OD Whirling

The example of thread whirling when applied on implants made from titanium or stainless steel demonstrates how precision can be increased, using the right tool while at the same time reducing costs.

The demand for implants such as bone screws and plates in medical and dental surgery has been growing rapidly for a number of years. The necessary parts for such implants are mainly made from stainless steel or titanium in order to ensure a high level of patient compatibility. Therefore, the associated requirements for implants in terms of precision and finish are extremely high.
