Materials and parts for Surgery

For operations on or in a patient’s body various instruments and devices are required. We offer a wide range of materials and parts for this demanding medical field. We machine surgical instruments such as handles, surgical cutlery or camera housings as well as trial implants in many clearly visible colours. Beside this our high-performance materials are also used in minimally invasive surgery - for example as an eyepiece funnel, endoscopy, guides or sliding elements.

Typical parts include

  • Handels

  • Cutlery

  • Housings

  • Trial implants

  • Funnels

  • Guides

  • Sliding elements

Product examples

The performance and service life of materials used in the healthcare sector are influenced by a variety of factors. When choosing the right material, factors such as surface quality requirements, contact with cleaning agents, disinfectants, dimensions and/or tolerances are essential.

Case Studies

Plastic components for endoscopes

  • Challenge: Lower weight than previous metal construction so surgeions can operate longer and more delicately

  • Sustason® PPSU MG was chosen in order to reduce weight

  • Sterilisation resistance over 1,000 cycles + surface finishing upon customer request

  • Better feeling as plastic is warmer than metal

  • Machined in tight tolerances

  • Different colors available

Handle for surgical instruments

  • Challenge: Sterilisable, High quality feel and high surface quality, Machined in tight tolerances

  • SustaPEEK MG was chosen because of his special properties:

  • Good stability required for manufacture (complex components & tight tolerances)

  • Dissipative to heat

  • Good thermal properties

  • Good chemical resistance
