Photochemical Etching of Medical Implantables
Fotofab specializes in photochemical etching of medical-grade materials, which include 300 series Stainless Steels, Nickel alloys and Titanium alloys. Photochemical etching is a precise process that allows for extremely tight tolerances and configurations not possible with traditional metal fabrication methods. A photographically prepared mask is applied to the work surface, protecting the underlying base metal, and tightly controlled chemistry removes metal atom by atom, resulting in parts exact to print.
With years of experience in fabricating precision metal components, Fotofab is a trusted medical implantable device industry supplier. Contacts, pins, terminals, connectors, springs and filters are common parts we provide. Others include precision etched metal components for stents and pacemakers. Completed parts can be packaged in clean-room conditions to reduce environmental contaminants.
Wear can cause components to degrade over time, negatively impacting long-term medical device performance. Fotofab can fabricate obsolete replacement parts or prototypes quickly and affordable. From your CAD file, we can often produce finished parts in one business day, without the typical expense of tooling.
The Fotofab team purchases material from reputable suppliers, verifies compliance upon arrival, confirms accuracy with precision testing and audits completed orders prior to shipment. From the moment an order is received, we are all accountable for the service and final product.
