Quality is at the very core of Micropulse and it is the foundation of every product manufactured. It’s embedded into every step of the process because at Micropulse, things are done right—the first time. A focused and specialized quality plan is determined before a project is initiated to ensure the end result is an instrument, implant, case and tray, or packaged product that customers can trust with certainty. 

Micropulse has developed and maintains a Quality Management System in accordance with ISO 13485 and 21 CFR Part 820 requirements: 

  • Every machining step involves first piece inspection by a member of the quality team. 
  • Operators conduct in-process inspection at a designated and designed frequency; data is electronically input to flag fluctuations in parameters alerting the quality team of trends that can be controlled to avoid escalation to problems. 
  • Real-time electronic data plotting and analysis allows for easy access to information, predictability, identification of potential defects, and historical review of details as needed in the future for product investigations. 
  • Quality control lab sampling inspection is conducted before the product ships to the customer.

Our reputation depends on your reputation and we’re committed to your success. At Micropulse, challenges are identified, communicated to customers, and new solutions implemented before issues escalate to problems because we know that on-time delivery is critical and quality cannot be compromised.


At Micropulse we build relationships with customers that stand the test of time because we care and we deliver on our promise. Micropulse was founded in 1988 by Brian Emerick near Columbia City, Indiana. As a new business, Micropulse earned partnerships with leading orthopedic companies built on trust, honesty, and open communication. Today, Micropulse remains privately held under Brian’s leadership with the same imperative values. Customers know they can trust Micropulse to be responsible, accountable, and committed. That is a reputation Micropulse has worked hard to earn and works everyday to retain.


The orthopedic market is facing increased pressure to deliver medical devices that improve the quality of life for an expanding, segmented, patient population while managing the cost pressures of an evolving reimbursement landscape. Orthopedic OEMs need a full-service partner that provides a personalized approach to each and every project. Micropulse does exactly that. We review each project and create a customized plan for manufacturability. By employing a manufacturing cell technique that unifies engineering, manufacturing, and quality, we ensure real-time troubleshooting and on-time delivery.
