GTI’s aptitude with Nitinol processing span over 25 years.
Our capabilities include:
Electropolish and other surface treatments.
In house manufacturing of mandrels and fixtures.
Austenite Finish temperature (Af) testing & reports.
This self-expanding material of choice for applications that require enormous flexibility and motion is a staple in the cardiovascular, neurovascular, endovascular, peripheral vascular, orthopedic, spinal, urology and dental arenas.
Sealing temperature, cycle time and sealing pressure controlled by predefined parameters.
Robust shop floor control and quality management systems are designed to support traceability.
For cost reduction and performance requirements, GTI offers a wide range of product packaging capabilities, from bulk pack to a fully kitted and assembled product, which we ship for sterilization.
Note: As a value-add service, GTI offers start-ups the option to rent our Clean Room on an hourly basis allowing clients the opportunity to work in real time with our dedicated team of engineers and QA team.
In addition, GTI offers the capability of depositing optical dielectric coating for hollow CO2 fiber optics.
This process provides low losses, a nearly pure mode delivery and a good high laser power transmission. By proper design of the dielectric thickness, the guide can deliver a very flexible and robust waveguide, producing an optical high powered laser device used for medical devices as well as for other applications.
GTI offers bending services to accommodate multiple step parts between laser cutting and surface treatment. Keeping the part in house in our highly regulated environments maintains superior product and cost competitiveness.
3D printing has become the new standard for surgical excellence. The potential for design, engineering, customized 3D models and surgical instruments is endless.
3D printing technology enables the use of a patient specific anatomy to create a physical 3D model which can help to accurately plan a surgical approach, or alternatively, to model custom prosthetics and surgical tools.
This unique technology helps surgeons and hospitals to run an easier, more efficient and faster procedures, in addition to shortening the patient’s rehabilitation process.
All parts are produced using fully certified biocompatible materials and all instruments are being sterilized prior to use.
3D printed parts are used in the following surgical categories:
The introduction of Nitinol with its self-expanding properties has greatly impacted the medical industry and revolutionizing the success of surgeries. Today, Nitinol is a preferred material in the medical device industry, where advanced stents, as well as a variety of other flexible instruments, are being made from it.
Nitinol has few special features and properties that makes him suitable for the medical sector:
Super elasticity properties for shape memory deployment.
Bio-compatible for orthopedic implants, expanding stents, heart valves.
Laser cutting technologies are being used in the development of robotic assemblies. Many components in the robot can be laser cut at GTI and therefore can be custom made to meet your engineering and design specifications.
The commonly used robotic surgical system consists of a mechanical arm and a camera arm attached to surgical instruments which is controlled by a surgeon being seated at a computer console which can be operated from the same room as the surgical table, or remotely from anywhere in the world.
As a complete turnkey solution provider, GTI Medical can manufacture, weld and laser mark your robotic parts quickly and efficiently.
We are active in building surgical instruments for Tier 1 companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Stryker and Lumenis.
Our company has taken on projects from Tier 1 suppliers to build surgical tools, helping them to reduce time to market by more than 60% (from 36 to 13 months) resulting in a per-scheduled product launch, which consequentially, provided them with a relative advantage in a highly competitive and time sensitive market.
GTI can produce single surgical tools or take responsibility and provide a turnkey solution to manufacture, assemble and package complete kits.
Over the years, GTI Medical has developed the ability to take on the responsibility for entire manufacturing project and presents it to the client completely finished and ready to be used.
Such projects may include design for manufacturing, cost reduction phase, overall purchasing, technical support, writing of work instructions, assembly, final inspection, labeling, packaging and strict quality assurance.
Below is partial list of projects done by GTI:
Navigation system assembly.
ENT surgery device.
Precise surgical tool for enhanced robotic assisted surgery.
GTI delivers precision laser cutting of tubes and plates made from implantable metal alloys and polymers intended for use in surgical tools, medical components, flexible tubes, robotic parts, implants, electrical resistors and more. All applications are cut to meet your tightest tolerances and specifications.
