MT3 is a versatile platform capable of grinding, milling, and turning in one setup. The precision that is required for medical components and the toughness of the materials such as titanium and surgical steel in medical machining requires an approach to machining that reduces setups and allows for the best process (or processes) to be used to produce the part. Today’s Medical Developments recently featured MT3 in their magazine to give their readers a glimpse into the machine and its specifications for medical machining.

For medical machining, there numerous considerations for machine tool selection. Spindle speeds, horsepower, machine working envelope, programming, and versatility are all considerations that are taken into account. The versatility of MT3 allows maximum productivity for your company when machining medical components. MT3 can take the place of three machines and take setups down to one. The machine features a large work envelope that can handle parts up to a 48″ swing. The ability to mill, turn, and grind on the machine means that a complete part can be produced in one setup, reducing work in process and allowing you to more quickly react to your customers.
Medical components have tough materials that require a machine with enough power to effectively process them and high spindle speeds to optimize the use of your tools. With a 30kw motor capable of 10,000 RPM, MT3 has the capability to remove material efficiently. When coupled with our robotic cell and Alien claw gripper, the right spindle and tool can be programmed for each part of the process, making the machine flexible enough to handle a multitude of medical components such as hips, knees and spines.
