At ATEX Technologies, we work with a myriad of materials sourced specifically from suppliers who support the medical device industry with the same level of care that we expect of ourselves. This attention to detail and “total systems view” of supply chain inputs allows ATEX to minimize the risk associated with outsourced materials, contributing to greater peace of mind for our customers. We invest heavily in all development and manufacturing inputs knowing that delivering perfectly engineered components requires operational excellence at all stages in the process. In addition, ATEX goes a step further by ensuring that it is fully vertically integrated with respect to our most prominent material, PET (polyester). With our state-of-the-art extrusion process we can provide complete traceability from polymer chip through final component as well as ultimate control over fiber and yarn characteristics and performance.
Yarn Extrusion and Processing
ATEX extrudes its own PET fiber along with many other thermoplastic polymers in house, customizing it to meet your design requirements. We can control the properties of the yarn, and ultimately the component, by expertly man aging the entire process ensuring performance and uniformity. WE EVEN HAVE A MASTER FILE ON OUR PET MATERIAL.
ATEX has years of experience BRAIDING, WEAVING, KNITTING and created NON-WOVENS but that is JUST THE BEGINNING. It is our unique understanding of how to manipulate and optimize these technologies that produces great results. PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT IS UTILIZED FOR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES SO THERE ARE NO SCALE UP ISSUES!
OUR EXPERTISE GOES FAR BEYOND OUR CORE TECHNOLOGIES. We can finish, form, mark, coat and dye the structures we manufacture to further optimize performance and provide an edge over the competition.
