Quality and reliability: our solutions and services for the healthcare industry

When you are talking about helping people, the highest reliability and precision is what is demanded. That is why there are very strict requirements for the components and materials being used in medical technology. Our materials are perfectly suited for this: molybdenum and tungsten, in particular, are extremely heat-resistant and also have a high density. They help to ensure reliable heat management and reliable radiation protection, among other things.

We manufacture stationary anodes and rotating X-ray anodes from refractory metals and their alloys for X-ray equipment and computer tomography. We also make tube and detector components such as rotors, bearing components, cathode assemblies, components for emitters, CT collimators, and shieldings as well as medical fine wires from our materials. 

We know the requirements for the products being used here very well due to our decades of experience in the area of medical technology. That is why medical device manufacturers have been relying on our products made from refractory metals for many years now. Our materials scientists and engineers will work together with you to find innovative and customized solutions for your application.

From powder to the final product

Uncompromising quality and the highest degree of accuracy are the prerequisites for medical technology. That is why we do not outsource here. Our production chain starts with the reduction of ultrapure oxide to metal powder. This is the only way that we can guarantee the high material purity of our products. We manufacture compact, metal parts from porous powder blanks. Using special forming processes and mechanical processing steps as well as modern coating and connection technologies, we turn these into complex components with the highest density and quality. At the same time, our investment in mines in the West helps to ensure a secure supply of raw materials. You also benefit from our in-house production as well as our international manufacturing network, meaning delivery capability is guaranteed.
