Custom, ceramic casings (or housings) protect the electronics within active implantable medical devices and ensure that no compounds from the device leak into the patient’s body. At SCT Ceramics, we leverage our 50 years of experience in brazing ceramic to metal to provide high-quality, custom solutions. We work with clients whose products require atypical casing forms, such as tube and cube, or miniaturized casings.
Ceramic housings offer many advantages. The chemical makeup of advanced technical ceramics allows for RF signals to pass through the device, making it compatible with devices that transmit patient and device performance data wirelessly. Another advantage of ceramic casings is their compatibility with wireless power transfer in order to meet the demand for rechargeable batteries.
