The Technical Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials is a world leader in designing and manufacturing ceramic implants and complex ceramic assemblies for surgical tools, medical instrumentation, therapeutic and diagnostic equipment. We have an in-depth understanding of the requirements, standards and processes of medical markets around the world.
Our high quality ceramics are favoured by healthcare device manufacturers and the medical professions for their exceptional physical characteristics. Our medical engineering expertise means we can make optimised healthcare products such as:
- Ceramic-to-metal assemblies including feedthroughs for implantable devicessuch as pacemakers, cochlear implants, and defibrillators.
- Piezoceramic composite components
- Medical sensors
- Transducers for surgery and dental procedures
- Blood shear valves for hematology applications
Our piezo ceramic components are used extensively in medical ultrasound, where the density of our materials (in particular our 1-2 and 2-2 piezo composite materials) are enabling increased resolution ultrasonic imaging.
Our high drive materials offer superior electrical and mechanical loss characteristics for the design of efficient small-scale medical tools such as ultrasonic dental descalers and ultrasonic scalpels.
We can make bespoke ultrasonic air-in-line sensors with secondary sensing functions (eg optical / pressure) for precision medical equipment such as infusion pumps.
Our capabilities in thin film electroding, photolithography, precision dicing and composites make us the ideal sub- assembly supplier. Our custom multilayer, bimorph actuator and sensor capabilities are ideal for valve and drug nebulization applications.
Blood Shear Valves
For over 20 years we have specialised in the production of blood shear valves and peripheral components used in hematology instruments used for blood cell counts and related testing.
Our materials provide a barrier to organic growth and provide resistance to harsh reagents and cleaning chemicals used in these instruments, making them an excellent choice for hematology applications.
