Specialty Metals for Life-Changing Medical Devices at MD&M West 2022

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP) will exhibit its range of medical grade metal strip, foil, tubing and shaped wire products at MD&M West - the world’s largest Medical Design and Manufacturing show.

The event will take place from 12 to 14 April 2022 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. AMETEK SMP will be located at booth number 1854 for the three days of the exhibition.

Metal experts from AMETEK SMP will present a range of high-performance, highly specialized custom metal solutions for critical medical devices.

Thin Strip and Foil for Safer Medical Devices
Precision metal strip and foil manufactured by Hamilton Precision Metals is engineered to the tightest tolerances and thinnest gauges, down to 1.5 microns. Strip and foil are available in various medical-grade alloys, including titanium, stainless steel, nickel and specialty grades such as MP35N® LTi.

Applications include pacemaker and neurostimulator enclosures, cranial mesh, drug-infusion pumps, implantable electronic connectors, and stents.

Precision Tubes for Cardiac Applications
Precision medical tubing products from Fine Tubes and Superior Tube are custom-made in high quality stainless steel and titanium alloys. They are engineered for heart valves, stents, pacemakers, and Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM). The tubes offer excellent strength-to-weight ratios, biocompatibility and corrosion resistance.

Nickel Strip for 20% Higher Conductivity in Battery Tabs
High purity nickel strip for battery connectors in critical medical applications are engineered from AMETEK SMP Wallingford to deliver 15-20% higher conductivity than traditional cast materials. Shaped wire products from AMETEK SMP Wallingford are used in applications including orthodontic brackets, toothbrush staples, channel wires for superconductors in MRI scanners.

Matt Lappen, Commercial Director at AMETEK SMP says: “We are seeing extraordinary advances and innovations within the medical sector right now. AMETEK SMP is proud to support the evolution of higher performing and safer medical devices and to work with industry leaders attending MD&M West.”

MD&M West is an important annual event for MedTech engineers, business leaders and key decision-makers around the world. Over three busy days, delegates can benefit from a conference covering a wide range of key topics. In addition, an exhibition will be attended by leading MedTech and engineering companies; while the latest technology and innovations will be displayed and discussed.
