Stainless steel profiles for precision parts in medical technology

Stainless steel is widely used in the field of medical technology. The material is convincing for its corrosion resistance, good formability, strength, manufacturing precision, durability and hygiene. Instruments designed for medical applications must comply with strict standards and manufacturing requirements, and stainless steel is one of the most commonly used materials in the manufacture of medical technology.

The material’s high corrosion resistance is one of the key factors that make stainless steel particularly suitable for the manufacture of medical devices. The use of stainless steel in medical technology has the advantage that body tissue does not react chemically with the medical instruments. Stainless steel is used in many hospitals, medical practices and rescue services. The material is of high strength and is extremely deformable.

The metal is widely used in medical technology and can be chosen for various medical applications. Stainless steel does not rust, thus reducing the risk of infection from rust or other surface defects.
Stainless steel has antibacterial properties and is recyclable. The material does not discolour, can be reused and is easy to clean.
