Precision. Protection. Performance.

The immense demand for high-tech coating solutions is rapidly growing in the medical industry and is expected to continue expanding exponentially in the future.

CTS is always at the forefront of innovation, currently applying ceramic coatings to instruments used in advanced surgical procedures that demand extreme precision. These highly technical and specialized coatings necessitate a high-yield production process that is both repeatable and consistent.

To ensure the highest level of quality demanded by the medical industry, we’ve also developed an automated inspection vision system that provides a 100% grade inspection within our coating process. Integrating this system into our technology allows us to individually inspect and coat thousands of devices daily while retaining superior quality control and specification compliance.

Antimicrobial coatings are desirable in the medical setting to mitigate the risk of bacterial infections and illnesses spreading. Thermal spray is often used to change a steel, plastic, or other non-protected surfaces into an antimicrobial surface by spraying copper or silver layer. Medical bandages, hospital beds, door handles, and other surfaces currently get thermally sprayed antimicrobial coatings.

CTS offers numerous coating solutions for the medical industry. Such coatings are used for applications for the surface enhancements:

  • Antimicrobial
  • Electrical resistivity, dielectric coating properties
  • High emissivity

CTS has vast experience in coatings used for electrosurgery, specifically to electrically isolate certain components in these devices. The coating in these circumstances can minimize thermal spray during surgery and prevent short-circuiting and unwanted welding of components together.

We serve various surface engineering needs in the medical field and can help your team troubleshoot what materials and thicknesses to apply to achieve the desired change in surface properties.
