It’s no secret that components manufactured for the medical device industry have extremely strict quality requirements. After all, these devices are expected to function correctly every time without fail, and often people’s lives depend on it. Precision gears are no exception. Gears can be found in many types of medical devices, including various hospital and surgical equipment. In gear manufacturing, medical applications often come with a unique set of priorities, including very small size, and ability to function at high speeds and low noise levels. In addition, special materials are often used.
