In medical technology, the complex spiral shapes of implants, dental prostheses, and surgical instruments can only be manufactured or refined with multiple axis machining.

The curved shapes limit the machining possibilities so that in most cases, electrical discharge machining is the only economical solution.

With Carl Hrischmann Rotary Indexing Tables and Reference Systems, you can operate in the highest accuracy range guaranteeing a reliable and highly precise manufacturing process for your small surgical products.

Surgical Needles – Wire EDM in Medical Engineering

The very small diameters and lateral forces utilized in manufacturing surgical needles are not obtainable in conventional lathes or grinding machines. Electrical discharge manufacturing on a wire EDM with rotating indexing spindles is the best possible solution.
