Medical Device Machining

EPTAM is an FDA-registered medical machining company. Collaborating from prototype design to implant production; EPTAM has extensive experience in manufacturing all types of medical device applications. Designed exclusively to support the needs of our medical OEM customers, our dedicated medical manufacturing center machines medical-grade instruments and implants from a variety of FDA-approved and life-science-grade (LSG) polymer materials (i.e., PEEK Optima®, UHMW and Titanium implants).

With a thorough state-of-the-art "cradle to grave" documentation system, EPTAM has direct traceability of the delivered medical product; the documentation process begins with the pure material selection, complete manufacturing, and packaging through the life of the product.

Uncompromised Quality and No Implant Contamination Risks

Machining for Medical Applications

EPTAM's focus and experience on machining precision medical components gives our customers the confidence of knowing their implants meet specifications and quality requirements each and every time. Our FDA-registered team is aligned with advanced machining technologies and quality systems to deliver the highest quality components for even the most challenging implant medical applications.


Medical Industry

Intramedullary Nails

An intramedullary rod, also known as an intramedullary nail (IM nail) or inter-locking nail or Küntscher nail (without proximal or distal fixation), is a metal rod forced into the medullary cavity of a bone. IM nails have long been used to treat fractures of long bones of the body and are manufactured from Titinium.

PEEK Medical Applications

PEEK-OPTIMA® Machining for Medical Applications

PEEK-OPTIMA® polymers are used in a wide range of specialty medical applications that require non-metallic, long-term implantation. PEEK-OPTIMA® plastic implants exhibit a superior combination of strength, stiffness, and toughness allowing for implant design versatility. These qualities make it ideal for medical-device and plastic-implant applications.

Implantable PEEK OPTIMA® components are used in surgical procedures including spinal implants, hip, knee, and shoulder implants, pacemakers, shoulder anchors, fusion devices, dental caps, plates, and more.


Medical Bone Plates

Bone Plates

The implants used for internal fixation are made from stainless steel and Titanium, which are durable and strong. If a joint is to be replaced, rather than fixed, these implants can also be made of cobalt and chrome. Implants are compatible with the body and rarely cause an allergic reaction.

Polymer Implant Materials

UHMW-PE® Machining for Medical Applications

UHMW-PE® devices need to meet the growing trend toward minimally invasive surgery. Medical devices manufactured with UHMW-PE® allow freedom of design to meet challenges with low profiles, superior abrasion resistance, and flexibility. Due to their superior physical and mechanical properties, cleanliness, and consistency, medically implantable grades of UHMW-PE® have become the materials of choice for articulating surfaces, helping restore a higher quality of life to millions of patients worldwide.

Clean, Climate-Controlled Medical Manufacturing

Dry-Machining

7- and 5-axis machining capabilities employ dry-machining techniques that will not contaminate or chemically attack plastic parts.

Cellular Manufacturing Environment

Manufacturing cells and employee specialization deliver consistent quality control, ensure the most efficient work flow, and permit customers' products to run on any number of machines without costly tooling changes.

Live Tracking

GUI Workstations throughout the plant combined with barcode technology provide live tracking of all projects.

Microblast Deburring

Sodium-bicarbonate-based micro-blast stations ensure critical components are "Burr Free" at customer delivery. EPTAM's proven experience with the latest machining and deburring techniques ensure burr-free, clean parts to the highest standards.

Marking

Whether it is serial numbers, part numbers, text, or customer-supplied-logos, EPTAM's marking capabilities guarantee complete traceability of instruments and implants.

To support our unique manufacturing capabilities, EPTAM is DS/EN ISO:13485:2016 Certified, FDA #3005144609 Registered, has completed a customer 21 CFR audit, and has been customer surveyed and certified to produce polymer implants.
