Turning technologies enabling the production of medical devices components
Valtecne can execute high precision turning to manufacture complex mechanical parts for medical devices industry.
The company has at its disposal several CNC lathes. They include traditional fixed-head machines, both horizontal and vertical, as well as slanting head Swiss-type lathes.
The turning department can machine several materials, ranging from stainless steel AISI 630 and AISI 420B, to more valuable materials such as titanium, cobalt-chrome and special plastics for orthopaedics.
Fixed-head lathes are equipped with motorized tools suited to perform drilling. Swiss-type lathes are dedicated to smallest parts: machining is made from the raw bar, with turnable diameter up to 38mm.
Valtecne has adopted CAM software Esprit to program Swiss-type lathes. This enables the company to fully optimize machines setup, reducing overall lead time and production non-conformities.
