As the industry grows, medical technology trade shows are fast becoming massive events attended by thousands of top global companies and tens of thousands of engineers specializing in all areas of medtech planning, prototyping, manufacturing, and commercialization. These events are great opportunities for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and 2nd tier suppliers to strengthen their supply chain by identifying companies that bring value and strategic advantage, and forming meaningful partnerships with them. Big trade shows also give attendees the chance to meet with experts in their respective fields and discuss engineering challenges and new product concepts. 2017 is set to be the biggest year for medtech yet, and will see numerous massive industry conferences around the world.

Precipart, a leading provider of custom mechanical components, implants and instruments as well as high precision gearbox solutions for powered surgical tools frequently participates in these large industry conferences where its gear gurus and mechanical components experts discuss various technologies for bringing a product from concept to reality.

With core competencies in manufacturing technologies, such as gear cutting, Swiss turning, CNC milling, injection molding, and a variety of rapid prototype manufacturing methods, Precipart leverages decades of experience to become an extension of your product development team, ensuring optimal performance of your product.

We understand the need for quick turn prototypes to ensure speed to market when launching a new product, and we recognize the importance of long-term agreements for stabilized pricing.
