What Materials Work Best for Custom Medical Instruments?

 

Titanium and titanium alloys are mainly used in orthopedic surgery, especially in limb and cranial reconstruction, for the production of various fracture internal fixation devices, artificial joints, skull and dura, artificial heart valves, teeth, dental beds, brackets and crowns.

 

Cobalt alloys are more suitable for the manufacture of long-term implants with severe in vivo loading conditions, mainly used for the manufacture of artificial hip joints, knee joints, joint fasteners, bone plates, bone nails and bone pins.

 

Stainless steel is used for fracture avoidance medical devices: knives, scissors, hemostats, needles, artificial joints, internal fracture fixators, orthodontics, artificial heart valves, etc.

 

Medical precious metals are the general term for gold (An), silver (Ag), platinum (Pt) and their alloys. Because of their excellent electrical conductivity, they are often used to make implantable electrodes or electronic detection devices.

 

 

Polyethylene is among the top medical-grade plastics because of its cost-effectiveness, impact resistance, corrosion resistance and robust structural integrity during frequent sterilization cycles, making it suitable for the manufacture of prostheses.

 

Polypropylene is stress, crack, impact and fatigue resistant and is used in the manufacture of plastic components for medical devices such as disposable syringes, oxygenator membranes, prescription bottles, connectors and knuckle prostheses.

 

PVC materials are durable, strong and rigid. It is suitable for the manufacture of hemodialysis devices, catheters, cardiac catheters and prosthetic materials.

 

Polycarbonate has good heat resistance and biocompatibility and is suitable for the manufacture of medical components such as IV connectors for renal dialysis, cardiac surgery.

Tuofa's conception of 3D printing medical devices

 

Since 2006, Toppan has been developing and designing medical parts using the latest 3D printing technology. With the advantage of manufacturing complex structures and low volume customization, we are trying to optimize the design and manufacturing of some surgical instruments. Many surgical instruments integrate multiple parts that are assembled together by screws or using welding.

If these surgical instruments are manufactured through 3D printing technology, it is possible to optimize the design of surgical instruments, reduce the number of assembled parts, or even design these instruments as a monolithic, functionally integrated instrument, and then manufacture these structurally complex products through 3D printers .


 
 
The future development direction of metal medical materials

 

1, physicians and patients want to use the best metal medical materials, long-term use of safety and reliability is the basic requirements for medical metal materials. Therefore, the future development of metal medical materials is still to continuously improve the use of safety, reliability and biocompatibility.

2, the establishment of a systematic basic database on the toxicity of metal elements to the human body, the use of big data research and analysis of the correlation between the toxicity of metal elements inside and outside the human body, as well as the implantation of metal materials and the human body molecular level research. Using molecular biology techniques to study the impact of metal elements on human tissue from the molecular level, so as to further understand the impact of metal medical materials on the human body.

3, the future of metal medical materials to further expand the type, the use of cost to further reduce. Although in the past few decades, metal medical materials have been developed rapidly, however, in the clinical use is still a limited number of. Therefore, research and development of high corrosion resistance, high wear resistance, high fatigue strength and high toughness raw body alloy is still important.

4, the metal medical materials currently being used, the use of new technologies such as 3D printing and new processes to complete the custom printing of medical devices. The reality is that the patient's condition is different and the surgery to be performed by the doctor is different, each surgery has its uniqueness, customized printing for this different situation will provide convenience for doctors and patients, and more conducive to the success of the surgery.


 
 
What you should know about auto parts?

 

1. Complexity of auto parts: Every car is made up of nearly 30,000 parts, and only when every part works correctly can a car drive properly, safely and economically.

2. Get the right auto parts: Get OEM (original equipment supplier) or aftermarket components made for your specific make and design of car.

3. Service Guarantee: Make sure you review and understand any service guarantees or warranties that come with your auto parts before you buy.

4. Storage: Always store auto parts in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight to ensure they last longer.
