Medical Implants For Pediatric Orthopedics

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), more commonly known as brittle bone disease, is a genetic disorder that causes soft bones. Children with this condition have bones that break easily or don’t form normally and they usually experience multiple bone fractures during their lifetime. Recent advances in pediatric orthopedic implants are improving the quality of life for these children. The story of Ismael illustrates the challenges children born with OI face. He suffered his first broken bone when he was 13 months old…

40 Years of Precision Machining
Celebrating 40 Years of Machining Excellence

Back in 1979 gas was 88 cents a gallon, a newspaper would set you back two dimes, and you could buy a 1971 used Ford Pinto for $750. Also in 1979, Swiss Precision Machining, LLC was founded by Mike Haupers with two machines and two employees. Mike had grown up in the business. His father was a dental instrument maker who had “magic hands” and ran a machine shop out of their basement. When Mike started SPM, he had been…
