Hip Stem

Machining hip stem components calls for high-quality cutting tools. DIAEDGE Cutting Tools’ solutions offer a variety of sharp ground positive insert geometries and variable curve radius-cutting for hard-to-cut materials – such as titanium (Ti) – which maximizes machining efficiencies and increases tool life, while maintaining the tight tolerances and high surface finish required for hip replacement components.
