Serving To The Growth In - Orthopedic Device Market:

The orthopedic device market is growing in complexity and even more in innovations. If we look at the numbers, the global orthopedic devices market size, valued at roughly USD 50 billion in 2021 — is now expected to expand at an annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 5% between 2022 and 2027.


The major factors bringing growth in the orthopedic device market are: rising prevalence of osteoporosis and musculoskeletal diseases; increasing incidence of sports and traumatic injuries; growing geriatric population; growing technological innovation in the field; and rising patient interest in minimally invasive orthopedic tools and surgeries. The same factors have also set the stage for constant innovation and advancement in orthopedic tools, implants, and devices.

AMETEK EMC your partner in manufacturing within the orthopedic marketplace:

AMETEK EMC has been a leading manufacturer in the Orthopedic Device Market for decades. With the regular technology improvements, we’ve adapted ourselves to the latest and improved capabilities. We don’t only help in manufacturing advanced engineered orthopedic tools but also help in improving existing medical devices in a wide variety of orthopedic projects.    

Most of the orthopedic engineering & manufacturing is done at our LASERAGE facility based in Waukegan, Illinois. Our manufacturing and engineering capabilities include laser cutting, laser welding, surface finishing, electro-polishing, and micro-blasting.  We are involved with new orthopedic tools, implants, and devices as well as advancing the existing orthopedic devices.

Our Biomaterials:

We contribute manufacturing of orthopedic tools, implants, and devices with industry-approved and standardized biomaterials. Most of the orthopedic implants are made of titanium and titanium alloys.  Some are made of stainless steels.  Orthopedic tools are for the most part made of stainless steels and harder steel components.  We are also involved in working with non-metal implant materials such as PEEK, alumina, zirconia, and more.

These biomaterials are industry accepted and reliable. The metal, plastic, and ceramic biomaterial are used to provide accurate resistance, strength, and durability for the orthopedic devices to provide optimal treatment for patients.

Our Work In The Orthopedic Market:

At our LASERAGE facility, we manufacture custom customer specified orthopedic tools as well as orthopedic implants.  The major orthopedic OEMs are customers as well as the boutique smaller OEM that support small orthopedic markets.  Customers are always sensitive to anonymity so discretion requires we refrain from specific disclosures.

One of our offerings with orthopedic tools is to manufacture laser cut flexible shaft patterns that are super customized and specific to the project.  These allow our customer instruments to provide patient specific outcomes with orthopedic replacements and restorations.

We also manufacture tools for heavy fractures (used in the case of traumatic wrist/ankle fracture), components for fixation devices, titanium and stainless steel tubular components, etc.

From laser cut components (flexible hones & drills) to laser welding for hip replacement sockets tools, AMETEK/Laserage can provide your team with precision manufactured components and assemblies.

Laserage has been involved in the spine business for a long time. In addition to screws, and titanium implants, we engineer and laser cut plastic and titanium implants for disc replacement in multiple designs. We also work on manufacturing custom solutions for our clients specific to their project requirements. Equipped with a fleet of over 45 laser systems utilizing over 65 lasers, and driven by a team of 100+ committed employees, Laserage carries the ability to turn the most challenging project into reality.

Laserage/AMETEK can provide processing of your implantable medical device components from laser cutting to the finished component, including the intermediate steps like annealing, shape setting, micro-abrasive blasting, electropolishing, and more.

The orthopedic market is a very innovative market with an annual growth rate of over 5%.  The major factors increasing the number of joint replacement surgeries, joint reconstruction surgeries, and rising patient interest in minimally invasive orthopedic tools and surgeries raising the demand for constant innovation. AMETEK EMC, we utilize the latest in precision laser processing capabilities.  We bring multiple advantages to our clients including advanced engineering, the cumulative experience of over 30 years in the industry.  Precision cutting of tube and sheet as well as precision welding with lasers is the key to our capabilities.  And, with our technological and engineering expertise, we provide the best solutions to your orthopedic end-product needs.
