Medical Platinum Castings

Medical Platinum Casting

Applications for medical platinum castings are steadily increasing, and given our strong background serving this market TechForm is well suited to meet the standards required for production.

TechForm has its roots in serving the medical industry.  Our first medical castings were orthopedic implants with later entry into the field of endoscopic instrumentation.  In 2005, after the base metal division of our company was sold, we sharpened our focus to castings produced in platinum group metals.

Why Platinum?

Platinum’s unique properties make it irreplaceable in a vast number of applications. These desirable properties will typically fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • Density
  • Biocompatibility
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Electrical Conductivity
  • High Temperature Capability

Product Development

We are an experienced co-developer of products, working in tandem with our customers to assure that cast products are developed as efficiently and effectively as possible.  The prototyping process at TechForm is highly flexible with the use of 3D pattern printing, allowing for simultaneous production of multiple design iterations if desired.  Once a final design is determined through prototyping, hard wax or plastic injection tooling can be produced with minimal risk for the need of downstream modifications.

Additional Services

TechForm also offers the following services for castings that may require further processing and certification:

  • Hot Isostatic Pressing (densification)
  • Heat Treatment
  • X-Ray Inspection
  • Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection
  • Dimensional Layout and Sampling
