Company offers the manufacturing of custom nitinol and zirconium components to its list of fabrication capabilities. Both medical-friendly metals are imperative to the medical market because of their superior strength and biocompatibility characteristics. In addition to etching titanium (another bio-compatible metal frequently used in the medical device market), other materials that are significant to the medical industry the company utilizes include stainless steels such as alloy 316L and specific stainless steels designed for implants. In some cases, the specialty stainless steels are not as corrosive resistant as zirconium and titanium, so a variety of available metals such as nitinol and zirconium offers design flexibility to medical device engineers.
