The manufacture of Microsurgical blades is quite complex and highly skill oriented. The manufacturing involves tight automatic process controls in steps like heat treatment, tempering and ETO sterilization while skilled operators have to work under the microscope (just as the blades are used in surgery) for steps like grinding and quality inspection. The visual final inspection is done on 100% basis. The process step of grinding of edge and final polishing is manual and requires great skill on the part of the operators because of miniature size and complicated shapes of the blades.
