Benefits of Cannulated vs. Solid Raw Material

About Webinar

The increasing time required in early product development and regulatory stages means shortening manufacturing time is one of the few areas of opportunity remaining for reducing the time to launch new products. Use of cannulated bar stock instead of solid raw material reduces manufacturing time and improves manufacturing efficiency. This webinar discusses the various options available for manufacturing cannulated instruments and implants and provides a case study on the savings.
