You are in safe hands at Goss Springs
02 February 2017
“An important part of Goss’ capability is the design and supply of ultra-high precision components for the medical industry” says Dan Goss.
To underline the point Dan goes on to say that ”we have been supplying the medial industry for years and one application we are particularly proud of was the design and supply of components used in equipment for the treatment of cancer. Some components and springs we have made are so small that you have to use our VMM machine with 200x magnification to even see the component.”
Exacting material selection and precision manufacturing
In medical applications the manufacturing tolerances are extremely tight and have to be controlled exactly no less because of the physical size of the components involved but also the essential safety critical nature of the applications they are deployed in.
Sophisticated materials are often required such as platinum iridium used in the heating coil of cauterising equipment used in gynaecological equipment. The operational environment for many medial applications is of course extremely sensitive, involving as it does not only equipment used for the external treatment of conditions but also invasive procedures. So, for example, care has to be taken to select the appropriate materials to be able to withstand exposure to the acidic characteristics of human blood.
Material specific life cycle testing is just one part of the overall service offered to ensure that safety critical components get to the market to provide years of safe and reliable usage.
