most reliable forgings.
SMB has an established history of producing orthopedic
implants in all standard materials. To date, SMB has delivered over 100
different types of hip implant, from precision forged articles requiring
minimal machining, to parts with overall material allowance to enable for the
machining of several sizes from one forging. SMB also offers a collection of
standard hips that are available for immediate production to meet your critical
Over the last 20 Years SMB has forged over 1,000,000 hip
By utilizing isothermal forging techniques, SMB can produce
net shape hips that would otherwise be impossible to achieve. The resulting
hips require little or no finishing, and offer substantial savings in time and
money. SMB's hip replacements undergo stringent quality controls to ensure they
are incredibly reliable, and show very homogeneous metallurgical properties.
SMB utilizes a specially designed hydraulic press for
superplastic forming. This allows for Net Shape configurations in Titanium and
Cobalt based alloys for components that require a large degree of deformation. SMB
conducts comprehensive metallurgical analyses of the knees produced in its
on-site, fully equipped metallurgical laboratory
