Tight tolerance micro-stamped components allow device engineers to create unique geometry for implants, electrical circuit path designs, robotic platforms and medical instrumentation that push the physical device boundaries to microscopic levels.

Create miniature, complex parts with precision stamping

Technological advances are driving the demand for miniature, complex parts created from difficult-to-form materials. Medical devices and often call for more than just precise metal forming and metal stampings. MW Life Sciences’ precision stamping and metal forming can meet the challenges of the medical industry, producing small parts with complex geometries in low or high volumes.

Metal stamping: progressive die, shallow draw, eyelet and fourslide

Creating, stamping and assembling precision components out of metal is a core competency of MW Life Sciences. Our significant investment in equipment, metrology, quality processes and top-notch professionals ensures the components we produce meet all the demanding performance attributes needed for a successful device. Everything you need to transform your challenging concept into a finished product is in one place. That includes power presses ranging from conventional to one of the industry’s largest rosters of fourslide presses, allowing part fabrication from both annealed and tempered materials.

We have extensive in-house metal stamping capabilities, including the design and manufacture of progressive dies and fourslide tools as well as precision machining. We can perform all required secondary manufacturing processes like deburring and tapping as well. These resources are matched with deep metallurgical understanding  and exceptional customer support for every metal stamping and forming product. Your workpiece will be shaped and formed to the optimal geometry — even down to thicknesses to one thousandth of an inch — with precision tolerances.

Engineering support for micro-components

Recently, the global expansion of connected devices has pushed design capabilities smaller. This includes data collection/circuit components that allow medical and pharmaceutical OEM’s to reduce the physical size of their products. We believe in using a team approach to engineer the right solution for your product. We harness a collective 700-plus years of engineering expertise from product design/development, tool design, quality processing and manufacturing excellence that our team members bring to support your project.

We deploy engineering assets up front to optimize the design of precision metal components including surgical skin staples, titanium ligation clips, battery contacts and implantable parts. These metal components make up the heart of device instrumentation inherent in laparoscopic and endoscopic devices.
