Kurt Schenk and Neal Hanke attended a one day seminar about Nitinol and how its unique properties apply to medical devices and designs. The primary topics for the seminar included structure, processing, mechanical properties, corrosion behavior, and fatigue life of Nitinol. MEE has been helping medical device manufacturers to successfully use Nitinol in their products for almost 25 years. Even with years of experience, MEE staff continually seeks out educational opportunities to keep up with the latest research on this intriguing material.
Medical device development calls for innovation, precision and critical thinking – MEE matches your requirements with advanced materials characterization, analytical methods and experienced and informed materials strategies.
Look for us in the exhibit hall of the upcoming MD&M event November 8-9 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Materials Evaluation and Engineering staff will be there to meet and greet and answer any questions you might have about our services.
We will be at Booth #1304 (first booth if you enter through the central doors of the exhibit hall.)
Materials Evaluation and Engineering, Inc. has added testing to ASTM standard F2082 to its list of laboratory services. This test provides a rapid and economical method for the determination of transformation temperature for Nickel-Titanium shape memory alloy, also known as Nitinol.
Nitinol’s unique shape-memory and superelastic properties lends itself to a wide variety of uses in medical and industrial fields. Results from the test determining the temperature when phase change occurs provide data applicable to the ultimate use and performance of the material.

It was a fun couple of days in the Exhibit hall of MD&M. Thanks to all who stopped by to talk with us.
We enjoyed the opportunity to talk about our laboratory and engineering services for those in the medical device industry. Almost everyone on staff had a chance to spend some time at the MEE booth and also some time strolling around the exhibit hall to see what was new. This was MEE’s 16th year with a booth at MD&M.
You’ve seen our pictures on the website, maybe talked to us on the phone or exchanged emails with us. This week is your chance to meet us in person. Stop by the MEE booth (815) at MD&M this week ,November 4-5, in the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Already an MEE client? It’s always fun to see some familiar faces in the crowd so be sure to stop by and say hello.
