Torque Handle for the Orthopedic Industry
At Advanced Industries Inc., we are a certified manufacturer of quality components for the medical industry. We produced the torque handle highlighted here of for use in an orthopedic application. With our latest technology equipment, sophisticated programming tools, and advanced technical capabilities, we provided products that met strict industry quality standards.
Our 9-axis, multi-function turning center, driven by the powerful features of CAM software, was the key piece of equipment we used for this project. Leveraging this turning center’s broad scope of machining functions, we were able to produce this part complete in a single operation. The flexibility of our shop operations allowed us to handle this project on a priority basis and shift work over to other equipment in order to meet a two-week deadline.
Constructed from 6061 aluminum, the torque handle featured overall dimensions of 1.5” in diameter x 6.5” in length. By harnessing the full range of this machine’s power and its precision control systems, we upheld extremely close tolerances of ±.0002”, per the client specification. Our quality control process involved first piece, in-process, and final inspection of all workpieces. We used advanced metrology tools and precisely calibrated gauges to perform and document quality analytics.
This custom torque handle features superior quality, robust construction. The efficiency of our machining operations allowed us to provide the customer with attractive pricing within their budget parameters. We have developed a long-term relationship with this medical manufacturer by providing them with all of the essential elements that a good supplier provides – quality products, attention to detail with packaging and shipping, responsive customer service, and on-time delivery.
