OUR BRAIDING CAPABILITIES ALLOW YOU TO CREATE UNIQUE, COMPLEX, VARIED STRUCTURES.
Our comprehensive selection of wire technologies helps our customers meet the widest array of medical applications. Capabilities include wire processing, forming, braiding and winding, as well as surface treatments that enhance biocompatibility and durability.
As medical science advances, we support our customers who are creating the next-generation of implantable stents, filters and other devices. We work with you closely to achieve the best possible results, whether that requires conventional technology, any of our many patented and proprietary approaches, or something entirely new. We offer a broad array of wire technology capabilities.
Interweaving or twining wire for conventional, flexible, closed-loop and single-wire braiding Wire winding Fully automated, tension controlled process produces high-quality and uniform dimensions, characteristics and surface finish in three dimensional structures.
Two- and three-dimensional shapes and unique structures in a wide range of wire diameters and types. When you work with us, you gain access to the extensive capabilities and in-depth knowledge earned across our more than 20 years of design-for-manufacturing experience. Equally important, you gain an ally you can depend on for support and guidance at every turn.
TWO SITES, ONE PHILOSOPHY – IDEAS, EXPERTISE AND PASSION.
As a customer-centered company, we view ourselves as an extension of your team. That means we keep your best interests in mind at every turn so that we − and you − feel confident that every project we undertake together achieves optimal success.
The collaborative spirit of our in-house engineers, scientists, materials experts and quality staff plays a vital role in every project. Working with you closely allows us to align your product timelines and clinical milestones to the necessary process design controls. We also keep our eyes on manufacturability to ensure that each component is engineered for quality, reliability and cost-effective manufacturing.
