Sandvik, the leading medical wire specialist, is stepping up focus on customizable wire solutions for sensing and stimulation based on EXERA™ high precision medical wire at CMEF, National Convention & Exhibition Center, Shanghai, China 14-17 May 2019.

The China International Medicinal Equipment Fair (CMEF) was launched in 1979 and after 40 years of self-improvement and continuous development, the CMEF has now become one of the world’s leading global integrated service platforms in the value chain of medical devices. Some 200,000 visitors and 7000 exhibitors from 30 countries are expected to participate at this year’s CMEF trade fair in Shanghai. Among the innovators is Sandvik which will give attendees the possibility to explore new applications for customized and co-developed EXERA™ high precision medical wire.

“Medical devices are becoming more intelligent and tailor-made to unique applications. We offer customers the opportunity to co-design innovative products that meet fast-changing expectations on stimulation, connectivity and safety,” says Liddon Dell, Application Specialist, BU Medical, Sandvik.

“Customizing medical devices is as important today as being at the vanguard of wire technology,” Dell continues. “Our team excels in both areas as visitors to our CMEF booth (5.1p19) 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 .01 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.”
