Physical Vapor Deposition for Medical Devices
Physical vapor deposition (PVD) has become widely used to deposit wear-resistant and bio-compatible thin film coatings on various types of medical devices, including medical pressure sensors, orthopedic implants, pacemakers, stents, surgical instruments, orthodontic appliances and dental instruments. Thin film deposition and PVD technology provides value in it's materials engineering capability. Thin films of materials can be used to enhance and/or modify the surface properties of a device without changing the underlying material properties and biomechanical functionality. Magnetron sputtering is well suited to materials engineering and the Kurt Lesker Company produces an extensive range of thin film deposition systems suited to various device applications. With emerging technologies such as HIPIMS , Pulsed DC reactive sputtering and Inverted Cylindrical Magnetron sputtering we are in an ideal position to personalize a tool for your unique and demanding application.
Our TORUS magnetron sputtering sources are manufactured in our Pittsburgh, PA headquarters and are optimized to provide the best sputtering efficiency and product throughput for the high value precious metals used in many applications. Through our extensive applications network and aided by a high degree of expertise in thin film technology we are also in a great position to work directly with you in a process development capacity.
