In a constantly developing world, safe and efficient medical care is vital. Many people survive life-threatening issues today because a medical device has been invented to diagnose, treat or repair their problem.
Get your medical device to healthcare professionals quickly and affordably with precision metal component fabrication solutions from Fotofab.
Etching of Medical-Grade Materials
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.
Our capabilities include:
- Photochemical etching
- Titanium etching
- Exotic metal etching
- Metal Tooling
- Metal forming/bending
- Metal finishing
- Wire electrical discharge machining
- Diffusion bonding
- Laser cutting
- Custom packaging
- Rapid prototyping
Photochemical Etching Medical Components
Filters, snares, surgical needle threaders and sensor elements are common medical components we fabricate. Others include components for monitoring devices, dental and orthodontic appliances, MRI systems and veterinary instruments. 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 also custom fabricate obsolete replacement parts or prototypes quickly and affordably with photochemical etching. This process uses low-cost tooling for prototyping and production, enabling trials to begin more quickly and products to reach the market faster.
At Fotofab, providing clients with quality products is our utmost priority. We purchase material from reputable suppliers, verify compliance upon arrival, confirm accuracy with precision testing and audit completed orders prior to shipment.
