Medical Tooling

ALCA TOOLS Supply Performance Tooling Medical & Dental Industries

Performance tools are needed for medical precision engineering. At ALCA TOOLS we understand the specific challenges of the medical industry and we have the expertise and product ranges to improve surface finish, reduce cycle times and increase productivity. We provide optimized machining solutions and cutting tools for your specific applications.

Dental

In this difficult sector the highly abrasive materials such as zirconia, cobalt chrome and titanium make tooling selection even more crucial. In addition the component size, presents its own set of challenges not only for the machinist but also for the manufacturers of the cutting tools. ALCA TOOLS can offer a wide range of tool geometries, coatings as well as the smallest diameter tooling for the applications that the dental industry demands.

Instruments

The Instrument manufacturing sector is extremely competitive and demanding. As with other areas of this industry ALCA TOOLS have a vast range of tooling from a number of the world’s leading manufacturers to help our clients deliver precision products. Irrespective of the raw material, the vast range of instrument machining presents its own set of challenges for our clients and we help overcome them.

Orthopaedics

The ever evolving medical orthopaedics industry demands that manufacturers provide a continuous stream of innovative products. ALCA TOOLS offer many machining tooling systems, work holding, grades and geometries to overcome the issues that arise from machining stainless steel, titanium and cobalt chrome. The vast array of complex shapes having to be machined although can be challenging, are overcome with our range of round shank and indexable tooling.

Cutting Tools for Hip Replacements

Cutting Tools for Hip Replacements

Be it Cobalt chrome or Ti-6Al4V, both materials are difficult to machine materials, particularly when milling, due to their extremely abrasive characteristics. The key to success is reducing chatter, and resisting heat via friction while maintaining cost performance on the tool itself. OSG’s HY-PRO® CARB and HY-PRO® CARB VGX series end mills achieve these three keys to success.

Cutting Tools for Knee Replacements

Cutting Tools for Knee Replacements

Materials such a Ti-6Al4V present significant machining challenges, especially during milling, as heat from cutting forces transfers very rapidly back into the cutting tool, instead of dispersing with the chips. Tools like OSG’s 4 & 5-flute variable pitch HY-PRO® CARB VGx end mill series have been designed to reduce vibration while resisting the higher cutting temperatures encountered when milling Titanium.
