Year after year, technology gets smaller as scientists continue to research new materials and develop new methods of manufacturing. With smaller size comes more precision.
Consider the medical industry and what doctors were capable of doing 50 years ago compared to modern surgical techniques. With minimal cutting of skin, surgeons can open up the affected area and perform procedures in a small part of the body without causing much pain or need for healing. Patients recover in just a few days after a medical procedure. Surgeons are able to do such procedures because of improvements in the tools and parts available to them to use. Modern manufacturing allows tiny parts to be produced accurately and efficiently.
But how does an industry keep track of small parts and make sure they are accurately formed, cleaned, treated, and made ready to sell? Products such as this Custom Canister for Small Medical Parts, made by Three M Tool of York, PA, are specifically designed to hold minuscule parts as they are sent through a degreasing process. It comes in a diameter of 3-9/16 inches and a height of either 8.95 or 18.95 inches. Perforated sheet metal lines this canister to allow it to expose parts to chemicals.
The medical industry needs parts that are produced with care and precision, and stainless steel canisters like this hold parts solidly through the process of being made ready for use. Welded together firmly, these metal canisters are firmly supported and secure to be used in manufacturing.
Another Three M Tool custom canister for micro sized medical parts comes in a diameter of 4 inches and a height of 15-1/2 inches. According to the website, it opens along the center so parts can easily be inserted and taken out.
Three M Tool designs and makes custom canisters and baskets of durable 304 stainless steel for manufacturing anything from medical parts to electronic switches. They offer many pre-made designs on their website but will custom-build a product for whatever needs a company may have.
Another product useful for cleaning medical parts is this Basket for Ultrasonic Cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning is used for extreme precision in cleansing parts such as surgical instruments in order to remove even the tiniest bits of dirt. Built to withstand high temperatures and extreme pressure, these custom wire baskets hold instruments as they go through the process of cleaning.
Next time you have to have surgery, console yourself by thinking about how modern technology has helped to ease the pain and amount of cutting necessary in surgery. New parts allow surgeons to perform their jobs quickly and efficiently. New equipment and techniques decrease the time needed to heal.
Products such as those from Three M Tool mentioned above allow industries to manufacture surgical instruments and other medical parts and clean and treat them to be ready to sell at top quality. Visit Three M Tool to view lists and images of the products they make for industry.
