Hamilton sees demand for titanium foil in medical field

AMETEK Hamilton Precision Metals is continuing to see a rise in the worldwide demand for its high-quality titanium strip and foil products for implantable medical devices.
Hamilton Precision Metals specializes in custom-engineering titanium foil in grades 1, 2, 4 and 9. The strip manufacturer can produce gauges as thin as a few microns for specialty applications of titanium in an implantable device. Creating this titanium foil involves a cold rolling and annealing process that yields advantageous properties for medical device manufacturers.
Advantages include outstanding microstructure characteristics and formability, customized surface finishes to mitigate splitting, excellent corrosion resistance, and weldability to allow for use in hermetically sealed products. Hamilton Precision Metals offers tight quality controls on materials and processes to deliver consistently reproducible results.
Hamilton Precision Metals develops titanium materials for implantable shields. The shields are used by the largest pacemaker, drug-infusion pump, and electronic implant manufacturers around the world. Other applications include cardiac monitors, neurostimulator implants, and defibrillators.
