Surgical precision in the operating theatre demands surgical precision in the manufacturing of the instruments being used. Crossen Engineering’s precision metal forming delivers high quality, bespoke surgical instruments made from medical-grade metals, and the benefit of our engineering know-how every step of the way.
With design, tooling, prototyping and full production all done at our premises outside Belfast, N. Ireland, you stay in control of manufacturing schedules and get to market more quickly.
From prototyping and small-scale runs through to full production of hundreds of thousands of components, we deliver cost-effective manufacturing of surgical components.
Working with ferrous and non-ferrous medical-grade metals, we’ll find the perfect material for your product and press to any thickness between 0.125mm (copper) and 8mm (steel).
We’ve engineered metal components for ostomy, respiratory and surgical equipment, and understand the exacting requirements of manufacturing for the medical industry.
Developing world-leading precision technologies for surgical and medical uses, our client approached us for assistance in the development of an innovative new electrode component for an atraumatic serrations sealing instrument. The new component gives more consistent compression so that the device can seal surgical cuts before bleeding starts, while also removing unwanted tissue more quickly.
The team started forming components made from stainless steel allowing for sharp, accurate cuts. During this time, our client shared with us that the parts were to be over- moulded providing a temperature-resistant protection for the electrode.
Given our expertise in medical-grade Metal Forming and Plastic Injection Moulding, and our ability to carry out a “single-source solution” our client issued all product production to be conducted at our facilities. For the over-mould we used a 50% glass-fibre reinforced polyacrylamide compound, which was used to ensure that the electrode was secure, strong and creep resistant.
“Crossen Engineering’s professionalism and precision expertise has been a real asset to our products’ development, quality and emergence to market.
The team’s attention to detail made for a professional and advantageous partnership.”
