In the medical device industry, projects often involve low volumes and extremely high requirements in terms of functionality and visual appearance. Many aluminum die casting suppliers are hesitant to undertake such projects. However, at FUERD, we have dedicated years of practice and hard work to develop a mature system for manufacturing medical die-casting parts.

Our dedicated team can contribute to your business success through the following:

  • We assist in improving product yield and enabling smooth mass production through DFM (Design for Manufacturing) and PFMEA (Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) evaluations.
  • With over 10 years of experience in medical die casting manufacturing, we have earned the trust of valued customers such as Mindray and Analogic.
  • We offer a comprehensive one-stop solution, including prototyping, tooling, die casting, precision machining, and surface finishing.
  • Our expertise lies in high-precision die casting and machining parts manufacturing, achieving accuracies up to 0.005mm.
  • We continuously invest in high-tolerance equipment based on order requests and quality requirements.
  • We provide a wide range of exceptionally high-quality casting services for medical device parts and other equipment.

Using aluminum in medical casting is preferred due to its cost-saving benefits, increased production capacity, and fast return on investment. Medical casting parts developed by our industry exhibit superior strength, optimal rigidity, and lightweight properties.

What are the applications of aluminum die-casting in medical parts?

Aluminum die-casting finds various applications in the medical industry, where lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and durable components are essential. While the use of aluminum in medical devices is not as prevalent as other materials like stainless steel or plastics, it still offers certain advantages in specific applications. Here are some of the common applications of aluminum die-casting in medical parts:
  1. Medical Equipment Housings: Aluminum die-casting is used to produce outer casings and housings for medical equipment like imaging devices, ultrasound machines, and monitoring equipment. The lightweight yet robust nature of die-cast aluminum ensures the protection of sensitive internal components while being easy to handle.

  2. Surgical Instruments: Certain surgical instruments, particularly those requiring lightweight and corrosion-resistant properties, can be made using aluminum die-casting. Examples include retractors, clamps, and various handheld instruments.

  3. Medical Carts and Trolleys: Aluminum die-casting is employed to create components for medical carts, trolleys, and portable equipment, as it provides a balance between strength, weight, and durability for ease of mobility.

  4. X-ray and CT Scanner Components: Die-cast aluminum is used to manufacture components for X-ray and CT scanners, such as gantry parts and supporting structures, due to its ability to maintain precise dimensions and tolerances.

  5. Dental Equipment: Some dental instruments and equipment, including handpieces and dental tool components, can be made using aluminum die-casting to achieve lightweight yet durable solutions.

  6. Patient Handling Devices: Aluminum die-casting is used in the production of patient handling equipment, such as lightweight parts for stretchers, wheelchairs, and adjustable beds.

  7. Respiratory and Breathing Devices: Components of respiratory devices like oxygen concentrators and nebulizers can be made using aluminum die-casting for their lightweight and corrosion-resistant properties.

  8. Mounting Brackets and Supports: Aluminum die-casting is utilized to create brackets and supports for medical equipment, allowing for secure and reliable installations.

  9. Diagnostic Device Components: Certain diagnostic devices, such as blood pressure monitors and glucose meters, may incorporate aluminum die-cast parts for their lightweight and precise design.

  10. Implantation Tools: Some implantation tools and surgical guides may incorporate aluminum die-cast components, especially when lightweight and non-magnetic properties are required.

It is important to note that while aluminum die-casting has advantages for certain medical applications, medical device manufacturers must consider material biocompatibility, sterilization requirements, and specific performance criteria before choosing aluminum or any other material for medical components. Additionally, strict regulatory standards and testing must be adhered to when using materials in medical devices to ensure patient safety and compliance with medical industry regulations.
