure better results prior to penetrant testing, and as an advantage in the design and prototyping stage.Explore finish first
Download our technical guide and discover how electropolishing can enhance corrosion resistence and improve microfinish benefiting medical device industry applications, including implants, cutting tools, drills, blades, surgical tools, and disposable devices.Download whitepaper
Electropolishing, with its ability to remove a microscopically precise layer of surface material with consistent results, is the finishing process of choice for such parts, for many reasons. Learn why electropolishing is more effective than other methods for removing burrs.Download Whitepaper
Learn why enhanced corrosion resistance is one of the most common reasons engineers across a variety of industries rely on electropolishing to finish their critical metal parts, especially for parts made of stainless steel. Three included case studies show the difference electropolishing makes.Download whitepaper
Electropolishing's ability to remove a microscopically precise surface layer with absolute consistency leaves critical metal parts with an ultraclean and ultrasmooth surface that inhibits the growth of pathogens and makes reusable devices easier to clean, without burrs, micro cracks and other surface imperfections that can trap liquids and debris and give harmful bacteria a place to hide.
In fact, electropolishing is so effective at optimizing the surface of medical devices and parts that we are often consulted for help in the prototyping phase to ensure that features are designed in ways that make electropolishing even more effective and avoid common design flaws.
ASPSS is a unique venue in the US and offers a matchmaking event dedicated to surface treatment and finishing capabilities for aerospace manufacturing. The event focuses on chemical processes, heat treatment, materials testing, surface enhancement and related services.
ASPSS is an opportunity for manufacturing engineers, fabrication, supply chain teams and vetted suppliers to come together through approved and pre-arranged meetings.
