Arthroscopic Shavers: A Case History in Manufacturing Technology


Traditionally, the manufacture of arthroscopic shavers required multiple steps of various methods to grind one shaver at a time. Glebar Company has revolutionized that method to provide a more streamlined process with a faster cycle time, drastically improving customer output.

Glebar is known for its standard platform of modular machine systems, which can be configured to provide custom solutions for its customers, across a wide breadth of industries. Recently, a medical device manufacturer was looking to improve its production of arthroscopic shavers. Its existing process required various manufacturing steps, meaning multiple machine setups, resulting in unwanted downtime. This process could not meet its specific goals, so the company turned to Glebar for assistance.
