Surgical Blade Prototyping

Cutting Edge Prototyping with B.A.P.

Unlike most blade manufacturers who require you to choose from a catalogue of standard blade shapes, our niche is actually the opposite. We encourage you to disregard limitations on blade dimension, materials and minimum quantitities that you may encounter with other blade manufacturers and dream outside the box. Prototyping is where it all begins.

Prototyping allows us to tap into our extensive experience and deliver consistently high quality, competitively priced, made-to-order blades within short lead times.

Medical device blades and edges require a high level of quality and precision sharpness; poor, unsharp blades and edges can generate a series of several negative effects, which, like many applications cannot tolerate. Medical applications can include arthroscopic, orthopedic, laparoscopic/endoscopic, diagnostic, ophthalmic, plastic, and other surgical procedures.

We have the process of achieving results fast - through technology, our facility capabilities, and Team Power to implement rapid prototyping! You will discover we can, when needed, deliver quotes within hours and finished prototype product solutions within days to help you get to market faster.

Blade or Edge Prototyping Process

If you do not already have a blade or edge design, but simply an idea...we will work closely with you or your team to design a blade or blades to meet your unique set of cutting requirements. Our knowledgeable B.A.P. team will assist you throughout the design process, even if you have a edge design in mind, with the selection of available blade materials and cutting edge configurations optimized for your blade or edge application.

Once the blade specifics are decided we will then manufacture your prototype blade quickly, often in a matter of days or weeks. We can quickly vary the blade shape, material or edge geometries before going into final production.
