CEDAR GROVE, NJ - As a specialist in the production of precision parts for companies with rigorous specifications, Metal Cutting Corporation is furthering the use of 3D printing in the medical device industry through the company’s capabilities in polishing metal parts. Metal Cutting can achieve Ra 0.1 µm and below, depending on the type of metal used and the size of the parts, with close tolerances and minimal material removal.

The polishing techniques utilized by Metal Cutting enable medical device manufacturers to achieve the proper surface finishes while maintaining a part’s complex 3D design details. For example, Metal Cutting’s method for polishing metal parts allows certain surfaces of 3D printed orthopedic implants (such as knee implants) to be made as smooth as possible, for good wear characteristics, while other surfaces maintain the roughness and porosity required for good implant-to-tissue fusion. These characteristics help to ensure the implant fuses correctly to the adjacent bone while minimizing the risk of pain in the patient and improving the wear and life of the implant.

Cedar Grove, N.J. based Metal Cutting Corporation has been perfecting the art and science of burr-free, tight tolerance cutting of metal parts for almost 50 years. All of its proprietary abrasive and EDM cut-off machines offer unmatched precision and high-speed capability with burr-free results specially tailored to any type of material, diameter, cut, and polish.
