The Medical Device Manufacturing Industry
Did you know that the United States is the largest medical device market in the world with a market size of around $148 billion? This industry is expected to reach $155 billion in 2017. As the industry grows, so does the need for the most effective ways to clean and manufacture medical devices. This is where micro-abrasive blasting can help in this process.
In this article, you’ll learn about micro-abrasive for medical device cleaning and manufacturing.
What is Micro-Abrasive Blasting?
Micro-abrasive blasting is a precision machining technology that was developed for drilling, cleaning, etching, deburring, cutting, and abrading. It is very effective at removing material on surfaces that are difficult to reach. Micro-abrasive blasting uses compressed air mixed with an abrasive media, which consist of micron-sized particles with sharp edges for cutting or impinging on work surfaces.
Medical devices are becoming smaller and more intricate. In fact, the type of cleaning method used plays an important role in how these devices are manufactured. If the device has minute imperfections, they should be removed to ensure that the device works properly. Micro-abrasive blasting is an effective method for cleaning small parts and is becoming more prevalent in the manufacturing of medical parts.
The medical device manufacturing industry has many uses for micro-abrasive blasting that will make the cleaning and manufacturing of medical devices a more effective and efficient process.
