What are the best materials for medical applications?

Titanium
High-strength internal joint and skeletal substitutes. Titanium is strong, temperature resistant, 3D printable, lightweight and corrosion resistant.

Stainless steel and Inconel
Various alloys of steel being their temperature resistance, strength and corrosion resistance. Ideal for swiss-type surgical equipment.

Medical-grade silicone rubber, TPE
Used in the manufacture of custom fittings and seals. These materials have laudable electrical, chemical and thermal resistance. They are bio-compatible, making them suitable for applications that may involve skin contact.

POM, PEEK, PEI
PEEK is a heat-sterilizable material that can be used as high-performance plastic. PEEK, POM and PEI are all suitable for use as joint replacements. They are high temperature and creep resistant, and sterilizable.

Nylon and ABS
Excellent for use in medical appliances. These materials are 3D-printable and very affordable.  

Common Medical Manufacturing Services

CNC Machining Services

CNC Machining Services

Choose from 3, 4 or 5-axis indexed and continuous milling and turning machining operations to make low, mid and high-volume precision parts. With CNC machining, high-quality parts can be made at low cost as no fixed tooling costs are involved. Through the aid of the design CAD file, quick modifications can be incorporated into the product development cycle. CNC machining is the best solution for high-precision medical parts that require diversity, tight tolerances and quick lead times.

Injection Molding

Through injection molding, First Part is able to aid the medical industry in manufacturing plastic containers, test tubes, medical grade quality surgical equipment, housings and casings for lab components, implantable components and orthopaedic parts. Using a wide array of tool steels, insert molding, over molding, 2-part molding and more, we are able to create highly accurate, scalable and repeatable parts when making components for medical and dental applications at mass production volumes.

Medical 3D Printing Services

Medical 3D Printing Services

First Part medical 3D printing service is suitable for managing bone structures, dental appliances, artificial joint replacements and customized prosthetics with the most complex design structures. Our services also cover rapid prototyping of medical devices for urgent deployment in surgeries. Made from the most suitable materials, medical 3D printed parts are strong, lightweight and bio-compatible.

Urethane Casting Services

Urethane Casting Services

Ready-to-use and functional copies of a 3D master model is formed using recyclable silicone models quick and cost-effectively. Polyurethane vacuum castings are excellent for medical device prototyping, testing and product development.
Devices manufactured with this method, have an exceptional level of cosmetic finish that make them look and feel like injection-molded plastic.
