Wire Technology

OUR BRAIDING CAPABILITIES ALLOW YOU TO CREATE UNIQUE, COMPLEX, VARIED STRUCTURES.

WIRE TECHNOLOGY.

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.

Wire braiding

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.

Wire forming

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.
