New Approaches From Mikron Tool to Making Medical Screws
New Approaches From Mikron Tool to Making Medical Screws
When machining medical screws made from titanium or stainless steels, manufacturers typically need a drill, a milling cutter, and an ultimate machining strategy with perfectly tuned parameters. Mikron Tool says it has developed a turnkey solution for this application that simultaneously does the machining of hex lobular bone screws (better known as Torx) 50 percent faster, also guaranteeing a high degree of precision of the profile and achieving almost burr-free results.
