Advance Grinding Services Medical Steel

The very nature of medical grade stainless steel is for medical uses, so the metal in question should be able to meet the extremely stringent design and fabrication criteria.

 Its overall design and fabrication process poses some of the most challenging engineering problems and material science questions as broad applications of medical grade round bar come in a diverse range of shapes and sizes that are then manufactured into medical devices that you see today, in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. 

Medical stainless steel is a low-cost metal that has good performance and mechanical properties. Not only is the price low but it is rather easy to process and can be made into various prostheses of different shapes in order to meet your needs in the medical industry. This metal can be divided into four categories:


Martensitic stainless steel- this category isn’t as resistant to corrosion as the other but it does have a high hardness and strength compared to most surgical instruments. Ferritic stainless steel- Due to its performance limitations it is only seen being used in medicine.

Precipitation hardening steel- Its mechanical properties are very good and its corrosion resistance is almost equivalent to that of cobalt-based alloys. 

Medical steel has good biocompatibility mechanical properties body fluid corrosion resistance, forming properties, and excellent processing all while remaining low cost. When doing implants it’s best to use steel with corrosion resistance such as austenitic stainless steel to reduce the elution of harmful metal ions, prevent premature failure of implanted devices, and ensure the safety of its clinical application as an implanted device.Medical grade stainless steel is part of the austenitic stainless steel family, in a category that is known for its exceptional corrosion resistance and high formability. The applications of medical stainless steel include the following: 

  • Precision stainless steel tubing
  • Chemical Containers or hazardous waste containers
  • Bone fixation
  • Wire forms and wire coils 
  • Curettes
  • Mandrels
  • Medical needles
  • Screws
  • Prostheses
  • Plates
  • Sensor Probes
  • Catheters
  • Otolaryngology ear scope nozzles
  • Knives and trays
  • Sink bowls and other surfaces
  • Chemical processing and storage equipment
  • Artificial heart valves
  • Orthopedic implants
  • Pharmaceutical equipment
  • Medical grade surgical instruments
  • And other medical devices

Stainless steels that are used for medical applications are namely 304 and 316 stainless steel both of which contain high levels of nickel which provide additional chemical properties making them suitable for extreme demands within the medical industry. Grade 304 stainless steel is resistant to oxidation making it extremely easy to clean and keep sterilized while316 contains chromium and nickel that offer increased chemical resistance; The steel grade also contains molybdenum which helps bolster its resistance towards corrosion.
