Furukawa has developed and manufactured NiTi Alloys (Nitinol) for over 50 years. This experience and expertise enables Furukawa to offer special high quality material, which is particularly attractive to the medical device maker. The company manufactures from the melting (ingot) stage and through to final product (tube and wire), therefore they can also offer many customised grades of raw material to suit the customer’s requirements. Feedback from their medical device customers has been very positive, regarding high quality and performance of their NiTi products e.g. high fatigue life. Furukawa manufactures seamless NiTi tubes in a wide dimensional range from ~0.300mm O/D to ~15.000mm O/D.
