MeKo is a globally active supplier specialized in laser material processing. Our Quality Management is ISO certified and passes FDA inspections. We manufacture medical components for all medical branches like Cardiology, Radiology, Neurology, Ophtalmology and Urology.
We have more than 30 years of experience in laser cutting, laser drilling and laser welding of metals and other materials. More than 100,000 different components have been manufactured already, like stents, heart valve frames and many other components made from metal and other materials.
With our extremely precise laser systems, we process flat and tubular materials such as stainless steel and nickel titanium - as well as new bioresorbable materials like magnesium and polymers. More than 2,000 materials and tube sizes are available in stock.
With our modern ultrashort pulse lasersystems, we achieve smallest tolerances. The USP-systems are used for micro components or microhole drilling for Drug Delivery Balloon Catheters with drill-diameters from 2 µm on.
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, we are one of the largest stent contract manufacturers worldwide and considered as the quality leader. For this, MeKo uses unique processing operations to provide medical technology companies with individual high quality solutions.
MeKos passion is to maintain and develop technological leadership in order to offer clients added value for their products. Our in-house research develops new customer-oriented solutions in long-term cooperations. MeKo is dedicated to technological leadership for precision and quality to offer customers an added value for their products.
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. The component surfaces can be further improved with surface modifications. LowElast optimises the crimping properties of L605 stents.
Upon request, the components can be subjected to a 100 % visual control in order to ensure perfect quality. They can be minutely analysed in the MeKo laboratories and tested with different visual and mechanical processes. Our ISO 13485 certification makes approval for medical products easy to obtain. As MeKo uses its series production machines for prototyping, the series production can be smoothly ramped up to large quantities without additional validations.
Since it was founded in 1991 by Dr. Meyer-Kobbe, MeKo has been successfully manufacturing components for its clients. The company is located in Sarstedt, near Hannover, with more than 200 employees. Thanks to the 24/7 manufacturing and our rapid prototyping orders can be processed in the short-term. The components are shipped worldwide.
