From prototype to mold manufacturing and to mass production, you will get the best solution. Especially in the manufacturing of difficult and high-precision electronic stamping parts, we have rich experience and engineer R & D team,which has been recognized as the best supplier of electronic precision components in China. With over 30 years of industry experience, we have the knowledge and skills to produce high quality stampings for customers in a wide range of industries, including medical metal stampings.

It is well known that in the medical and healthcare industry, in order to ensure the safety of medical staff and patients, all medical devices (including all integrated parts and components) must have a set of strict standards. Our extensive experience and state-of-the-art stamping equipment enable us to meet these standards to produce precision stamping components suitable for medical devices and instruments.

Below is an overview of the main considerations we keep in mind when performing metal stamping operations for our medical and healthcare customers, as well as some of the common equipment, materials and end products involved.

Major Considerations for Medical Metal Stamping Parts

As a precision metal stamping company with extensive experience in China, we are well aware that that the medical industry plays a vital role in the demand and development of smaller, more precise components. Therefore, we must plan carefully in advance during the design and manufacturing stages to ensure that the performance, reliability and durability of these components are not compromised. In order to improve the manufacturability of metal stamping parts for medical devices, we take some specific measures including:

Design Metal Prototypes

Rapid Prototyping plays an important role in the design, development and final decision of medical components. Because it allows designers to identify potential problems for improvement in advance by continuously testing different design options, and ultimately decide on the design that best meets the customer’s specifications. This solution does not require open mold production, which greatly reduces production costs.

Reduce the Need for Secondary Operations

In the product design stage, it is most important to consider how to reduce the operations required for production while ensuring product quality, so as to shorten the production cycle. By simplifying or adapting the design, the need for secondary operations such as machining can be reduced or eliminated, thereby reducing the time and labor required in the production process.

Equipment for Medical Metal Stamping

During stamping operations, industry professionals may use a variety of tools depending on part and production requirements. Some of the most widely used medical stamping are:

Soft Tools

Soft tools are tools made from pre-hardened steel or other similar materials which is used in low-volume manufacturing operations.

Hard tool

Hard tools are made of hardened steel and other similar materials to ensure they are durable enough to withstand use in high-volume manufacturing operations.

Progressive Die

A progressive die means a die that completes several stamping processes simultaneously at different positions of the die in one stroke of the press. The different stamping process of the same part completed by the metal stamping die is arranged in a certain order in the feeding direction of the die at certain step distance, and one or several stamping parts are obtained in one stroke of the press. This stamping method is ideal for mass production.

At Heju Precision Stamping Company, we can produce customized progressive molds with fast and stable production for any precision metal stamping project by utilizing our AutoCAD and/or SOLIDWORKS software (for design operations). For example, the maximum running speed of our progressive stamping dies can reach up to 1500SPM. The precision of mold plate is +/-0.002mm per min, and The inserts precision is +/-0.001mm per min.

Common Materials

In view of the stringent design and manufacturing requirements of the healthcare industry, medical metal stampings are typically made from one of below two materials:

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is widely used in medical components due to its high strength, corrosion resistance, chemical inertness (including cleaning compounds), biocompatibility, and durability. Such as implantable devices, surgical instruments and other medical equipment.


Similar to stainless steel, this material has excellent strength and corrosion resistance. Therefore, people often use this material in different medical components.

Typical Stamping Components for Medical Applications

Currently, some professionals tend to choose metal stamping to produce precision parts and assemblies for medical and healthcare devices. Such as:

Thermometer Probe Cover

Device case and enclosures

Oxygen Tank Assembly

Instrument Connectors, Couplings and Accessories

Pump components

Surgical instruments (eg, drills, forceps, retractors, etc.)
