New Solid-Carbide Tools Boost Knee Implant Machining Speeds

Seco Tools has introduced a cutting tool product line specifically designed for machining medical knee implants. The new Jabro medical range of solid-carbide cutters are suitable for high-speed machining and other aggressive milling strategies designed to shorten knee implant cycle times by as much as 50%.

"The tools' continuous grades and optimized coatings result in enhanced part surfaces that reduce, and often eliminate, the need for polishing or fine finishing operations. These features also promote enhanced process stability and long tool life," said a company spokesperson.

The Jabro medical range includes nine advanced geometries and 39 tools, most of which are part of the Jabro Tornado high-speed cutting family. Each geometry is designed for particular applications in the machining of tibial tray and femoral knee implant components. Additionally, because these new dedicated tools are designed to excel in the machining of CoCr (cobalt-chrome) and 3-D printed Ti6Al4V ISO-S12 parts, they maximize machine performance for other medical implant components as well, including parts used in hip replacements and bone plates.
