Specifying Aluminium Machining For Medical Applications10th Nov 2020
Aluminium is not like stainless steel: there is no one ‘stand out’ grade that is the first choice for medical devices. There is no ‘316L’ of aluminium.
Instead, as a purchaser of medical component machining solutions, you are confronted with a plethora of aluminium grades – any, all or none of which may suit your specific medical application.
To suggest that’s a challenge is an understatement. But it also offers you a great opportunity to improve quality, consistency and savings. How so? Simply this…you won’t be on ‘316L autopilot’ as sometimes occurs in the world of stainless steel medical components.
