The Microconic system benefits orthopedic bone screws, miniature precious metal components for pacemakers, and other implantables; machined surgical components made of hypodermic needle tubing; and surgical instrument components. Here’s one example – dental implants.
Production rate went from 18pph to 32pph, a 44% cost savings. In addition, a hand deburring operation was eliminated due to the cut-off being on the opposite end.
Cost of the Microconic system was recouped in 64 production hours; a $14,015 saved in direct production costs of a 10,000-piece order.
