Vacuum Heat Treating
Norwood Medical’s facilities are equipped with vacuum furnaces to “heat treat” metallic medical components in order to achieve optimum hardness and durability. In vacuum heat treating, the vacuum process removes the oxygen from the furnace to prevent the oxidation that occurs when metals are heated to high temperatures. The vacuum furnace precisely controls heating at pre-determined temperatures ranging from 1,700–2,200°F.
By optimizing the hardness of the component, we can ensure that the medical implant or instrument retains its structural integrity throughout its life cycle — providing optimum safety and functionality for the patient.
Vacuum heat treating is just one of the techniques Norwood Medical has in place to provide our customers with comprehensive medical device manufacturing capabilities. Our Quality and Engineering groups work closely together to integrate these processes into the production life cycle to ensure that each medical device is made to the highest quality standards. If you are looking for a full-service contract manufacturer for your medical devices, Norwood Medical is that supplier.
