Nitinol shape setting is one of the most critical parts of nitinol product manufacturing for surgical devices. It is an important function in the manufacturing process, but one that is not widely available.
We are one of very few contract manufacturers offering nitinol shape setting in support of our specialized offering. Other suppliers avoid this key capability, because of the complexity of the raw material properties and required manufacturing processes.
Required manufacturing processes
- Nitinol tube and nitinol wire custom forming and shape setting
- “Superelastic” nitinol components and sub-assemblies
- “Shape memory” nitinol components and sub-assemblies
- Convection furnace and fluidized bath processing
