Quality challenges for the manufacturers of medical implants

CHIRON FZ08 MT

Machining centres for the medical technology

Every year, more than 400,000 artificial knee or hip joints (endoprostheses) are implanted in Germany. The tendency is rising – a growing business. In a worldwide comparison, this figure far exceeds the average, but other countries are also experiencing rising numbers.
