“As medical implants and instruments become increasingly complex with smaller configurations, precision becomes the most critical parameter in their manufacturing. No wonder medical device manufacturers (MDMs) are now more intent than ever on quality assurance—precise dimensions, tight tolerances, surface finishes, and validated processes and performance. This demands advanced machining equipment operated by skilled workers with extensive knowledge about material behavior as well as the intricacies and limits of the machines they operate. Critical dimensions that don’t meet specifications could negatively impact product performance and perhaps even harm patients.
“Tennessee-based Odyssey Medical Technology, with its expansive, state-of-the-art equipment and proficient employees well versed in CAD/CAM, 5-axis milling, Swiss-turn machines, along with electrical discharge machining (EDM), entirely fulfills the aforementioned criteria. It provides advanced manufacturing of medical devices for orthopedics, spine, trauma, reconstruction, and other extremities with complete in-house implant finishing capabilities.”
