Many engineered polymers form the basis of medical devices and Schivo have experience with processing all common polymer variants.
- Additive Manufacturing
- Component Verification
We have extensive experience machining products from simple polymers such as Nylon right up to engineered polymers such as Delrin and PEEK.
Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
Schivo has in-house Additive Manufacturing (AM) capabilities in 11 polymers, from ASA to Ultem and use the Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) process which ensures excellent component quality in both physical characteristics and appearance. Additionally, we have partners that expand our polymer AM capabilities into Selective Laser Sintering, Polyjet and Stereolithography.
Precision Engineering is a core competency at Schivo since the company formed almost 50 years ago and we consistently expand our expertise in this area.
Schivo have developed their expertise in Polymers Solutions since the company formed almost 50 years ago.
In the medical device industry product, confidence is key and we have the full range of capabilities to verify our products, from dimensional inspection & verification to more specific requirements such as hardness testing and coating confirmation. Where a process cannot be measured, we develop innovative methods to validate the process on a product-specific basis.
