MeKo's Manufacturing Processes

Laser Cutting

Laser Cutting

Our laser machines enable cutting and drilling with a precision of up to ±2 µm.

  • Highest cutting quality with lowest heat impact to the material.
  • Nearly no limitations in cutting length and tube diameter.
  • Cutting stents in the expanded shape (thin wall tubing with large diameters).
  • Extremely precise measuring techniques.
  • Proprietary cleaning processes.
Shape Setting

Shape Setting

Most demanding geometries are realized with our advanced shape setting tools.

  • Accurately controlled heating cycles ensure reliable transformation temperature (Af) settings and precise shape settings.
  • Af temperature testing with differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), tensile and radial force resistance measurements.
  • Bend and free recovery (BFR) test is a non-destructive, computer-assisted way to accurately measure the active Af temperature of sensitive geometries.
Electropolishing

Electropolishing

Homogeneous and constant material removal through our optimized electropolishing processes.

  • Widely adjustable range of material removal.
  • No contact marks.
  • Round strut edges on the inner and the outer side of the device.
Passivation

Passivation

Surface passivation enhances biocompatibility. Results meet and exceed the corrosion resistance requirements of ASTM 2129.
Marker Crimping

Marker Crimping

Radiopaque markers enable X-ray visibility of the devices. We offer highly precise pressing and welding for materials like Ta, Au, Pt, Pt-Ir.
Superior Inspection

Superior Inspection

100 % visual inspection ensures perfect quality. We offer manual and automated dimensional and topography inspections with stereo and telecentric microscopes, scanning electron microscopes (SEM), CLSM etc.

NiTi - the ideal alloy for medical devices

Nickel titanium (NiTi - also known as Nitinol) is an ideal alloy for many medical components due to its superelasticity, shape memory, strength and corrosion resistance.
