MeKo is a globally active supplier specialized in laser material processing for medical, aerospace, automotive and other components. The company has more than 25 years of experience, in particular in laser cutting of stents, heart valve frames and many other components made from metal and other materials. It has already manufactured over 70,000 different components.
Having developed its own modern and extremely precise laser systems, MeKo processes flat and tubular materials such as stainless steel and nickel titanium - as well as new bioresorbable materials such as magnesium and polymers. It offers kerf widths and drilling from 10 µm with dimensional accuracy of ± 5 µm. More than 2,000 materials and tube sizes are available and allow short-term prototyping.
Besides laser cutting, welding and drilling, MeKo offers a variety of secondary processing operations: heat treatment, passivation, electropolishing, shape-setting and all kinds of mechanical processing.
MeKo has been a pioneer in stent manufacturing since 1995. Today, the company is one of the largest stent suppliers worldwide. For this, MeKo uses unique processing operations to provide medical technology companies with individual high quality solutions. Thanks to its expertise, MeKo is known as a quality leader.
The internal Research and Development Department creates new, client-orientated solutions with the objective of a positive long-term cooperation.For example, RESOLOY® is a unique magnesium alloy for bioresorbable scaffolds and is freely available for MeKo clients. VASCULOY® is a nickel and cobalt-free alloy with optimal material properties for cardiovascular implants.
ISO 9001 compliant certification makes approval for medical products easy to obtain. The components are given a 100% final inspection and are packed for the clients in clean rooms.
Thanks to the 24/7 manufacturing, orders can be processed in a timely fashion and components are rapidly shipped all over the world.
