It is well-known that rapid prototyping is a must for medical device development. CNC machining is the most widely used prototyping method. This article explores the production details for the CNC machined medical device components.

1. For common CNC machining medical device components, the general material choice is ABS. It is easy to make and good-looking after surface treatment.

2. For CNC machining transparent components, the material can be PMMA (acrylic) and clear PC. The prototypes in those materials are with incredibly high transparency after polishing. They can be the same as the end-use product.

3. For CNC machining medical device components that need abrasion resistance, we choose POM or PA. The two materials cannot be bonded so they must be manufactured in one piece.

4. For CNC machined medical device components that need high toughness, we choose PA or PP. The two materials cannot be bonded and must be made in one piece.

5. For CNC machining medical device components that require high temperatures, the choice of materials is epoxy resin, Bakelite, black PC, and PA. Only the black PC material can be glued. Others must be produced integrally.

6. The surface treatments for CNC machining medical device components are generally painting, electroplating, sanding, silk screening, pad printing, etc. The paint can be glossy, matte, sandy, transparent color, translucent color, fluorescent color, rubber oil, and other effects. In this case, CNC machined medical device components can be the same as those of mass production.

In conclusion, it is necessary to be demanding of CNC machined medical device components to avoid possible issues. And that is how X Rapid Technologies requires itself.
