Additions Provide Enhanced Capabilities for Long, Cannulated Instruments
Elmhurst, IL – MedTorque, Inc. announced the addition of two investments that enhance their overall manufacturing capabilities today. These include an Engis SPM8000 series bore honing machine and a Cincinnati M2 CNC centerless grinder for OD grinding.
MedTorque is a leading supplier to orthopedic and spine OEMs for standard and custom instrumentation in the orthopedic, trauma, and surgical robotic markets.
The addition of this enhanced honing capability allows MedTorque to provide a highly-precise process for internal bore features.
“The Engis is an eight spindle, multi-stroke CNC honing machine that provides us improved efficiency and accuracy while comfortably honing lengths up to 14.5 inches,” said Gustavo Gutierrez, Director of Operations for MedTorque’s Elmhurst, IL facility.
This capability adds greater control over the process and improvements throughout production that facilitate lower lead times.
MedTorque’s centerless grinding capabilities now include CNC-controlled OD grinding. This provides the ability to refine the process accuracy within microns while ensuring repeatability.
“The CNC controlled centerless grinder is an upgrade to our manually controlled centerless grinding capability. We can now easily fine-tune the machine and provide a consistent result within microns,” Gutierrez said.
The additions to MedTorque’s capabilities strengthen its position as a market leader in contract manufacturing precision instrumentation, specifically those used in robotic and navigated surgery. The vertical integration of these processes gives you a partner with the expertise and capabilities to manufacture your products with confidence.
