X-ray visible markers

Intravascular treatment using catheters requires visibility under fluoroscopy. TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo manufactures markers using Pt and Pt-Ir precious metals that are highly radiopaque.

Pt alloy wire

The Company manufactures wire using Pt, Pt-Ir, Pt-Ni, and Pt-W for guidewire and embolic coils.

Compositions other than the above wire can also be considered upon request.

Electrode tips

The Company manufactures electrodes for the tip components of EP and ablation catheters for arrhythmia treatment.

Microfabrication, such as drilling required for irrigation systems, is also available.

Laser-cut parts

Femtosecond laser machines enable processing with ultra-short pulse widths. As a result, the thermal effect on the material is extremely small and burrs do not occur. Various types of processing are available, such as tube cutting, drilling, notching, spiral, and thin film processing.

*These are offered as precious metal materials for industrial use.
