Case Histories

Hip Joint
An American manufacturer of medical parts was required to produce a 3° tapered tip, .515" long, blended to a .250" radius on the end of a family of parts.
  • The parts were made from difficult-to-machine cobalt chrome material.
THE SOLUTION:
Special Genesee inserted blade tooling using four match ground, brazed carbide blades offered the solution.
  • Delivered the desired productivity and consistent size and finish.
  • Because the family of parts has the same geometry, in different diameter parts, the same tool and blades can be adjusted to machine the entire family of parts.
Shoulder Joint
A shoulder joint was machined using special shaped trepanning blades in a Genesee hollow mill.

Dental Tool
Dental tool made of surgical stainless steel is machined to produce a 2° taper .925" long, and .218" long straight.
