Nitinol is an incredible super-elastic, shape memory alloy with conductive properties. Made from titanium and nickel, Nitinol is used to make micro sensors and many other devices requiring extreme levels of precision. Nitinol has a high degree of biocompatibility; as a result, it’s desired for medical implants and for insertion into the human body. Nitinol tubing is commonly used to make catheters, stents, and super-elastic needles. In dentistry, Nitinol is used in orthodontics for brackets and wires connecting the teeth. Like many of the alloys we work with, Nitinol can be challenging to machine but we do it well. We machine nitinol into screws and medical guidewires, and can grind nitinol as a secondary operation.
