Machining to the highest medical industry standards is essential when manufacturing hip replacement components for the human body.
The demanding materials of titanium (Ti), cobalt-chrome (Co-Cr), and stainless steel (SS) needed to create hip system components cause challenges
in the machining process. However, DIAEDGE Cutting Tools provide solutions such as high-quality customized grades, technically superior coating,
and a variety of inert geometries to meet the high tolerance and standards to enable the production of a perfect part every time.
Machining hip stem components calls for high-quality cutting tools. DIAEDGE Cutting Tools’ solutions offer a variety of sharp ground positive insert geometries and variable curve radius-cutting for hard-to-cut materials – such as titanium (Ti) – which maximizes machining efficiencies and increases tool life, while maintaining the tight tolerances
and high surface finish required for hip replacement components.
DIAEDGE's VQ Series offers irregular flute helix geometry and Smart Miracle coating to help reduce vibrations and improve surface finishes in heat-resistant and titanium (Ti) alloys as well as medical-grade stainless steel (SS). The VQ makes the ideal choice for machining the perfect hip stem component that exceeds medical machining standards every time.
