Nitinol Shape Setting

Nitinol shape setting allows medical device manufacturers to bring highly complex components to life for applications such as heart valve frames, stents, and delivery systems. Our engineers understand the material properties of nitinol and work with our in-house precision tooling center to make fixtures to produce even the most complex nitinol shapes. We also develop and manufacture our own automated electropolishing equipment that allows us to maintain tight control of the processing parameters and have a stable and repeatable process.

Nitinol Shape Setting Applications

Nitinol shape setting is a heat setting process for creating complex components for applications such as:

  • Heart valve frames
  • Neurovascular flow retrieval stents
  • Carotid stents
  • Peripheral stents
  • Biliary stents
  • Delivery system components
