High magnetic induction materials for efficient, responsive medical equipment

Soft magnetic alloys for high-performance surgical tools, surgical robots, and medical ventilators

Better materials. Better patient outcomes.

Our soft magnetic alloys are the foundation for the industry's best surgical power tools, medical devices, implants, and surgical robots.

Doctor-tested stator and rotor laminations build high-torque, high-power e-motors that are lighter, more responsive, and generate less heat. Our products, expertise, and processes drive:

  • Design and operational innovations in orthopedics, cardiology, and medical equipment
  • Advancements in minimally invasive procedures
  • Improved patient satisfaction and healing

Carpenter Electrification soft magnetic alloys and stacks are available for high-volume production and are manufactured and tested to precise customer specifications in state-of-the-art facilities.

High power for compact, responsive surgical tools

Handheld Surgical Tools

The right tools for the job

In the operating room, every second and every incision counts. That's why advanced surgical power tools like bone saws and surgical drills are so important:

  • Lightweight, responsive tools allow the surgeon to work with precision
  • High-power tools facilitate cleaner, faster cutting and removal
  • Smaller, compact tools improve visibility of the surgical site

Our soft magnetic alloy and motor stack solutions enable high motor speeds with low vibration and noise. While creating higher torque and power, our materials have low core loss for lower heat generation and extended use in the operating theater.

Built to last

Electric submersible pumps are efficient, high-volume pumps that maximize the recovery of oil and gas reservoirs.

Stator and rotor stacks made with our best-in-class Hiperco® and Hypocore® alloys enable rigless deployment technologies that minimize pump replacement costs in offshore and remote locations.

  • Higher power density and torque
  •  Compact designs
  • More reliable performance

Compact Instruments to Enable Minimally Invasive Procedures

Surgical Robots

As the use of surgical robotic platforms expands they require increasingly small instrumentation as well as compact and responsive motors to enable minimally invasive procedures. Our soft magnetic alloys enable the design of smaller instrumentation and motors without compromising peak performance. Next-generation robotic systems can be designed to deliver the required performance in a small form-factor to reduce weight and create space savings within the operating theater.

Power and efficiency for compact, portable ventilators


Critical medical technology

Medical ventilators demand consistent, repeatable performance that readily synchronizes with the patient’s breathing effort.

Soft magnetic alloys with high induction are used in linear actuators for highly responsive supply line control valves to regulate inhalation and exhalation. Blowers are powered by ventilator motors that use stator and rotor stacks produced from high-permeability alloys. These high-speed motors are powerful, efficient, have low noise, and support compact, portable ventilator designs.



Joint Reconstruction
Orthopedic Joint Reconstruction

Orthopedic implants require not only biocompatibility, but also exceptional mechanical properties and corrosion resistance in intense physiological conditions over a long service life, requiring materials with exceptionally high abrasion (wear) and fatigue resistance.

Vascular Stents
Cardiovascular Stents

Our materials enable expandable stents with high elastic modulus, low recoil, thinner struts through strong tensile properties. Reducing strut thickness improves clinical performance and reduces stent size, enabling access to smaller vessels.

Abutments & Screws
Abutments & Screws

High-strength biocompatible materials resistant to corrosion and fracturing are essential for high-quality crowns, dental implants, and surgical instrumentation. Our materials have the necessary strength and low-nickel content for patients with metal sensitivities.

Missile Casings
Missile Casings

Our material solutions are used for the next generation of implantable surgical clips where elevated properties are required surgical clips and suture wire.
