Pharmaceuticals / Research / Medical sectorThe pharmaceutical and chemical industries are characterized by wear-intensive mass-production. These call for wear-resistant powder molding tools. By using our high-performance materials, tool life can be increased several times while also greatly reducing costs.
Applications for NHT high-performance materialsCarbides and specialty metals for food processing and medical devices
- Scoring and peeling knives for the glass industry (phioles)
- Press punches for tablet shaping
- Carbide inserts for surgical scissors
- Needle holder plate
- Carbide specialty tools
- Tungsten crucibles
- Tungsten needles for cannula production
- Shields for radionuclides
- TZM nozzles
Based on its high variable density and high absorption capacity of x-rays and gamma rays, our tungsten heavy-metal is ideally suited as a shielding material in radiation equipment applications.
Molybdenum and its alloys are used in x-ray equipment and computer tomographs as heavy-duty anodes. Efficient alignment and reduced scatter radiation is achieved based on their good thermal conductivity. This also reduces the radiation exposure of operators and components.
