Material Expertise

When designing any medical device, the right material choice plays a critical role in the performance, biocompatibility and longevity of the part. With decades of machining experience, rms Company has the capability to work with a wide range of medical grade materials. This accumulated knowledge is invaluable when it comes to supporting your component requirements. With an applied understanding of material properties and machining characteristics we can select the proper tooling to reduce variability, maintain tolerances, extend tool life and control costs. This practical knowledge of how materials “act” during the machining process can also be applied to a robust Design for Manufacturability (DFM) process.
