Custom Implantable Flat Sheet Solutions for Medical Applications
This is one of the most basic shape options we offer but even a cloth can be made with an incredible variety of features and from a wide variety of starting materials. In its simplest form, a flat sheet can be knit, woven, or nonwoven with the same fiber pattern throughout. We can also fabricate these into smaller or more complex cut components so you don’t have to. We manufacture custom die cut or laser cut components or cutouts to the exact dimensions required using one of the many cutting technologies we have in house. We also offer cutting on the bias to further optimize the features of a flat sheet. However, it is also possible to vary the structure within a sheet or panel to create regions that offer denser or more open pores thereby increasing or decreasing stretch ability. We may often get caught up in the length and width here as a primary dimension but let’s not forget the 3rd dimension…Thickness! When it comes to ultra-thin materials you have come to the right place. Flat sheets can be as thin as 40um but also exceed 2000um for some applications. It is also possible to create patterns, windows and pockets within the fabric to impart additional functionality. Our engineers can further customize the sheet by adding colored indicator lines or markers. The possibilities are endless!
