Meeting the specialized machining needs of our medical customers

For medical machining, there are unique considerations when it comes to machine tool usage and selection. With more than 20 years in the medical industry, Okuma has worked with the industry’s top OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, so we understand your specialized needs, such as how FDA certification and Advanced Manufacturing initiatives play a crucial role in your operation. Ultimately, we can deliver CNC machine solutions that strike the balance between quality control for your parts and maximum productivity for your company.

When machining implant components for hips, knees, spines, and even medical instruments, you may have to deal with longer cycle times and tougher base materials. Our multitasking machines are built meticulously from the ground up to cut the toughest materials, whether it’s titanium, cobalt-chrome, or surgical stainless steel. Our machines also feature innovations that offer detailed accountability and traceability for each part produced, which is critical for the stringent and costly requirements associated with medical machining, as well as FDA compliance.

In addition, the following features and capabilities help our medical customers achieve their manufacturing goals:

CNC Controls: Our OSP-P300 control is built using the Windows®-based, open-architecture platform. You can send production orders to your MRP systems right from the machine tool, track production with scanned barcodes, and generate reports to share with the management team.

Advanced Manufacturing: To help you meet FDA certification requirements, we can provide an Advanced Manufacturing “proving ground” where our medical experts can develop and demonstrate manufacturing enhancements that increase throughput and decrease your costs in a reliable, repeatable manner.

Hand Scraping: Since every Okuma machine is hand scraped on each mating surface, you can produce more parts over a longer timeframe. The result is increased accuracy, decreased costs, and maximized profitability for your operation.

Intelligent Technologies: From our Thermo-Friendly Concept to Turn-Cut, and from our cycle time reduction function to part accountability and traceability, our innovations are designed to maximize efficiency, and streamline your medical operation.

Customer Care: With our vast distribution network, you have 24/7/365 access to support, which includes $200 million parts inventory worldwide, $40 million parts inventory at Okuma in North Carolina, and $20 million distributor parts inventory in North America.

Partners in THINC: With our best-in-class technology partners we efficiently fulfill high-volume requirements such as in-process and post-process gaging, as well as offer seamless integration with peripheral equipment like gaging and robotics.
