AMETEK SMP adds new Titanium strip grades to product portfolio for medical applications

Hamilton Precision Metals and SMP Wallingford, two of the six businesses that comprise AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP), are delighted to announce that they have added two new Titanium strip grades – grade 9 and 23 – to their product portfolio for medical applications.

Having developed a proprietary production process for both Ti grades, the two AMETEK facilities are now able to produce a thin strip that ultimately offers external charging capabilities for implanted medical devices when incorporated to the external shell.

This new production technology involves a cold rolling and annealing process that yields titanium strip with outstanding microstructure characteristics and formability properties.

Historically, Ti grades 1 and 2 are used for implantable medical devices such as CRM cardiac rhythm management and drug delivery systems. However, these grades don’t offer non-contact charging capabilities for batteries.

Using grades 9 and 23 allows for the manufacturing of smaller devices that enable safe, external re-charging for a range of transformative neuromodulation and neurostimulation therapy applications.

Our new Titanium strip grade products are set to make a major contribution to the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, sleep apnea and chronic pain without the use of opioids. We’re very excited to be a part of this ground-breaking therapeutic advance.”
