Medical Die Casting and CNC Machining

Aluminum Parts for the Medical Device Industry

Aluminum is popular in the manufacture of components for medical devices and equipment. It is found in electronic monitoring housing components, other diagnostic devices, and therapeutic and prosthetic equipment as well as in various devices used in orthopedic, surgical and other areas of medical treatment. Aluminum is also used to make hospital trays and bedpans.

The advantages of using aluminum lie in its innate characteristics. Its high weight-to-strength ratio means that parts are light and flexible yet strong, durable and reliable. Aluminum’s malleability allows it to be easily formed into many different shapes. Plus, it is relatively low cost, offers thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance, and is non-toxic. Aluminum is also easily machined, can be finished in variety of ways, and is recyclable. 

Aluminum is ideal for medical applications because it resists damage from bodily fluids, strong cleaners and other corrosive liquids. Other metals do not perform as well when exposed to frequent chemical sanitation and sterilization.

CNC Machining of Die Cast Medical Devices

The G & M Die Casting team understands the medical device/equipment industry’s need for high-quality, safe parts and finishes that meet relevant regulations and standards. While we don’t produce biocompatible devices that are placed in the body, we do work with medical device, instrument and equipment manufacturers to create aluminum components that are ultimately used in the medical field.

In addition to die casting, we offer CNC machining for the medical industry. Let us evaluate your application and determine what processes and finishes are best. Our team has the expertise and experience to help you get from a drawing to the accurate, high-quality parts that meet your requirements — and exceed your expectations.
