The Beutter company is a supplier of precision mechanical components. The focus is on individual parts and assemblies with high manufacturing requirements and a high degree of vertical integration, preferably made of materials that are difficult to machine. Medical technology is one of the central target industries, in addition to important customers from mechanical engineering, aerospace, measurement and sensor technology and defence technology.
With currently 150 employees, 20 of which are trainees, and a proportion of skilled workers of about 80 %, Beutter is already one of the somewhat larger supplier companies. This represents an advantage for the requirements of medical technology. Not only does it mean that the necessary resources and specialist personnel are available to implement regulatory requirements, but it also means that the necessary specialist contacts can be maintained with medical technology manufacturers. These are so important because some requirements for medical devices are difficult to document and the necessary understanding of issues between both partners requires sound communication.
Beutter has all machining processes (turning, milling, grinding, honing) for the production and processing of complex turned parts, milled parts and assemblies, their assembly as well as cleaning and packaging in the clean room. Both prototypes and small series up to medium series of several 1,000 units per batch can be manufactured. In addition to the use of machining centres, emphasis is also placed on manual or partially automated operations, for example for deburring, polishing, cleaning and packaging. Processes that cannot be carried out in-house are handled by qualified suppliers. The entire production process is accompanied by a quality control system that covers all metrological tasks during production and final inspection. Subcontractors are also integrated into this system.
In addition to the qualification according to ISO 13485:2016, which is technically necessary for medicine, Beutter is certified according to ISO 9001 and for aviation according to EN 9100. In addition, there are numerous company approvals.
Beutter manufactures for many areas of application in medical technology, but sees its focus in particular in the area of implants of risk classes IIb and III.
