Water Jet Cutting
Norwood Medical recognizes the benefits of using waterjet-cutting machines in the manufacturing of medical implants and instruments. A waterjet is a tool capable of slicing into metal or other materials using a jet of water at high velocity and pressure, or with a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.
The primary benefit of waterjet cutting is the ability to precisely shape materials without interfering with their inherent structure, which typically occurs at the heat-affected zone. For our customers, the promise of minimizing the effects of heat allows for potentially life-saving medical components to be cut without harming or changing their intrinsic properties.
Waterjet cutters are capable of producing intricate cuts in medical components, and with specialized software and upgrades to machining heads, parts with very complex geometries can be produced. Norwood Medical’s experienced engineers and machine operators are skilled at making recommendations to component designs to achieve maximum functionality and cost-efficiency for our customers.
As with all processes, our engineers have the methods in place to maximize production efficiencies and maintain the highest possible manufacturing standards.
