Manufacture

Every year around 193,000 hip stems, 145,000 hip cups and 195,000 ball heads are manufactured for the world market at Zimmer‘s Winterthur site (Switzerland). Added to this are products for the knee and shoulder joints, spinal implants and implants for trauma care.

Zimmer employs state-of-the art machine technologies for its product manufacturing processes. Nevertheless, about one-third of all work steps for manufacturing a Zimmer product is manual work.
