  • Pebax
  • Silicone (Additives, Radiopaque, Laser Marking, Color)

Metal cutting tube

  • Stainless Steel
  • Nitinol
  • Platinum
  • Titanium
  • Cobalt Chromium
  • MP35N

Metal Welding

  • Stainless Steel
  • Platinum
  • Silver
  • Copper
  • Nickle and Alloys
  • Titanium
  • Nitinol

When choosing materials, you want to ensure your product is cost effective, ships properly and maintains all safety standards for the health of future patients. It is important to know the difference in clarity, weight, durability, chemical resistance and sterilization stability in all of your materials as they may vary. Knowing the features of these materials can help to simplify any project and those features can be matched to the role and performance of your intended device. Using our proprietary design software, laser cut hypotubes can be programmed to cut a variable pattern meeting your design specifications reducing the number of prototypes and shortening project timelines.
