For two decades, our strict Quality Management System has guided our development and operational procedures. We conduct IQ, OQ and PQ phases and implement statistical process control (SPC) to ensure a smooth transition from design prototype to high-volume manufacturing.

Supplier of choice for innovative technologies

miniaturized ceramic-to-metal feedthroughs for cochlear implants

Developing brazed, ceramic-to-metal feedthroughs for innovative devices such as Totally Implantable Cochlear Implants requires suppliers with skillsets in miniaturization and material science. Our R&D and Design and Engineering services produce some of the most precise and reliable feedthroughs found on the market, using our very own biocompatible advanced ceramic formula, (ALUCER®) and zirconia-based ceramics. 

Our quality assurance

As a proud supplier of implantable feedthroughs for the cochlear implants market, we strive for a quality thats systematically in line with our customer’s expecations and ensure our components uphold their unique specifications.

100% of our brazed assemblies are inspected according to the most important criteria:

  • Leak test for hermeticity
  • Electric tests
  • Thermal Shock
  • Dimension Inspection (random sampling, AQL standards)
