Micro machiningMicro machining is a key enabling technology for medical components. Our production floor is filled with precision CNC Swiss Machines operated by trained specialists to produce the highest quality, micro-machined parts for medical applications.

Our development cell is ready to produce your first articles for approval. And, machinery is identical in the development and production areas to allow for easy transfer to full-line production.  Our expanding capacity for high-volume wire EDM machining offers precision repeatability of the smallest parts with complex shapes, fine holes or other special designs.

Precious Metals Micro machining and Nitinol Micro machining can be provided according to your specifications.
