implantable device manufacturers with biocompatible technical ceramic
C5 Medical Werks began as an entity in October, 2005 and has since worked to
ensure all aspects of their operation are optimized for the special requirements of
implant manufacturers. After substantial investment in staff, facility, equipment,
and quality systems, the company is ready for business and, in fact, currently
serves several customers. Their clean manufacturing environment houses the
latest multi-axis CNC machining, turning, and finishing equipment, dry and
isostatic presses, extruders, ceramic injection molders, and inspection
equipment. They recently received certification to ISO-13485 by registrar BSI.
“We’ve made a substantial investment to ensure our operations compete on a
global level,” stated C5 Medical Werks President, Brad Coors. “We fully expect to
be the market leader in our chosen niche,” continued Coors. Drawing from
CoorsTek’s nearly 100 years of experience in technical ceramics, C5 Medical
Werks believes it is well suited to meet an emerging demand for long-term wear
solutions in implantable components.
From prototyping to full-scale production, C5 Medical Werks serves medical
implant design engineers with a full complement of manufacturing equipment,
specially formulated ceramic materials, and a comprehensive quality system.
