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.
The tapered hole machining process demands a strong edge line to hold up uneven surfaces at entry and exit points, as well as a sharp primary land for difficult-to-cut materials, such as titanium (Ti) or heat-resistant super alloys (HRSA). DIAEDGE Cutting Tools' high-quality, well-designed products are an ideal solution to meet these machining needs for a perfectly precise part every time.
The DIAEDGE DSA CNC drill is specially designed for drilling titanium (Ti) alloys for orthopedic tapered holes in hip replacement components. The innovated TRI-Cooling Technology® coolant hole geometry combined with the specially designed thin margin minimizes contact area with hole surface and overcomes heat buildup at the cutting edge.
SFM 130-150 FPR .002-0.012
DIAEDGE's MFE flat bottom drill with chip-thinning geometry and flute design gives excellent hole location and straightness as well as an ideal solution for tapered hole accuracy when machining medical-grade stainless steel (SS) for hip replacement components.
SFM 80-100 FPR 0.001-0.0079
Drilling tapered holes in medical-grade stainless steel (SS) can cause machining challenges and delays in an already slow machining process. The DIAEDGE MMS Drilling Series is specially designed to improve performance with innovative TRI-Cooling Technology®, concave edges, and special margins to maximize
tool life and optimal machining.
SFM 98-328 IPR 0.003-0.011
Machining in hard-to-machine materials, such as heat-resistant and titanium (Ti) alloys and medical-grade stainless steel (SS), causes difficulty machining hip replacement components with tapered hole applications — varying depths produce vibrations. VQ has irregular flute helix design, reduces vibrations, plus a corner radius for edge line security to extend tool life.
