Stainless Steel Knee Component
Past projects at Twin City EDM include the orthopedic knee surgery component. This project, now completed, demonstrates our ability to form unique geometric shapes, create tight corner radii, and meet critical surface finish requirements for the very demanding medical device industry.
The precision execution of this single component part was critical to product development. Its successful manufacture required strong attention to detail. We were able to come through with these intricate details using the wire EDM machining method, which enabled us to cut materials that other machinery would not have been able to handle.
State of the Art Machinery to Complete the Task
The stainless steel knee component was completed using our 4-axis CNC milling, micro hole burning, and wire EDM machinery, which enabled our knowledgeable and highly skilled craftsmen to fabricate a thin-walled part from 17-4 PH stainless steel. It featured overall dimensions of 4.5276" in length, 0.7480" in width, and 0.6496" in height, and successfully achieved dimensional tolerances of ± 0.025" and angular tolerances ± 0.5°, which were confirmed by rigorous dimensional and visual inspection processes. Additional operations called for heat treating and dry blasting to a uniform 32 RMS finish.
