The demand has never been greater for specialized supply chains that deliver medical materials to meet the production demands of OEM’s. These businesses are acutely aware of the need to use quality metals and materials in their products to assure performance, durability and long-term reliability. Due to the recent revisions to ASTM standards F136 and F138, Banner Medical has installed a multi-axis, computer controlled Ultrasonic Inspection System designed and built by Matec Inspection Companies, Inc., for precision ground bars.
ASTM F136 and ASTM F138 are commonly specified standards in the design of titanium and stainless steel surgical implants; and recent revisions to each standard call for ultrasonic testing at final diameter for all centerless ground, or peeled and polished bars, which are greater than or equal to .375” in diameter.
