6 Ways to Improve Medical Grinding-Polishing

Automation is enabling both improved sample quality and throughput for quality critical manufacturing. The automation trend is aiding multiple industries. Often in highly regulated industries, such as in medical, automation need to meet or exceed the quality of production or testing while also increasing output to be commercially viable. Medical grinding and polishing can take …

What’s the Difference Between Grinding Materials?

What’s the Difference Between Grinding Materials?

Materials have different properties, meaning each has its own quirks when processing. Both in precision applications and well-regulated industries such as in medical, understanding these behaviors becomes a matter of life or death. Here are several of the typical kinds of materials used for medical products and how they are prepared using high-volume grinding-polishing systems. …

Error and Uncertainty in Metallographic Measurement

Introduction The idea of using ‘uncertainty’ has been slow to be adopted in many industries – this is perhaps understandable given the length of explanation required to cover all aspects of the general guide (134 pages in the GUM published by the Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology). However, the reason for its introduction is …
