165 years of innovative and pioneering technologies in the precious metals sector
Because of their biocompatibility and outstanding properties such as high resistance to corrosion and excellent electrical conductivity, precious metals are crucial to the medical devices industry. C.HAFNER makes highly complex preforms from precious metals such as gold and silver, and also from palladium and platinum group alloys. Products range from micromachined parts and radiopaque microcomponents to implants – as one-off items or for series production. C.HAFNER’s development and applications engineers cooperate closely with the customers’ specialists to create innovative and carefully customised solutions.
C.HAFNER’s product range extends from simple standard semi-finished products such as strips, sheets, wires, profiles and tubes to a variety of special shapes and highly complex primary products with dimensions ranging from a few hundredths of a millimetre to several millimetres – to meet the specific requirements of our customers.
Turned and milled parts:
C.HAFNER develops and manufactures high-precision turned and milled parts from all conventional precious metal alloys to meet the most stringent quality requirements. Whether one-off items or for series production, the parts can be made according to CAD designs, CAM technologies or actual drawings. Micromachining enables diameters of less than 1 mm to be achieved, whilst material quality and batch integrity are fully and traceably documented by the manufacturer.
Precious metal recycling, green and efficient:
C.HAFNER’s precious metal recycling division works to the highest standards of technology, both in terms of refining and environmental protection, and offers extremely fast turn-around times.
Accreditation as test laboratory:
C.HAFNER’s laboratories division analyses precious metal alloys for her material properties and impurities. C.HAFNER fulfils the requirements of the DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard, which includes not only the DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 quality standard but also a number of additional, more stringent requirements.
