When it comes to medical devices and their components, due to the importance and criticality of each individual part, the expectation of both quality and reliability must be unquestionable. The deep drawn process is one of the only manufacturing methods that can deliver an extreme level of quality and assurance when dealing with the creation of such small and delicate components. In conjunction, the supplier must be confident in the commitment to excellence of the manufacturer, as both have a responsibility to ensure that all medical devices and parts meet or exceed acceptable standards.

Five Deep Drawn Medical Component Examples

Deep drawn components have a wide range of applications in the medical field and a few examples are represented by the following:

  • Housing components for Implantable devices

  • Casings for Implanted Drug Delivery

  • Surgical Laser components

  • Connective parts for Implantation

  • Electronic part covers and slips for Implanted Electronics

These are just a small portion of the parts, components and tools, created using the deep drawn manufacturing method that are in use in the medical field. The manufacturing of deep drawn components allow metallic creations of different metal types to be utilized as required by medical professionals. This corresponds with the need for extreme quality, well engineered and designed parts that resist infection, corrosion and maintain the necessary characteristics prior to, during and post implantation.

Perhaps most importantly, and this can not be understated, is that the quality of the device or component must by all measures meet rigorous standards in design, engineering and overall quality. While there are numerous manufacturers on the market, few have the commitment to quality and the dedication to meeting excellence in all aspects of design, engineering and production. Only parts or components made by such a company should be utilized in a medical setting. Accurate Forming is just such a company.
