How Does Plastic CNC Machining Continue to Grow?

Strong demand for efficiency in complex medical products and rising demand for mass customization are expected to foster market growth in CNC machining. Many experts predict that the CNC machining industry will grow from $86.8 billion in 2022 to $140.8 by 2029, with a compound annual growth rate of over 7 percent during that period. CNC machining is typically the only method of production capable of satisfying standards for certain types of high-precision parts in medical device equipment with complex geometries.

At Roberson Machine Company, we can’t rely on those predictions to simply happen on their own. We have to keep growing, innovating, and partnering with the best customers in the medical and medical device industries. Our customers are what keep us moving. We strive for excellence in everything we do, in each relationship we have. We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to keep coming back.

How Plastic CNC Machining Has Transformed the Medical Industry

We have manufactured a variety of personal protective equipment, as well as medical device enclosures, to help our medical industry partners stay ahead of the demand curve. Examples include:

  • MRI Immobilization Tools
  • Due to the nature of how magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines work, the usage of plastics is critical to their operation. When a patient is placed in the machine they must remain as still as possible for accurate imaging. Braces are often used to hold the patient in place as comfortably and as still as possible, and, because an MRI uses magnets, plastics are often used for these braces. CNC machining enables the production of these braces to be both high quality and rigid, while also comfortable for the patient.

  • Face Shields
  • A face shield/medical visor is designed to shield the face from risks like debris, chemicals, and other potentially contagious materials. For full facial protection, the protective visors are practical, lightweight, and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Anti-fog visors enable maximum visibility while in use.

  • Sneeze Guards
  • Sneeze guards and other similar products are in high demand, particularly among industries that provide critical customer service and healthcare. Plastic face shields, sneeze guards, intubation boxes, and face masks used throughout the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to be in high demand at schools, medical practices, companies, and social services.

  • Medical Device Enclosures
  • These can come in a variety of sizes and shapes and are made of the appropriate plastic that meets form, fit, and function for the application. An example would be diabetic devices – insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems.

  • Micromachined Parts
  • These parts can include:

    • Stents
    • Clamps
    • Spacers
    • Catheters
    • Pacemaker parts
    • Drug delivery systems
    • Tubes

These are just some examples of the many medical items that are manufactured using plastic CNC machining. The high precision and accuracy of plastic CNC machining, combined with its cost-effectiveness and quick turnaround times, make it an ideal solution for the production of medical equipment and instruments.
