Medical Device Prototyping to Ensure the Accuracy of Life-Saving Devices

Medical device prototyping is a process that is crucial to medical device development and helps to ensure quality and proper function of a design before the device is used in its final application. At Aztalan Engineering, we take medical device machining very seriously, so prototyping is an important part of our process.

Orthopedic Implant Manufacturers Offer Precise Machining and Custom Services

At Aztalan Engineering, we use our precision CNC machining services and prototyping abilities to serve the medical implant industry. We are proud to be amongst several quality orthopedic implant manufacturers in the industry. Machining medical implants is a delicate process, so we understand that failure is not an option which is why we offer precise machining and careful prototyping to ensure we meet your exact specifications.


Engine Component Machining in the Automotive and Aerospace Industries

Either directly or indirectly, nearly everyone depends on machined goods in one way or another. Without machining, few of the goods and services that we have come to expect in our daily lives would be available. This is especially true when it comes to travel – we could not fly or drive without the parts machined for the automotive and aerospace industries. Nearly every aspect of a car or plane’s functionality is dependent on machined components.


Choosing the Precision Machining Company that Best Suits Your Needs

Precision machining is responsible for producing a multitude of intricate components that we use on a day-to-day basis; each piece requires the skill of a detail-oriented, highly trained machinist. Therefore, choosing the precision machining company that best suits your company’s needs is not a decision to take lightly. No matter your industry – from aerospace to medicine to energy – choosing a reliable company to meet your precision machining needs is imperative.


Aerospace Components Manufacturers – Providing Precision and Quality

Being one of the leading manufacturers of aerospace components is about dedication and hard work. Simply stated, understanding that you play an integral and key role in the construct of such a dynamic industry is valuable in the sense that you must be fully aware and understand that there’s very little room for error and that precision, which is key to how we at Aztalan Engineering operate, is pertinent to the functioning of other industries that are dependent upon your capabilities. We set the standard high with the services we provide to our customers.


Important Benefits of Oxygen Cleaning

Getting right down to it, in order for anything to be operative and functioning, maintenance and care must be managed. When it comes to those same components and assemblies that offer construct for industries, being operative and functioning is standard, and efficiency and high quality is always the goal. Thus, providing certified cleaning options is a necessity. At Aztalan Engineering, we are glad to offer ultrasonic cleaning as one of our specialties for industry and business solutions.


Tips on Designing Affordable Precision Machined Parts

Precision machined parts can be costly, but it doesn’t have to be, if you think outside the box. Taking the time to make clear drawings and design templates for the manufacturing company you choose to do the machine work for, can make all the difference. Additionally, choosing a manufacturing company that has extensive experience in the creation and assembly of precision machined parts will definitely help stay within your company’s budget.

Moreover, if you are not completely sure as to the kind of precision machined parts your project needs, speaking with experienced designers, machinists or knowledge management team members, like the ones at Aztalan Engineering, Inc., can help guide you to the right direction.

Drawing and Design

When designing a precision machined part, there are some elements you should consider. For example, creating shapes that are simple and small or that don’t waste material can help keep the overall project cost down. Think about the following factors:

  • Eliminate the need for sharp inside and outside corners, or if you cannot eliminate them, increase the radius of inside and outside corners.
  • For 3D parts, reduce the number of different hole diameters, or instead of using 3D parts, use 2D parts made from sheet material, which you can bolt or bend together to make 3D shapes.
  • Avoid fine details in shapes such as long protrusions, thin shapes, shapes with lots of material removed, etc.
  • Avoid the need for complex work-holding, as shapes with complex outer shapes are the most time consuming to setup for holding.

Precision Machined Parts Materials

There are several other ways to reduce the cost of your parts, including checking the pricing on different materials. For instance, it may help your company’s bottom-line to know that at times, harder materials tend be more expensive to use in manufacturing. Therefore, if you use a softer material such as aluminum, you can reduce the cost of the final product significantly.

Make sure to talk about your options with one of Aztalan Engineering’s experts during your design phase in order to work with the most cost-effective solutions for your product, rather than going back and trying to change everything later.
