4 Main Ways of Medical Device Machining at Falcon

1. 5 axis machining

Falcon 5-axis machining process is particularly suited for the machining of high-accuracy, intricate geometries and can significantly improve processing efficiency and reduce processing time. Five-axis machining has wide applications in industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, and defense.

2. Swiss machining

Swiss machining technique is particularly suited for long and slender parts for medical devices. Our CNC Swiss machining service can maintain exceptional precision and repeatability, making it ideal for high-volume production runs that require consistent quality and accuracy for the medical industry.

3. Micro machining

Micro machining service is a critical process in the production of miniature components used in medical applications. It involves the use of precision tools and machines to create small parts with intricate geometries and tight tolerances.

4. Sinker EDM and WEDM

Sinker electrical discharge machining (EDM) and wire EDM (WEDM) are advanced machining processes that utilize electrical discharges to remove material from workpieces. Sinker EDM is ideal for producing complex shapes with sharp internal angles and deep ribs, making it well-suited for the fabrication of high-precision medical components.

4 Keys about Falcon of Medical Manufacturing Quality and Assurance

1. We maintain international certifications such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 16949 to save new customers of our high-volume medical parts from the third-party audit costs that come with choosing a more powerful supplier like Falcon.

2. PPAP Compliance: PPAP is used for quality control in the production process of medical devices or components. Falcon provides PPAP to medical industry customers to verify that our engineers have correctly understood all requirements of the customer's engineering design records and specifications. This also proves Falcon's strong supply capacity to continuously meet these requirements during actual production.

3. Process FMEA: Falcon's engineering team carefully analyzes the potential failures and consequences of parts and production processes according to the FMEA process after receiving customer drawings. Necessary measures are taken in advance to help medical industry customers avoid all risks before formal production, improving product quality and reliability.

4. AQL Inspection Standard: AQL stands for ACCEPTANCE QUALITY LIMIT. The choice of quality level is a focus of attention for both suppliers and customers. As a compliant supplier, Falcon is proficient in strictly sampling and inspecting batch products' quality according to the quantity of medical parts batches and the customer's inspection level requirements. So far, our produced medical parts have a high probability of passing the AQL standard, up to 99.99%. AQL has different sampling quantities for different requirements, and our medical customers usually use general level II standards for appearance inspection and special inspection S4 standards for size sampling. Refer to the AQL page for detailed standards and inspection quantities.
