Medical industry custom titanium screw application analysis
Titanium is a metallic element, which is characterized by light weight, high strength and good corrosion resistance. Due to its stable chemical properties, good high temperature resistance, low temperature resistance, strong acid resistance, strong alkali resistance, as well as high strength, low density, known as the "space metal". The two major advantages of titanium Z are high specific strength and strong corrosion resistance, which determines that titanium must have broad application prospects in aerospace, weapons and equipment, energy, chemical industry, metallurgy, construction and transportation. This is the difference between it and other materials, non-toxic, harmless, environmentally friendly, which is not other materials, so the price of titanium screws is much higher than other materials, a few cents or even to a few dollars of titanium screws have.
Titanium is widely used in the manufacture of medical devices, artificial hip joints, knee joints, shoulder joints, hypochetes, cranium, active heart valves, bone fixation clips.
Before the use of titanium, medical orthopedics usually use stainless steel as a bone material, but the use of stainless steel has a disadvantage, that is, rust, which has to be taken out of the stainless steel sheet after the bone is healed, but this is a very painful thing for patients. After the use of titanium "artificial bones", the orthopaedic technology has been completely changed, and the stainless steel sheet has been abandoned. Just use titanium sheets and screws where the bones are damaged, and after a few months, the bones will regrow in the holes and screws of the titanium sheets, and new muscle fibers will be wrapped in the titanium sheets, and the titanium bones will be connected to the flesh like real bones, playing a supporting and strengthening role.
At present, the patella claw commonly used in the orthopedics department of the hospital is made of titanium metal, in the refrigerator at low temperature, it can be bent into any shape, the claw is broken during the operation, placed on the patient's broken patella, the temperature of the patella claw will rise, it will tightly grasp the patella, into a pre-set shape.
Titanium screws are classified into round head screws, self-tapping screws, hexagonal screws, countersunk screws, and so on.

The custom price of titanium screw manufacturers will naturally change due to the level of titanium metal raw materials. Therefore, when customizing titanium screws, you can choose the appropriate screw material according to your actual situation and the use environment of the screws.
