Surgical Instrument Lineup

Surgical Instruments Made Better by Ulbrich Alloys

Different surgical instruments and incision tools require different alloys and alloy characteristics. We're able to account for all of these at Ulbrich due to our huge inventory of alloys and immense rolling and annealing capabilities. So, whether your medical device requires an alloy to be heat treated to a higher hardness (like PH Grade alloys) or something non-magnetic and highly resistant to corrosion (like Austenitic alloys), we're able to make it happen.

Surgical instruments made with Ulbrich alloys include:

  • Scissors
  • Sheers
  • Surgical draws
  • Needles
  • Lances
  • Surgical grills & grinders
  • Surgical staplers/anvils
  • Stapler springs
  • Staples
  • Cardiovascular clamps
  • Tissue grabbers

Ulbrich Special Metals Critical to the Production & Performance of Surgical Instruments

When it comes to surgical instruments, we’re able to provide a number of stainless steel alloys—namely Austenitics, Martensitics, and Precipitation Hardening Grades—that are shaped and designed to perform very specific tasks. From cutting to pricking to stapling, the high-stakes demands of medical devices and surgical instruments require precision alloys with the exact specifications necessary to perform the job. And at Ulbrich, we have both the alloys and the ability to alter them to the specs your product needs.
