Hermetic Welding and Testing

Hermetically sealing sensitive electronics and medical device components against body fluids is critical to the safety and reliability of an implantable medical device. With such variables as the materials being used, quality of the sealing process, use environment, design of the hermetic seal and more, experience and quality are the keys to a long-lasting seal. And as medical devices become more complex and are expected to perform better for longer, there is no substitute for knowledge and experience. Combining glove box technology, vacuum ovens, advanced materials science and decades of engineering expertise, Cirtec is a leading fabricator of hermetically sealed implantable medical devices.

From techniques to materials, Cirtec offers a wide array of hermetic sealing options to satisfy the needs of our customers and most importantly deliver years of trouble-free operation to patients. From compressed gaskets to fusion welds, our processes have been honed to deliver reliable and long-lasting seals for any application.

Leak Testing and Optimization

Due to varying materials, manufacturing requirements and time, no seal remains hermetic forever. Cirtec therefore prides itself on the unique expertise in testing hermetic leak rates. With our help, you can target and ensure an optimized leak rate for even the most compact device architectures
