Custom Medical Device Machining

The medical technology industry (Medtech industry) designs and manufactures the devices found in doctor’s offices to treat, diagnose, examine and monitor patients. The World Health Organization estimates that there are approximately 2 million different types of medical devices that doctors use around the world.

As a proud participant in the custom medical devices industry, PFI keeps up with being certified and in compliance with the quality management system of ISO 9001-2015 + AS 9100D. Our dedication to maintaining these certifications proves our dedication to providing the highest quality products. Contact us today to learn how PFI Advanced Equipment Manufacturing meets the needs of the medical device manufacturing industry.

Sterile Medical Device Machining


Medical device manufacturing is often very complex because it requires a sterile environment to fabricate medical tools and the precision of CNC equipment.

Medtech clients often rely on an experienced medical equipment machining manufacturer such as PFI to identify if their medical devices require complex metal machining or an alternative such as medical plastics machining. Our goal is to make a reliable and functional medical product for your needs. Call us today to speak with our knowledgeable team about your next medical parts fabrication.


Medical professionals need their supplies to arrive clean and sterile so that they are suitable to be used in a medical setting. That is why PFI has implemented the PFI Clean Room. This room is a climate-controlled room that is constantly filtering out dust and other contaminants during the fabrication process.
The PFI Clean Room creates a sterile environment to build medical device components and fabricate Medtech industry parts. Our Clean Room is part of how we offer top-of-the-line products to medical professionals.

Plastics Used in Medical Device Machining

PFI uses a variety of materials to make medical devices, but we primarily create plastic components that are used to build larger medical devices. Medical professionals across the country use PFI’s medical device components. Our expertise allows us to fabricate high-quality plastic tools for the medical industry.
There are a number of different types of plastics used in manufacturing, and each one has different qualities, benefits, and needs when being used in the manufacturing process. At PFI, we have decades of experience in medical device machining using:

  • PCV (Polyvinyl chloride)
  • Polyethylene
  • ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)
  • Polypropylene plastics
  • and more


PFI employs a number of specialty equipment to manufacture medical devices. One of the ways that we are able to confidently produce devices to specification and ensure we are sending quality parts is the use of our FARO Quantum CMM arm, a leading piece of equipment that captures even the most precise 3D measurements for the most accurate readings.

As a medical device machining manufacturer, PFI requires a high level of precision machining to avoid imperfections on the surface of any object. Our equipment increases our ability to hold and check tight tolerances of stainless steel medical utensils. This attention to detail allows us to create products and components that will work flawlessly within the entire device, increasing the lifespan of many medical devices and preventing malfunctioning due to compromised components.

Precision Medical Machining


Plastic can be found in a number of medical devices and have many different uses. Depending how the product will be used, and how often it is used, will often dictate which material is best to use. Below is a list of common plastic medical device components:

Medical Devices for One-time or short-term use

  • Surgical gloves
  • Plastic syringes
  • Surgical instruments
  • Catheters
  • Plastic coverings on thermometers
  • Otoscopes
  • Tongue depressors

Medical Devices for Durable and long-term use

  • Imaging devices
    • X-ray machines
    • MRI machines
    • CAT-scan machines
  • Heart valves
  • Prosthetics
  • Coronary stents
  • Pacemakers

Plastics are frequently used to create medical devices that require flexibility, such as endoscopes, IV bags and tubing, and various surgical tools. If you want to inquire about your next custom medical machining project, contact PFI to learn more!
