Engineering Matters: Exploring the Role of Precision Parts

In today’s highly dynamic medical world, precision machining plays a critical role in the field of medical device manufacturing. As one of the leading medical precision parts and fastener suppliers, B&G Manufacturing understands that the application of complex precision components in medical equipment is indispensable.  

For this reason, we implement meticulous engineering processes and manufacturing procedures to ensure the parts meet industry demands for quality, safety, and efficacy. Herein, we look at the critical role of precision parts in medical devices. 

The Value Proposition for Medical Precision Parts

There are numerous medical instruments and devices that utilize precision-machined components. The most common include orthopedic implants, surgical instruments, diagnostic equipment, respiratory and cardiovascular equipment, and medical probes. B&G Manufacturing supplies a wide range of precision components, fasteners, and offers contract manufacturing services to medical device OEMs worldwide.   

Our critical fasteners include screws, nails, connectors, crosslinks, hooks, taps, and drills. Other components for orthopedic use include cages, plates, and rods. Each of these products is vital for the functionality and safety of life-saving medical devices.  

When it comes to the production of medical devices for patients, the medical industry demands stringent standards. CNC machined and precision parts are preferred manufacturing methods since they result in high quality and reliable products with complex geometries and tight tolerances.  Medical professionals depend on our precision parts to create devices that meet the safety standards that regulatory bodies set. 

In the world of surgical implants, for instance, fasteners take center stage as they help ensure the success and longevity of the implants. These implants, ranging from internal fracture fixation to joint replacements, require a level of exactness beyond the typical engineering standards. The fasteners used must provide secure connections and minimize impact on the surrounding tissues.  

Different types of orthopedic applications require specific types of safety fasteners. For instance, distinct surgical screws are utilized to treat different types of body fractures, including cortical, cannulated, and cancellous. As screw manufacturers, we supply a variety of products that undergo complex and precise procedures and quality control to ensure they are safe and effective for their intended application in medical devices. 

Medical precision parts should not only be mechanically reliable, they must also be biocompatible. Using suitable materials, such as titanium, ensures medical devices will not affect a patient’s body negatively when in direct contact. Precision machining also helps manufacture components that require resistance to corrosion, such as artificial joints, surgical tools, and implantable devices.  

As fastener manufacturers, we employ material innovations and proper selection to achieve this delicate balance. We utilize titanium, stainless steel, and cobalt-chrome for their strength, biocompatibility, and corrosion resistance. Precision machining allows us to use these materials to manufacture intricate, detailed, and medical-grade components for healthcare applications.  

Benefits of Precision Components in Medical Devices

One of the key benefits of precision-machined components is extreme accuracy. We utilize techniques and processes including EDM, 5 Axis milling, metallurgical testing, ultrasonic cleaning, and more to produce parts with intricate geometries, tight tolerances, and minimal errors/defects to meet the strict demands of the medical industry.  

As such, our products enable medical equipment to have smaller footprints while retaining their full functionality. Medical precision parts are also renowned for reliability, high quality, and consistency. All these aspects ensure the products are effective and safe for patients.  

Precision machining allows us to use a variety of biocompatible materials to produce safe medical components. In fact, advancements in precision machining technologies make the use of metals such as titanium for implants possible.  

The components are also able to withstand sterilization, even with harsh chemicals. Finally, precision components enable the production of medical devices to adhere to high safety standards and remain compliant with the strict regulations of the medical industry. 


Overall, the importance of precision parts for the safe and effective function of medical devices cannot be overstated. Through meticulous design, manufacturing, and quality control processes, these components meet the strict standards required in the healthcare industry.  

As a trusted and respected fastener manufacturer and precision parts supplier, B&G Manufacturing aims to provide medical practitioners and patients with effective, safe, and dependable medical utilities. We have implemented a vertically integrated production process that leverages cutting-edge techniques and machinery and a team of dedicated experts to deliver best-in-class products for critical applications in the medical industry.
