Precision, component machining

Taking new orthopaedic products to market can be a difficult and costly process. The medical industry is tightly regulated and controlled and, therefore, complex to access. Unfortunately many great concepts don’t get past the initial development stage.

The need for quality orthopaedic implant products has grown in recent years and the market is becoming increasingly competitive. With doctors, surgeons, consultants and patients demanding better and more robust treatments, there is now a huge demand for affordable implant innovation.

Professional machining

When developing a product for market, it makes sense to work with a professional machining partner that can provide hands-on help, advice and support, from initial planning and tooling through to materials handling and full-blown production and testing. This will ensure that your investment is secure and costs are controlled.

It takes industry experience, investment in cutting edge equipment and technical insight to produce precision manufactured, orthopaedic products that meet the necessary production, compliance and accreditation requirements set by governing bodies.

Turning concepts into reality

Orthoplastics is a respected, global leader in UHMWPE machining and manufacturing, with over 30 years’ industry experience. We excel in producing the highest grade UHMWPE (Orthopaedic Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) and work with all of our partners to turn innovative concepts into reality.

Experts in milling, turning, grinding and drilling

By choice, our general machining capabilities relate to plastics, both implant grade and instrument - our CNC machining centres and lathes can respond to any manufacturing requirement.

Alongside our CNC machines, we offer various surface treatments to meet and often exceed customer specifications.

Our component machining services are just part of the story. We provide full consultation, design and engineering and research/development support, as well as rigorous in-house laboratory testing to recognised quality standards.

Over the years our business has been instrumental in producing and testing many new and pioneering orthopaedic implant products that have had a profound effect on patients’ lives.
