various marker bands


Our marker bands, manufactured in platinum, platinum+iridium, gold or tantalum are cut into lengths, down to 0.25 mm according to clients’ demands via an original process which guarantees high precision and a burr-free finish.

silver endo tubes

Endoscopy Tubing

Endoscope tubing is produced in 304L and 316L stainless steel, in Phynox© or in Elgiloy©. Phynox© and Elgiloy© are structurally hardened materials which allows for improved resistance when under stress. Wall thicknesses from 0.0012” and surface roughness with a Ra > 0.1 microns and cut according to client needs.

various diao tubes


Diagnostic probes are manufactured in 316L stainless steel to improve protection against corrosion. In applications where probes are subject to stress, Phynox or Elgiloy may be used. Our precision probes enable the highest quality results.
