THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY
If the Aerospace Industry demanded precision above all, the Medical Industry demands sterility as much as precision. That’s something that you may have known since you got your first vaccine. Most CNC machines which work for this industry are multi-spindle and contain multi-turret lathes.
These special features allow the company to turn out components for hospital equipment, pulse meters, blood purification systems and mother medical devices. They are also useful in the mass production of disposable items and non-embeddable components.
High-torque milling and turning spindles are heavily demanded in this industry to enable users to process all substrates currently used in the medical device and orthopedic implant markets. Moreover, CNC machines recommended in the medical industry are those which can properly handle Titanium, Cobalt Chromium, Nitinol and others.
THE MILITARY INDUSTRY
This industry’s main concern aside from precision is security. In fact, if you try to search online the CNC-manufactured materials or CNC machines used in this industry, no matter how famous their reputation is, the manufacturer cannot display (pictures of) the materials that they have produced for their clients. They can only display products which they are used in.
This industry deals heavily with Inconel, Titanium, Kevlar, Monel and Hastealloy; so most CNC machines recommended in the Military industry must be able to handle those.
Famous CNC standards evaluators in this industry include the Department of Defense (DOD), the Mil Spec (Military Specifications) and other selected military sectors.
The top managers of these industries also demand their CNC machines to be purchased from CNC machine suppliers which adhere to the International Standards Organization (ISO). And because these industries are CNC-dependent, their shops can occupy a vast amount of space. Basically, that makes no room for old school methods and errors.
