Choosing materials for medical devices
Aluminium solutions can help your medical devices and equipment hold tight tolerances and stand up to your rigorous cleaning and sterilization requirements.
We offer complete fabrication services and fully integrated operations in extrusion, painting, anodizing, fabrication, welding, assembly and technical services.
Only certain materials are suitable for the heavy demands made on medical equipment and devices. Aluminium is one of them. It is non-toxic, strong yet light, easily machined and recyclable. And it doesn’t rust, which is critical with items requiring frequent sterilization.

Coatings help make these items even more scratch and wear-resistant – and more attractive, too, which never hurts when it comes to speeding up patient healing.
