Morgan Advanced Materials makes ceramic components used in medical instrumentation for monitoring and diagnostics and tools for treatment and surgery, including specialised ceramic assemblies for implantable devices and orthopaedic replacement ceramic joints.
Our high quality ceramics can be found in surgical instrumentation, therapeutic and diagnostic equipment and are favoured by equipment manufacturers and medical professionals for their exceptional physical characteristics.
Our advanced carbon fibre composites are used as a strong, lightweight structural frames for an advanced technology X-ray treatment couch used in oncology and our graphite material is used in the case and graphite layer of a sophisticated ultrasonic diagnostic probe. We have also developed a range of highly engineered, ultra thin components to enable more accurate, higher resolution and reliable ultrasound imagery.
The group’s broad medical engineering expertise encompasses ceramic orthopaedic joint replacements, precision engineered ceramic parts for cancer treatment, blood and cellular analysis systems, along with specialised ceramic-to-metal assemblies for implantable devices such as pacemakers, speech valves, cochlear implants, defibrillators and neurostimulators.
Our piezoelectric components are used extensively in medical ultrasound applications and in pumps for drug delivery and our superior materials enable design of high-efficiency medical tools such as ultrasonic dental descalers, ultrasonic scalpels and tumour ablation tips.
We offer applications engineering expertise and specialist manufacturing facilities to aid the evolution of key components in instrumentation and diagnostic equipment such as ultrasonic imaging, X-ray, CAT and MRI scanners. Our superior piezoelectric ceramic components are used extensively in medical ultrasound to enable increased image resolution, while our non-magnetic, temperature stable dielectric materials are being used more extensively in next generation MRI systems.
Silicon carbide and carbon are used in advanced oxygen concentration units that provide relief to patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. Our components are part of a rotary valve that extracts more than 95% pure oxygen from the environment.
Our electrical rotary transfer products are used widely in medical analysis equipment from endoscopes to CCT and MRI scanners. Our miniature rotary distributors ensure consistent quality illumination in overhead lamps in operating rooms, regardless of the lamp orientation.
