medicalWe offer the most innovative cleaning technology and advanced support resources in the medical industry, with a variety of machine configurations from which to choose, acute market knowledge and extensive applications expertise. Our ability to adapt to your specific cleaning needs is unparalleled.  If one of our standard systems won’t completely fit your needs, we work with you to engineer a custom design that will be the very best option to maximize your cleaning efficiency.   Whether you are cleaning orthopedic devices, surgical instruments such as scalpel blades and needles, we have what you need to optimize your manufacturing operations, by cleaning tight-tolerance parts while achieving increased productivity.  Ultrasonic cleaning is dynamic enough to remove tough contaminants, in both hard-to-reach inner channels and heavily soiled external surfaces.  Since there are no harsh chemicals used, it is safe for the most delicate objects which are easily damaged by other cleaning methods.

By working closely with medical customers, Magnus is able to identify challenges and develop a broad range of cleaning machines that revolutionize the processing of medical components, including:

  • Compact, high-speed machines that accurately cut small, complex parts from tough materials.
  • Multi-Tasking and 5-axis machines that accelerate time to market at the lowest possible cost.
  • High-speed, high-performance spindles that produce superior surface finishes.
  • Machines that exceed the industry’s growing demand for lean manufacturing and precision.
  • Advanced Solutions for prototyping up to high-volume production.
  • Manufacturing equipment that provides high levels of throughput and consistent quality.
  • Advanced CNC machine controls for faster 5-axis machining and superior part surface finishes.
  • Easy bar feeder or gantry loader integration for unattended machining operations.

Magnus Engineered Equipment manufactures equipment which utilizes 360-degree radial ultrasonics for cleaning medical and surgical needles. Prior to cutting into needles, continuous wire is cleaned with Magnus manufactured radial ultrasonic units at speeds up to 500 feet per minute.  The radial ultrasonic units clean the wire to the highest extent by producing 360-degree cavitation on the wire surfaces in the cleaning solution.  Equipment can be designed to handle single or multiple wires and it’s compact form makes it readily adaptable to existing manufacturing operations.
