Medical technology places the highest quality demands, not only on the end product, but also on the production processes.

Tyrolit provides you with highest performance tools and process consultants with which you can safely put your certified or validated machining processes into practise. As a global system provider, our solution portfolio includes cutting and grinding tools as well as finishing tools for machining artificial knee joints, hip joints, implants, hypodermic needles, surgical instruments such as scissors and scalpels, and dental products.

Our high-performance tools enable you to achieve reproducible, consistent quality in high-precision machining of a wide range of materials such as titanium, nitinol, cobalt-chromium and stainless steel alloys or ceramics.

4:30 min

Machining time

The machining time for profile grinding a knee implant with a GENIS-2 grinding wheel from Tyrolit is 4:30 minutes.


Surface finish

Artificial hip joint implants require a surface finish of Ra <0.005µm. This is generated with pre-polishing sleeves from Tyrolit.

0.23 mm


Hypodermic needles for insulin pens have a diameter of 0.23 mm. The tip is grinded burr-free with our grinding wheels.
