Carpenter's Custom 465 Stainless Opens Doors to
New Business for Veridiam's Medical OEMs
A contract manufacturer servicing original equipment manufacturers in the endoscopy/arthroscopy, orthopedic, dental/orthodontic and vascular markets has been making significant inroads into selling machined components for medical blade applications over the last several years. This is partly because of its customers' increased use of Custom 465 stainless, produced by Carpenter Technology Corp.
Stainless Steels for Small-Diameter Applications
BioDur 108 alloy and Custom 465 stainless, two stainless steel alloys, have been designed for small-diameter applications that require high strength and corrosion resistance, and in the case of BioDur 108 - no interference with magnetic fields.
Manufacturer Meets Medical
One San Diego contract manufacturer sees tremendous Expansion-and has no plans on slowing down.
Custom 465® Offers Significant Advantages
As surgical procedures have become more complex and noninvasive, the requirements for instruments have become more demanding. Proper material selection is critical in instrument development. The material properties that must be considered include bio-compatibility, physical and mechanical properties as well as fabricability.
Engineering and Design Options for EDM
EDM could present alternatives to conventional machining for very intricate and so-called impossible parts. This article appeared in MD&DI magazine, Guide to Medical Precision Technology supplement.
Stainless Steels for Tubular Components in Surgical Instruments
Continuing advances in surgical techniques are requiring more instruments that use metal tubular components. The design requirements for these instruments are becoming ever more demanding as the procedures become more complex and confined. This article appeared in MD&DI magazine.
A Better Way to Fix Bones
An essentially nickel-free stainless alloy has shown higher levels of strength with fatigue and corrosion resistance making it an alternative alloy for biomedical implants and medical devices.
Stainless Steel for Medical Implants
The high level of Nitrogen in BioDur 108 stainless steel provides enhanced mechanical and physical properties for medical implants.
Properties of an Essentially Nickel-Free
Stainless Alloy for Medical Implants
For some time, the medical device industry has expressed interest in a biocompatible, nickel-free stainless steel as an alternative to the alloys commonly used in implantable Orthopaedic devices such as bone plates; bone screws; fracture, trauma and spinal fixation components; hip and knee parts and other medical instruments currently manufactured from conventional nickel-containing alloys.
New Stainless Hand Tools Have High Strength,
Toughness for Service in Corrosive or Clean Room Environments
A new line of high-performance, stainless steel hand tools offers a unique combination of attributes that have been considered useful to the medical, biomedical, biotech, pharmaceutical, food, nuclear, marine and other industries concerned with clean room sterility and/or exposure to corrosive environments.
Speciality Alloys and Titanium Shapes to Consider
for Latest Medical Materials Requirements
Carpenter Technology Corporation has developed a series of specialty alloys that can be considered to meet the latest requirements of the medical and dental industries for hand-held instruments, implanted fixation devices, replacement joints and orthodontic material.
Unique Properties of Alloys for the Medical
and Dental Products Industry

NiTiNOL is a nickel titanium alloy which has remarkable 'shape memory' or 'super-elastic' characteristics, i.e. once a shape is set it will return to the original shape , or maintain it's original shape after an initial deformation. This unique property provides many opportunities and end applications for this alloy, especially in the medical device industry.
Semiconductor Probe Needles
Part number clarification, terminology, tolerances and material properties.
Probe Needle Capabilities
Overview of the complete probe manufacturing process.
Semiconductor Probe Current Carrying Capacity
The current carrying capacity (or ampacity) of a cantilevered probe is limited by the maximum permissible temperature rise of the conductor and the bond pad under normal operating conditions.
Semiconductor Probe Resistance
Resistivity is a measure of a conductor's resistance to the flow of current. The units of resistancy, Ω-cir. mil/ft (1 Ω-cir. mil/ft = 6.015 µΩ cm), refer to a conductor one foot in length with a 1.0-mil (0.001 in.) diameter, circular cross section.
