Stainless Steel Tubing for Medical Devices
Servicing the medical market has been a key part of Vita’s business -- in our early years, we supplied needles for the Allied forces in World War II! It’s still at the core of what we do best.
Often starting with 304 or 316 stainless steel tubing (or one of the many other alloys we provide), we maintain a variety of fabrication capabilities to produce anything from simple tube cutoffs to sophisticated products with complex geometries and features. Some of our most frequently utilized capabilities include EDM, CNC turning/milling, EC cutoff and grinding and welding along with many other capabilities and our own proprietary technologies. Of note to the medical industry, we also manufacture tubing components/assemblies out of 17-7 alloy, which is a high tensile strength alloy useful where desired mechanical loads exceed that of a comparable 304 or 316 stainless steel tube.
A considerable portion of our production for the medical market consists of stainless steel tubular fabricated products and needle assemblies. We supply cannula/needle components for countless medical applications, fabricated orthopedic instrument components and fabricated tubular products for ophthalmologic use. We also manufacture ground cutter tubes, solid trocars, and countless different ground points and turned parts of various geometries. With experience manufacturing countless thousands of components over decades, we’re able to produce products that others might not consider because chances are we’ve made something similar before.
