Norman Noble to Open New Process Development Center in Naples, Florida

Norman Noble will open a new process development center in Naples, Florida. The new facility, dubbed 5-Axis Micro Milling and Turning Process Development Center South (PDC South), doubles the company's capacity for manufacturing orthopedic implant and device prototypes and represents a strategic geographic expansion.

Opening in April 2015, Norman Noble's PDC South facility will be outfitted with Swiss turning and 5-axis vertical milling machines with a primary focus on orthopaedic screw and plate manufacturing. The new facility will focus special, but not exclusive, attention on customers located in the Southern U.S. and on parts that can be manufactured entirely on a Swiss turning or 5-axis vertical milling machine without also requiring ancillary finishing such as wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM) or laser cutting.

In addition, the PDC South operation will house laser marking, finishing and inspection equipment as well as a programming office. Once process development for a part is completed at PDC South, Norman Noble will complete validation activities and mass manufacturing at its full-scale production facilities in Highland Heights, Ohio.
