ANCA Americas in Wixom, Michigan, a manufacturer of CNC grinding machines, will exhibit for the first time at the annual meeting for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
The AAOS Annual Meeting, March 7-11 in Las Vegas, brings together orthopaedic surgeons from around the country to learn and explore the latest advancements and technologies for the industry. As a developer of grinding equipment to produce implants, bone rasps, femoral balls, bone drills and taps, the team at ANCA Inc. thought it was essential that their technology was on display.
“Our client base for the medical industry continues to grow, and there’s a reason for that. Our grinding machines offer flexibility in their design and software for the development of Orthopaedic medical components. For ANCA, it made sense that we be at this show to allow us the opportunity to communicate face-to-face with those in the market. We’re excited to be exhibiting and showcasing our latest technologies,” said Keith Grillot, sales manager at ANCA Inc.
Grillot said that ANCA has grinding solutions to improve the production of implants, bone rasps, femoral balls, bone drills, and more.
