Welcome to Med-Tech
opening up the first e-newsletter of Med-Tech
Precision, a new magazine covering the design and
manufacture of precision medical products in the
orthopedics, cardiological, and general surgery
Here is what the magazine is about, and
what we hope it can do for you.
are getting smaller and smaller, which is increasing
industry’s reliance on precision manufacturing
technology. And that means an entirely different set of
expectations are emerging when it comes to making the
devices and components for these applications. Things
like manufacturing tolerances and materials selection
have to be considered differently than for conventional
medical device manufacturing.
These trends are
having the most significant impact in the orthopedics,
cardiology, and general surgery sectors. So that is
where we are focusing our coverage.
Precision will be devoted to exploring those
differences and advising our readers on how best to
navigate them. It will also be able to focus on concerns
exclusive to manufacturers of orthopedics, cardiological
devices, and general surgery instruments.
debut issue, we have two features tackling design and
materials-selection considerations in orthopedics. One
argues that polycarbonate-urethane makes for a
good material choice for hip implants. The other looks
at the impact that bioceramics could have on the design
and function of future orthopedic implants.

manufacturing devices that require extremely tight
tolerances or multiple functions.
