Medical technology

The medical technology industry is demanding and multifaceted. Medical products must meet standards in patient comfort, safety, documentation, and cost. If you develop sophisticated equipment for diagnostics, treatment, lab work, and medical rooms, or if you machine exceptionally high-quality, durable, precision-fitting implants, we can support you with appropriately optimized measurement technology and intelligent machine-tool controls.

Encoders for medical technology

Accuracy is a critical factor in many medical technology applications, including radiation treatment, lab sample placement, and surgical robots. For these and many other applications, you can rely on rotary encoders, angle encoders, and linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN, AMO, NUMERIK JENA, RENCO, and RSF.

CNC controls in medical technology

Milling and turning controls from HEIDENHAIN excel in the machining of orthodontic and orthopedic implants. Along with attaining high accuracy and surface quality, our controls can handle difficult implant alloys and small-batch production starting with lot size one.
