WHO WE ARE
NDC is the world's most complete provider of nitinol products and
services. We produce nitinol material. We produce nitinol
components from prototype phase to full production. We offer a full
array of services that include design, component testing, analysis,
simulation, and regulatory support. Teaming with us can accelerate
your nitinol device development timeline.
Now a completely independent and privately held company, NDC
is the medical device industry's partner of choice for nitinol
NDC’s primary focus is the medical device industry with particular
attention on the vascular, neuro-vascular and orthopedic device
NDC has the broadest understanding of the use of nitinol materials
for medical device applications of any supplier.
We’ve developed market proven processes to make nitinol
components such as stents, filters, frames and orthopedic
components. NDC pioneered precision laser cutting of nitinol
tubing for medical devices. We produce a wide array of
components that involve many operations such as: wire, tube, strip
and sheet cutting and forming, laser machining, welding, EDM,
surface finishing, and electro-polishing. We have prototyping
capability and full-scale production facilities. We also offer a wide
range of testing services; such as mechanical properties, corrosion,
FEA, failure analysis, fatigue analysis; and device design services.
We are a high volume fabricator of semi-finished nitinol materials:
wire and tube, strip, bar, and sheet products, that supports our
external customers and the components made in house. NDC offers
the only continuous superelastic nitinol sheet product available in the
world that is ideal for volume stamping and etching processes.
In 2011 NDC opened a state-of-the-art nitinol guidewire facility in
Costa Rica. This year NDC is expanding the facility to produce
nitinol components in the vascular, neuro, and orthopedic markets
to better serve our customers.
