Nitinol Braiding

Our expertise in nitinol braiding and post-processing of braided constructs delivers exceptional quality and endless innovation for biomedical structures, fabrics, and custom materials. Resonetics provides a comprehensive range of braiding solutions to meet the most demanding needs of medtech and life sciences manufacturers.

Our experienced engineers deliver a wide range of customizable nitinol braiding solutions, such as uniform or variable pick counts, braid-to-shape services, single close-end braiding, and custom CAD and modeling.

Nitinol Braiding Applications

Nitinol braiding is essential to a wide range of applications within modern medical devices and technologies, including:

  • Stents
  • Flow diverters
  • Thrombectomy devices
  • Mesh ablation
  • EP diagnostic baskets
  • LAA Occlusion Devices
  • Intraarterial shunts
  • Embolic protection devices
  • Expandable introducers
  • Heart failure implants
  • Stone retrievers

Nitinol Braiding Capabilities

  • Horizontal Braiding – 24/48 or 42/84
  • Net shaping of Nitinol braids

Implantable Braid Post-Processing Capabilities

Polymer Coatings: Used to create impermeable barriers, eliminate tissue adhesion to an implant, or contain organic materials. Thickness can vary from as low as 5μm.

Wire Welding: Used to secure wire ends or facilitate subsequent braid assembly. By securing the ends, wires can be welded together and secured to a marker band or looped to create an atraumatic end.

Electropolishing: Smooths and polishes Nitinol braids to achieve a microscopically featureless surface, improving device functionality and bio-compatibility while reducing the risk of corrosion.

Shape Setting: Used to achieve complex shapes like domes, discs, and prolapsed designs. These dimensional changes transform the mechanical properties of the braid for various desired effects, such as reducing implant migration.
