“Customizing medical devices is as important today as being at the vanguard of wire technology,” Kleinschmit continues. “Our team excels in both areas as visitors to our Compamed booth (8A.S29) will discover. Our customizable options range from stripped wire, multi-cabling and coiling to EXERA™ high tolerance coatings, as well as more than 150 different alloys and custom melts.”

EXERA™ medical wire from Sandvik is made-to-order at the company’s production facility located in Palm Coast, Florida, USA, for a range of applications in neurology, cardiology and other areas. EXERA™ wire has achieved notable success in medical devices used for controlling disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Dystonia.

In addition to co-designing and developing fine medical wire under cleanroom conditions, Sandvik offers OEM’s globally the ability to combine wire concepts in value-added components.

Gary Davies, Head of BU Medical, Sandvik adds:

“When you get down to wire diameters of 0.1 mm, you reach the point where medical wire development becomes part art and part science. We are now expanding our capabilities with craftsmen who have a core understanding of needs and agility in the design process.

“As a strong design partner, our team can help device manufacturers aim for top quality products related to everything from glucose and temperature monitoring and FFR implants to next generation pacemakers.”
