This knee replacement is one example of the orthopaedic parts that medical manufacturing companies may produce.Marlin Steel is headed to the 15th Annual Orthopaedic Manufacturing & Technology Exposition and Conference (OMTEC) in Rosemont, Illinois. What is OMTEC? Moreover, why should you meet with the Marlin Steel team there?

What is OMTEC?

OMTEC is a large-scale conference and expo aimed at addressing the concerns and needs of orthopaedic manufacturing companies. Some of the topics that will be covered in the OMTEC 2019 agenda include:

  • EU medical device regulations;
  • Antimicrobial coatings;
  • The future of digital health and wearables in orthopaedics;
  • Joint replacement procedures; and
  • The future of advanced materials in spinal surgeries.

The event gathers professionals from across the orthopaedic medical device manufacturing industry—as well as orthopaedic consultants, surgeons, and regulatory personnel.

Why Should You Attend OMTEC 2019?

The primary reason to attend OMTEC if you’re part of a medical equipment manufacturing company is that it’s a great chance to get some insight into trends throughout the industry—such as new regulations or medical manufacturing techniques.

For example, the Marlin Steel team will be there to discuss how to use custom wire baskets to maximize productivity and minimize waste for medical manufacturing processes. Another topic the Marlin team will discuss is the factors that go into creating the perfect orthopaedic parts manufacturing basket—such as whether to use a sanitary medical-grade coating or electropolished stainless steel for specific applications.

By using the right custom wire basket for medical parts manufacturing, you can reduce the waste caused by having to reprocess or remanufacture parts that get accidentally damaged during finishing processes. Additionally, you can minimize the total cost of ownership for custom baskets by getting ones engineered to last through years of use instead of wearing out in mere months.
