Finite element analysis can be a useful tool for assessing the clinical performance of a new product in addition to developing and evaluating its design. The benefits and limitations of using this technique for orthopaedic products are examined here.
Industrial parts cleaning specialist Dürr Ecoclean GmbH (Filderstadt, Germany; www.durr.com
) has expanded its range of services in the field of precision cleaning of machined orthopaedic implants and other medical applications. Through its cooperation with the Swiss firm, UCM AG (Rheineck, Switzerland; www.ucm-ag.com
), a specialist in precision cleaning equipment, Dürr Ecoclean opens up the market segment for industrial precision cleaning in the micrometer range. The cooperation includes Dürr Ecoclean’s acquisition of worldwide sales and service for UCM equipment, allowing it to offer custom systems for an array of industrial cleaning tasks.
Specialising in the manufacture of machines for primary and fine cleaning of workpieces and components, Dürr now offers industrial precision cleaning that can be smoothly integrated into the overall process before or after manufacture. According to the company, the new services especially will benefit medical device manufacturing, precision engineering and other industries where precision cleaning is critical.
