The Tuttlingen area is a centre for medical equipment specialists of all sizes and fields. At Günter Stoffel Medizintechnik GmbH in Wurmlingen, Germany, high-precision CNC processing and traditional craftsmanship are at the heart of the company’s success. Productivity is ensured by probes, laser measuring systems and tool setting probes from Blum-Novotest, which play an essential role in the unmanned production of extremely small components.
“All Stoffel instruments have ultra-high level of precision in common. Whether it’s the tiny spoons of biopsy forceps, whose edges must connect to within one-hundredth of a millimetre to be able to cut with precision, or tweezers with the tiniest of teeth at their tip – our job is to manufacture products with the accuracy necessary to ensure that the multi-part instruments can be assembled and function properly,” comments Dieter Stoffel, Managing Director. “With the exception of electropolishing, all production steps are performed in-house.” Parts produced on advanced CNC centres are deburred, adapted, polished and installed by hand.
