Medical & Robotics

Prototech Machining stands at the forefront of innovation, delivering precise solutions for the Medical and Robotics industries. Harnessing cutting-edge technology, we ensure unparalleled accuracy and quality in every project.

Revolutionizing Surgical Precision with
ProtoTech Machining

Leveraging medical models developed via rapid prototyping technologies heralds a novel method for surgical planning and simulation. These techniques, which involve CNC machining services and 3D printing technologies like Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), enable the reproduction of intricate anatomical objects into tactile 3D models. This provides surgeons with a realistic preview of complex structures pre-surgery.

Why Do Medical Robotic Device Development Companies Use ProtoTech Machining?

Interactive Design Analysis

Make critical design adjustments that save development time and cost with design for manufacturability (DFM) feedback on every quote.

Low-Volume Production

Get low-volume production parts in as fast as 1 day to streamline your supply chain once before and after products are launched to market.

Bridge Tooling Before Production

Leverage affordable bridge tooling for design and market validation before capital investment in tools.

Medical Materials

Choose from high-temperature plastics, medical-grade silicone rubber, and 3D-printed micro-resolution and microfluidic parts, among hundreds of other plastic, metal, and elastomeric materials.

Technology Agnostic

Multiple manufacturing technologies across four services mean your parts are paired with the right equipment and process regardless your project needs.

Rapid Prototyping

ProtoTech Machining in production-grade materials for functional and regulatory testing, or 3D print models and organ scans to preview before medical procedures.

3D Printing Drives Innovation in the Medical Industry

Innovations in 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, are revolutionizing the healthcare sector with their capacity to enhance certain medical treatments. For example, a radiologist could utilize Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) to fabricate an accurate replica of a patient’s spine for preoperative planning, while a dentist might employ Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) to scan a damaged tooth and create a perfectly fitting crown.

CNC Machining for Medical Parts (Titanium)

Our CNC machining services experts specialize in precision medical machining, fabricating some of the world’s tiniest medical parts. We acknowledge the significance of accuracy, thus meticulously monitoring every step of the component’s processing via Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM). We rigorously adhere to the exacting standards of the medical industry. Our machinists approach your CNC machining challenges with commitment and a clear understanding of your unique requirements.

What Materials Work Best for Medical Applications?

  • High-temp Plastics

    PEEK and PEI (Ultem) offer high-temperature resistance, creep resistance, and are suited for applications that require sterilization.

  • Medical-grade Silicone Rubber.

    Dow Corning’s QP1-250 has excellent thermal, chemical, and electrical resistance. It’s also bio-compatible so can be used in applications that require skin contact.

  • Carbon RPU and FPU.

    Carbon DLS uses rigid and semi-rigid polyurethane materials to build functional parts ideal for late-stage prototyping or end-use devices.

  • Microfluidics.

    Watershed (ABS-like) and Accura 60 (PC-like) are clear materials can be used for microfluidic parts and transparent components like lenses and housings.

  • Medical Alloys.

    Between machined and 3D-printed metals along with sheet metal, there are more than 20 metal material options available for medical components, instrumentation, and other applications. Metals like titanium and Inconel have attributes like temperature resistance while various stainless steel materials brings corrosion resistance and strength.
