Implantable Feedthroughs

For over 20 years, MTC Alberox has produced a wide array of implantable ceramic feedthroughs. Designed to provide superior reliability and durability, our medical implants feature innovative ceramic-to-metal seal assembly technology. Utilizing its application engineering expertise, MTC Alberox custom manufactures these ceramic feedthroughs to meet the specific needs of the medical implant market.

Designed with flexibility in mind for custom medical applications, MTC Alberox's implantable feedthroughs are constructed from a variety of biocompatible metal components, superior high purity Alumina (Al203) insulators and pure gold braze. We also offer synthetic rubies and sapphires as insulators for our custom engineered medical implants.

We specialize in placing multiple leads in a single ceramic to minimize the feedthrough footprint in the device. This ceramic-to-metal design allows for cost competitive manufacturing through a repeatable validated manufacturing process. Our vertically integrated facility gives us complete control over the entire feedthrough manufacturing process, from ceramic powder through final testing. For increased customer satisfaction, all of our medical implants implantable feedthroughs are 100% traceable for both process and components, and are produced in our ISO 13485 certified facility.

For increased reliability, MTC Alberox's medical implantable feedthroughs feature robust designs that minimize the risk of device failure. The superior electrical properties of the ceramic allow for smaller feedthroughs. These innovations within the family of medical implants allow for the increased reliability of implantable devices and contribute to the application-specific benefits of ceramic-to-metal assemblies.

X-Ray/CT Scanning

MTC Alberox produces a family of medical x-ray components, from anodes and cathodes to getter assemblies. Utilizing our advanced ceramic-to-metal seal technology we are able to provide reliable and robust x-ray components.. We are capable of manufacturing custom solutions to the unique challenges within the x-ray market, based upon the expansive knowledge and expertise of our applications engineers.

MTC Alberox's medical x-ray products combine a variety of metal components and high purity Alumina (Al203) ceramic with flexible, custom designs. This Our ceramic-to-metal designs also ensure cost competitive manufacturing by incorporating a consistent, repeatable manufacturing process. The design flexibility, along with the availability of upper level builds, produces medical x-ray components to the customer's specification at a lower total cost.

Reliability, is a core element within our design and manufacturing process, which is why MTC Alberox's medical x-ray components reduce the risk of hermetic leakers, offer thermal shock resistance and are engineered without size restrictions. The superior electrical properties of the components also allow for a higher power and safety margin design. The innovations developed by MTC Alberox within the family of x-ray components allow for the longer life of x-ray tubes and showcase the many application-specific advantages of ceramic-to-metal assemblies.
