Deburring PEEK Implants with Micro-Abrasive Blasting

Micro-abrasive blasting is an effective tool for the manufacture of PEEK implants.

Burbank, CA – Comco Inc.’s micro-abrasive blasting equipment can be used to deburr PEEK implants.  Though PEEK’s biocompatibility and chemical resistant nature make it an ideal choice for medical implants, it creates challenges to the manufacturing process.  Machining typically generates burrs that are cumbersome to remove manually.

 

Micro-abrasive blasting can be used to eliminate this laborious process.  The fine abrasive stream quickly strips off the burs without damaging the delicate features machined into the parts.  A soft abrasive, like sodium bicarbonate, has the cutting effectiveness required to deburr the parts without cutting or burning the surface.

 

Comco offers sample part testing to determine the most efficient microblasting method for any application.  Our engineers have the expertise and complete test facilities to determine if a micro-abrasive blasting process can be used to improve production efficiency and product quality.  Visit www.comcoinc.comfor more information.
