The modern medical industry requires absolute precision in manufacturing the highly specialized tools and equipment used in the trades. Simultaneously, medical devices and their components are often extremely small with complex machined features and intricate designs, further complicating the production process. That’s why CNC micromachining services have become increasingly crucial in today’s medical field and healthcare sector.
Micromachining takes all of the advantages of conventional CNC machining services for medical products and further optimizes the process for miniature components and small parts. At HyTech Spring and Machine, we can provide custom micromachined medical components at ±0.0003” tolerances while maintaining the highest degree of repeatability possible. Our repeatable precision allows us to manufacture a wide range of unique medical device components needed for reliable performance and functionality.

Modern Applications for Micromachining in the Medical and Healthcare Industry:
Custom Machined Cannula Products
Cannulae of various complex shapes are used extensively in the modern medical market. These devices must be precisely cut exactly to length with burr-free ends and notched, flared, crimped, and grinded using the most highly accurate micromachining methods possible.
We utilize CNC micromachining to manufacture various components for endoscopic devices commonly used for minimally invasive medical procedures. These complex components often include extremely intricate features such as micro-sized housings for cameras and sensors, articulation mechanisms, and other intricate parts that require high precision and delicacy.
Medical Microfluidic Components
Microfluidic devices are used in many modern medical diagnostics applications including drug delivery systems and lab testing equipment. CNC micromachining allows us to reliably produce the required intricate miniature part features such as microchannels and microvalves which precisely control fluid flow at extremely small scales.
Surgical Instruments and Tools
Finally, CNC micromachining is often employed to manufacture components for intricate surgical instruments like forceps, scalpels, retractors, and miniature surgical scissors. The micromachining process allows for the tight tolerances and complex geometries essential for these delicate pieces of equipment.
