Chemical Machining & Etching Services

Cranial Mesh & Plates

Tecomet is one of the world’s most trusted manufacturers of specialty medical devices and implants, including a full range of mesh and plates. Our team is uniquely positioned to meet the rigorous design and performance specifications of these life-saving medical technologies.

Tecomet has extensive experience working with the sensitive and specialized handling requirements of implantable metals frequently used in the manufacture of maxillofacial and neurocranial implants. Our highly-skilled engineers work closely with clients to provide design feedback that maximizes manufacturability, reduces cost, and ensures compliance with FDA and industry standards. As an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2013-certified manufacturer, it is our goal to ensure your total satisfaction at every project phase.

Etched Neurocranial Devices

Tecomet supports the design and manufacture of a complete range of maxillofacial and neurocranial and medical devices, including:

  • Custom cranial implants
  • Dental implants
  • Maxillofacial mesh and plates
  • Mandible implants
  • Orbital plates
  • Neurosurgical implants

Advantages of Etching

Tecomet implements proprietary technologies not available through any other manufacturer in the world. These advanced capabilities allow us to create burr-free products with tight tolerances, no heat-affected zones, and precision etching on material thicknesses  up to 0.040 inches. The etch process is more cost effective than other manufacturing methods because all features are chemically machined at the same time, as opposed to being individually cut by a laser or EDM. Etched countersinks, surface texture and 3D features can also be added to during the standard manufacturing process. All of our meshes and plates meet demanding industry and federal standards, as well as ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 13485:2016 requirements.
