Now more than ever, medical products are in high demand. When designing metal stamping parts for medical applications, there are a few key considerations that are unique to medical applications. Keep these considerations in mind when designing and choosing metal stamping for the best product.

Considerations for Medical Applications


Materials & Coating

The right materials are critical for medical applications. Choosing the right materials ensures a high-quality part that can withstand daily use. Dayton Rogers manufacturers’ various medical items out of aluminum, such as enclosures and chassis, as well as items out of steel & stainless steel for instrumentation and equipment.

When creating metal stamped and metal formed parts for the medical industry, the right plating too is critical. Dayton Rogers uses accredited vendors key to your medical metalforming projects:

· Anodizing

· Hard Coat Anodizing

· Electropolishing

· Powder Coating

· Zinc Plating


When it comes to medical applications, precision is critical. Everything must fit together exactly, without any variations. When designing medical parts, it’s important to select the right tolerance. Flatness tolerances are also crucial to consider when designing. The specific tolerance will depend on the part and material, but it’s important to consider at all stages of the manufacturing process.
