Nitinol Prototyping

Northern Nitinol supports small and large size companies with all aspects of their nitinol needs. We are at our best working as extended team members to help overcome many challenges associated with the development and commercialization of medical- nitinol implants and components. We are your nitinol allies and an honest broker dealing with product design, material sourcing, fabrication, testing and analysis.

We have supported many nitinol projects from concept to commercialization, both independently and as cross function team members within a corporation.

Partnering with world class vendors and utilizing our in-house prototyping capabilities allows us to contribute in an immediate and effective manner.
