Morgan Technical Ceramics (MTC) will be showcasing its custom ceramic machining, metallizing and brazing capabilities at the BIOMEDevice Exposition & Conference, taking place December 4-5, 2012, at the San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, CA Booth #1223.

Brazing TechniquesPersonnel from Morgan Technical Ceramics will be on hand to discuss a new service that offers a quick turnaround of metallized ceramic parts for the medical device market. The capabilities are ideal for use in electron microscopy and electron beam lithography, and in power tubes for X-ray and cathode ray tube applications.
Additionally, MTC will be introducing its new UltinexTM active brazing technology, which is capable of joining virtually all ceramics or metal-to-ceramics together. UltinexTM active brazing combines MTC’s in-house technology Sputnik partdevelopments with its vast experience in brazing, to offer comprehensive solutions with higher production yields. These brazing services are ideal for implantable hearing aids and minimally invasive surgical tools.

MTC will also be displaying its advanced machining capabilities for Corning MACOR® machineable glass ceramic, a material well known for its excellent physical properties, high dielectric strength, electrical resistivity, and ability to withstand high temperature while providing tight tolerance capability. MTC has developed and supplied components manufactured from MACOR® for use in complex ceramic assemblies for surgical tools, medical instrumentation, and therapeutic and diagnostic equipment.

With MTC’s in-house expertise and capabilities, there is no need to outsource machining of MACOR® when manufacturing custom made parts. MTC is an approved distributor of Corning MACOR® machineable glass through its Wesgo/Duramic facility, in Fairfield NJ.
