Let us inspire you and create the products of the future

As your partner in the design process, we strive to integrate operations and maintain responsive and comprehensive interaction with you. Together, we can design a process and product that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Let us inspire your product innovation for the future.

Katina has long experience in the company and has been part of developing products for various sensing solutions.

Materials and components we offer:

Materials we offer: Stainless steel grades, MP35N, copper based alloys, additional medical and precious metal grade alloys such as Pt, PtIr and Au and multiple resistance alloys.

Product forms including wire, fine wire, coated wire, flat wire, plated wire, coils, guidewire material, multi-filar wire forms as micro cables or stranded constructions.

We produce ultra-fine wire, round wire sizes range from 0.010 to 10 mm (0.00039 to 0.394 in.), for most alloys. Other sizes available upon request.

We can make various product forms, sizes and combinations. Tell us what you want and we can find a solution together.

Ribbon wire thickness ranges from 0.013 to 0.75 mm (0.0005 to 0.03 in) with aspect ratios up to 10:1. Larger aspect ratios up to 40:1 may also be available upon request.

The alloy or base material can be supplied with or without a polymer coating in various colors. Typical thickness is 2,5 µm – 25 µm (.0001” - .001”), thicker on request. Surface finishes can be modified with gold, nicker or silver plating or provided with an oxidized layer (when not a noble metal).

Another key competence at the Sandvik Palm Coast facility is coating where we besides traditional polymer and PTFE coatings also can offer custom formulations.

We also support our customers to produce wire-based components. From precision tolerance coating to multi-filar micro cables, we can provide you the best possible solution for your specific medical device application. We can help you conceive and implement innovative materials solutions that can make the manufacture of your device highly reliable and meet the strict quality requirements.

The wire-based applications are used for applications cardio/cardio vascular, neuro/spine, glucose monitoring and cochlear implants. Read more here
