Heat Treatment

  • Extremely fine-grained structure
  • LowElast process to reduce stent springback

Finest Grain Size for Excellent Durability

Heat treatment is an important, often underestimated technology used to adjust the mechanical properties of medical components and ensure reliable results. Thanks to our many years of experience at MeKo, we are experts in the heat treatment of 316LVM, L605, Phynox, MP35N, NiTi, and many more.

  • Large selection of different furnaces: chamber furnaces, salt bath furnaces, vacuum furnaces
  • For 316L (316LVM), L605, Phynox, MP35N: annealing processes, grain refinement, and adjustment of material properties
  • Special LowElast heat treatment technology
  • Quality control
  • Tensile tests
  • Metallographic analysis of cross-sections

Our vacuum furnaces guarantee the finest grain size for annealed stainless steel implants with excellent elongation and lifespan. For cobalt-chrome alloys, the in-house process Low-Elast reduces the springback effect and the recoil behavior of expanding implants such as stents.
