Medical implants is a very critical area of application for deep hole drilling. These implants are characterized by the special surgical grade Titanium and steel materials. These have high strength to weight ratio and are resistive to corrosion. Usually medical implants require deep hole gun drilling operations where very small diameter holes are to be generated. Holes as small as Dia. 1.5mm are to be drilled into Titanium material in slender workpieces.
The length to diameter ratios can go upto 350 - 400. Titanium is a good bio compatible material, but is difficult to drill into. Precihole’s 3 decades of machine tool manufacturing experience makes this challenge disappear. Special arrangements in the design of our machines allow drilling of long, accurate holes with relatively impressive drilling parameters. These machines are used to drill into components like Bone screws, Femoral Nails, Tibial nails and other surgical instruments.
