Ultra-Fine Metal Tubing Smoothes the Way for Miniaturized Medical Devices
Date:5/18/2010

Mini medical instruments require highly specialized metal tubing and innovative suppliers with ultra-fine finishing capabilities

(PRWEB) -- The increased miniaturization of medical devices such as surgical instruments and imaging tools continues to proliferate, paying off in many ways. One of the integral items that have helped to facilitate the use of miniaturized medical devices has been the metal tubing through which these devices pass, and that perform vital associated tasks such as aspiration, the cleanout of debris, and injection of fluids such as medications.

Composed of medical-grade metal in sizes commonly as thin as a pin, miniature tubing is used for a wide assortment of procedures ranging from ultra-fine catheters to miniscule implants.

“While these small metal tubes are probably considered ancillary to many miniaturized medical applications, they have certainly facilitated them,” says Lance Heft, CEO of International Tube. “Yet this is a highly specialized area that requires both sophisticated metallurgical expertise as well as unique fabrication skills. Those capabilities are necessary not only to produce custom products while avoiding unnecessary costs, but the key requirement is to eliminate any possibility of failure during use.”

Heft says that when designing and fabricating medical tubing it is vital to be able to draw the necessary material to the needed diameter. Perhaps more important, the tube must have an even, smooth ID. Also, specialized shapes may be essential, requiring swaging, flaring or threading a portion of a tube.

For example, International Tube was involved in the devel
