Polishing Medical Implants
The recently introduced Kemet Ball Polishing Machine can polish cups and balls (heads), for Hip Joints, to a mirror finish with a roundness accuracy of 3 microns. The simple 2 stage process is both reliable and repeatable. The machine can process all joint sizes and materials up to 100mm diameter. It can also easily be adapted for other round parts.
The Tibial Polishing System has been developed for the finishing of replacement Knee parts for faster production times. This was not previously possible using hand polishing methods. Manufacturers now have the added benefits of improved product quality, greatly reduced costs and faster production. All Kemet Polishing Systems, be they small manual processes or large fully automated cells are serviced and supported by Kemet. The Company is also a major manufacturer of polishing consumables and as such is able to take full responsibility for all aspects of production relating to one of its finishing processes. All process development work for customers is being carried out free-of-charge.
Kemet’s ability to develop, supply and support such processes has made the Company a global leader in this technology.
