Pioneer in Stent Manufacturing
In 1995 MeKo was the pioneer in stent manufacturing using lasers.
Today the company is one of the largest stent contract manufacturers worldwide and well known as a quality leader. We are ISO 13485 certified and FDA approved.
Thanks to unique production processes and our know-how we realize even the most challenging projects.
From Tube to Stent
Here at MeKo each stent starts as a tube. Various sizes and materials, such as NiTi, 316L (316LVM), L605, MP35N and Phynox are laser cut. More than 2,000 certified tube lots are available in our stock and guarantee a rapid prototyping.
Bioresorbable stents are manufactured from degradable metals like magnesium (like MeKo's RESOLOY®), iron and zinc and from polymers (like PLLA). We advise our customers in tube selection but also work on customer supplied material.
Laser Cutting with highest precision
Our special laser systems developed in-house enable high-precision manufacturing with burr-free cut edges. Tolerances of a few µm are not a problem. You have full flexibility for your stent design, almost without any restrictions in length and diameter.
Post Processing of Stents
The MeKo electropolishing guarantees an exceptionally smooth stent surface.
MeKo‘s heat treatment produces the world‘s smallest grain sizes (ASTM11 for 316L/316LVM) for higher corrosion resistance and smoother surfaces after the stent dilatation. LowElast optimizes the crimp-behavior of L605 stents.
Heat treatments of NiTi for shape setting and Af-temperature setting are our competence.
The MeKo passivation process ensures a higher biocompatibility. Our special process CoReSurf guarantees a perfect corrosion resistance of stents for better clinical outcomes.
The surface adhesion of drug coatings has been improved with surface modifications such as ModiSurf+.
All steps at MeKo are subject to the highest quality standards. The stents undergo various cleaning processes and verifications during manufacturing. At the final inspection all stents are inspected visually 100 % inside and outside. More than 100 manual microscopes and automated measuring systems are available.
On request the inspection is performed in clean rooms according to ISO 8 (Class 100,000).
Our MeKo-Lab provides a comprehensive laboratory for detailed tests and analysis of medical devices.
Research and Development
MeKo is dedicated to technological leadership for precision and quality to offer customers an added value for their products. All processes are optimized. The in-house research and development department develops new customer-oriented solutions for a positive long-term cooperation.
