The AccuFlo abrasive blaster provides surface treatment solutions for the manufacture of medical parts. It is used to roughen the smooth surface finish on the threaded portion of dental implants. Roughening this area of the implant increases the surface area for the tissue to take root, improving the bond. The ability to promote this tissue in-growth is a critical component to the implant’s success. Microblasting is also used to improve the surface finish of pacemaker cans. Using glass beads as an abrasive, Comco’s microblasting equipment quickly removes scratches and marks, leaving an attractive satin finish on the can.
