Perfect in shape in medical engineering with SINUMERIK

Keeping pace thanks to the innovative CNC technology

Description

Whether artificial joints, surgical instruments or dental applications – highly automated manufacturing processes find their way into the manufacture of medical products. The reasons are obvious: The CNC allows to manufacture implantats and instruments more precisely and faster. The comprehensive know-how acquired by Siemens ensures maximum efficiency in the CAD/CAM CNC process chain and in the manufacture of high-quality products. Thus, the manufacturers of medical and dental products can flexibly react to all requirements stated and at the same time optimize their manufacturing processes.

Typical fields of application

With SINUMERIK, Siemens offers the suitable manufacturing solution for each medical application

  • Dental technology: One by one individually
    Tooth crowns, pontics, prostheses or inlays – in dental technology, single components must be individually adjusted to the anatomy of the respective patients. The automation of these processes using the SINUMERIK CNC provides decisive benefits, compared to the time-consuming and complex manual work.

  • Artificial joints as small series
    In most cases, artificial joints, for example, knee or hip joints, are manufactured in standard sizes, as small series. Besides perfect surfaces, the focus lies on short setup times. CNC-controlled premium machines support prosthetic manufacturers in manufacturing the requested high quality products.

  • Instruments go into series production
    Turning-milling machines are ideal for the manufacture of complex instruments such as bone rasps. You can thus produce large series in a highly productive manner.


All benefits at a single glance

  • Surface quality that need not be reworked
    through innovative motion control and SINUMERIK MDynamics technology packages (milling)

  • Superior process reliability
    through integrated CAD/CAM solutions

  • Flexibility
    from the prototype through to mass production
