Ceramics in medical technology
Components used in medical technology have to meet particular standards when it comes to the methods of quality assurance, production, and process monitoring used. The materials must meet stringent requirements with regard to biocompatibility and durable, reliable process use.
This is why the field of medical technology has relied on aluminum oxide ceramics from Kyocera for decades for their outstanding properties. From X-ray technology to radiation treatment for cancer, ceramic-metal assemblies permit accurate diagnosis and gentle patient care. Mechanical stability and temperature resistance in combination with excellent electrical insulating properties are crucial factors when selecting materials in this high-tech industry in order to produce particularly high-performance products. Our specialty ceramics meet these requirements across the board. For market leaders in medical X-ray technology, key components made of Kyocera ceramics have been pillars of success for decades.
