SPINAL AND TRAUMA COMPONENTSTHE MEDICAL INDUSTRY HAS EXPERIENCED SUBSTANTIAL GROWTH IN RECENT YEARS, A TREND EXPECTED TO CONTINUE DUE TO A VARIETY OF FACTORS.
Trauma, bone and spinal plates come in many shapes and sizes. Designed to follow the natural contours of the bone, they are screwed into place while the patient recovers from their ordeal.
The many shapes and sizes, variety and complexity of these components dictates that different tooling strategies and solutions will be needed when machining them. Each having specific contours and features, along with different locking and screw systems depending on the patient’s injury.
Trauma implants are subject to stringent standards so any defect causing a malfunction in these difficult-to-machine materials, such as titanium, stainless steel and increasingly new material developments in CFR-PEEK, are adding to the challenges.
