Why EPE?


Application Examples

Valve body

made from TECAFLON PVDF natural

Gear case for tooth rack

made of TECAPEEK natural and TECAPEEK PVX black

Bottle gripper

made of polyimide TECASINT 6032

Case Studies

Knee trial implants

made of TECASON P MT

Test Implants for Knee Joint Prostheses

Manufacturers of knee endoprostheses are now in a global market for sales and customers. Apart from the actual implant, tools and instruments are of increasing importance. These facilitate handling during the operation, enhance patient safety and may even reduce the follow-up expenses for reprocessing. These instruments include test implants, which sometimes serve to differentiate products from the competitors. 

Needleblock

made of TECAFORM AH blue

Needleblock for meat processing

Not only the components which come into direct contact with food should be made of materials which comply with food contact regulations. This block is a component of a fully automated system developed to enhance flavour and shelf life by saline injection using needles, so safety is an important requirement.

Target arm

made of TECATEC PEEK MT CW50

Orthopaedic fixing systems

The goal of orthopaedic trauma treatment is to restore a broken bone to its correct position and orientation. When this is done by means of surgical intervention, fixing systems are used to secure the bone in the anatomically correct position. Manufacturers of such fixing systems need to meet many and exacting requirements in terms of function, weight and appearance, at the same time as keeping an eye on the overall costs in view of increasingly tight budgets.
