We manufactured the Denis Browne type retractor blade shown here for use in surgical applications.
Featuring overall dimensions of 6.0” in length x 1.485” in width x 1.485” in height, we fabricated this component from .060” thick 304 stainless steel to withstand the rigors of repeated sterilization.
Production operations involved blanking, piercing, and forming to shape the part features, and then straightening to achieve zero-distortion flatness.
Vibratory deburring and sanding removed both tool marks and trace particulate to leave the workpiece with uniform, mark-free surfaces with no pits or crevices that could harbor dangerous microbes. Close dimensional inspection confirmed we met the ±.005” tolerance specification.
We completed 200 units in a four week timeframe. Our tightly monitored production and quality processes ensured the highest level of quality to promote an elevated level of patient safety.
