Etching

Medical

Advances in the medical sector are progressing rapidly and many companies are being left behind in the pursuit for cutting-edge products. This has created many new challenges for manufacturers and in particular the increase in demand for titanium and titanium alloys used for medical implants.

Advanced Chemical Etching has responded by investing time and money into developing a unique process (TiME) for etching titanium and is now able to deep etch and profile material for customers involved in producing intricate medical devices.

Many customers are already switching on to this unique solution and tapping into our ability to provide burr-free, stress-free components within a few days to keep up with the medical sector's demand for 'right first time' products.

We can also make medical implants in other exotic materials such as Cobalt Alloy, Elgiloy ®, Nitinol, Tantalum, Tungsten, and Platinum Iridium.
