Cadence (Staunton, Va.) recently finished the expansion of its PEEK machining and molding capabilities to keep up with the rise in use of implantable medical devices.
The company’s PEEK cell allows it to offer machined prototypes and low volume production parks for new designs and molded components for high volume production. The parts manufactured by Cadence are made using no cutting fluids which means they are machined dry to keep burrs to a minimum and reduce the risk of contaminants.
“We have been producing PEEK components for many years,” Ric Medeiros, engineering manager at Cadence’s Rhode Island facility, said. “The new PEEK cell further demonstrates our commitment to our customers by investing in technologies, and in this case, for the advancement of implantable medical devices.”
