CNC Swiss Machining
Norwood Medical relies on a large inventory of Swiss-style computer numerical control (CNC) machines to produce medical implants, devices and instruments for a wide range of medical procedures. Swiss machines are ideal for medical device manufacturing because they provide high-speed production with extreme accuracy, delivering repeatable results for precise manufacturing requirements.
Our professional CNC Swiss machine operators are trained to use the latest equipment and are responsible for producing the most intricate medical components in the industry. Before the manufacturing instructions are programmed into the machines for production, our experienced medical device engineers have evaluated the component’s design to ensure maximum efficiencies and product integrity. If necessary, Norwood Medical collaborates with our customers and will make recommendations to achieve the most cost-effective and functionally accurate component possible.
Suitable for a wide range of production complexities
For simple small parts, the Swiss CNC machines are capable of producing a component in one cycle at a very high rate of speed, making them ideal for cost-effective large production runs. More sophisticated components benefit from the machines’ live tooling capabilities, which allow for multiple, more complex machining operations to take place within a single production run.
As with all processes, our engineers have procedures in place to maximize production efficiencies and maintain the highest possible manufacturing standards.
