EPTAM Precision Solutions, headquartered in Northfield, New Hampshire, USA, has acquired a new sintering furnace to support its move into Metal Injection Moulding and metal Binder Jetting technology.

EPTAM is a manufacturer of medical device components, implants, single-use medical disposables, biopharma and diagnostic devices, as well as other high-precision surgical device components. It has experience with polymer machining, precision metal machining, laser cutting/welding and Metal Injection Moulding, which the company states it targets to open later this year.

Commenting on the news, Mark Kemp, Chief Executive Officer of EPTAM Precision Solutions stated that this was an, ”exciting milestone for our MIS [minimally invasive surgery] and robotic-assisted surgery growth strategy.”

Robotic-assisted surgery offers surgeons enhanced precision and control in complex surgeries that may otherwise be considered incredibly challenging and/or impossible to perform. EPTAM supports this evolving industry with skilled precision machining of components and subassemblies, as well as product development for a wide range of surgical instruments and medical devices for industry-leading minimally invasive, orthopaedic and medical device companies.

EPTAM has made a number of acquisitions in recent years, expanding its offering to include EPTAM Precision Metals (formerly Relius Medical), EPTAM Precision Molding (formerly Micro Molding Inc. and MedConnection LLC), and EPTAM Precision Micro-Machining (formerly Mendell). The company has over 500 employees with operations in New Hampshire, Colorado, New Jersey, Minnesota, Connecticut, and Michigan.
