Prosthetics is one of the key fields in medical technology sector. Bionic prosthetics, for example, can help a person regain their ability to sense touch and pick up an object.
On a similar note, innovations in dental technology make it possible to manufacture dentures and braces that meet the highest standards in terms of aesthetics, functionality, durability, and tolerability.
In addition to traditional chrome-nickel steels like V4A and V2A, the materials used in this field include heat-resistant alloys such as Inconel 718 and Hastelloy, high-performance materials such as cobalt-chrome and titanium, and a range of other non-metallic materials.
There are a large number of materials that are difficult to machine, including cobalt-chrome, which is frequently used in implants. When machining them, the primary considerations include process reliability, minimizing burr formation, delivering a high surface quality, and meeting the highest standards in terms of hygiene.
