Whether artificial joints for knees, hips and shoulders, dental implants or bone screws and plates – cutting edge medical technology is significantly improving the quality of life of patients well into old age. This is true as long as the implant lives up to its promise: it works flawlessly and has a long service life. Making sure that these requirements are met demands absolute precision when producing these complex components. This, in turn, requires the use of high-quality tools in the manufacturing process.
Just as patients rely on high-quality implants, many medical technology companies rely on the extensive carbide and manufacturing expertise of CERATIZIT when machining their products as well as our quality tools. These include leading companies from the dental sector, manufacturers of surgical forceps and producers of implants, such as osteosynthesis products. As a creative and expert partner, we support these businesses in all their activities and develop customised, efficient tooling solutions for their applications.
From our own carbide powder through to the ideal and often custom tool solution to documentation by the ToolScope monitoring system – as one of the few manufacturers of precision tools made from carbide, we are masters of the entire process chain. This means we can guarantee the best level of quality at every stage of the manufacturing process for our high-tech products. Performance improvements and adjustments are also carried out by our versatile team of specialists. This lets you continuously optimise your processes and ensures that your collaboration with us is completely hassle-free.
The biocompatibility requirement for medical devices improves patient safety. As a result, we are the world's first and only company to certify its carbide grades for in-vitro cytotoxicity in line with DIN EN ISO 10993-5. Many of our tools are therefore considered safe for the production of sensitive, biocompatible products, such as implants. So, if you value certified quality that meets the specific premium FDA requirements, we are your perfect partner. This ultimately benefits human health. (*U.S. Food & Drug Administration)
