Passivation & Cleaning

Automated and Validated.

Norman Noble has completed a variety of validations for implant grade materials that customers can leverage.

As an industry leader in the contract manufacturing of medical implants and devices, Norman Noble offers the most advanced technologies to customers, including fully automated and validated passivation and final cleaning processes.

Norman Noble’s cleaning validation documentation (Strategy, IQ, OQ and PQ) have been completed in a format that can be shared with customers and includes a matrix of small to large part sizes, shapes and geometric complexities produced from many medical implant material grades. This allows customers to review the validation process, documentation and test results in detail. Norman Noble’s customers can compare this information to their current or proposed cleanliness specifications. In many cases this gap analysis will show the Norman Noble cleaning validation process fully satisfies customer requirements for specification and regulatory compliance.

Norman Noble’s advanced systems improve productivity, product quality, product consistency, operational safety and reduction of environmental waste. For more information, download our Passivation & Cleaning white paper.
