About




Memry is a global leader in the invention and development of nitinol alloys and other superelastic and shape memory alloys, and the manufacture of nitinol semi-finished forms and fabricated components. With "melt to market" capabilities under one company roof, we provide customers in the medical device and industrial industries the opportunity to partner with us on one or all aspects of their component design. As we have fine-tuned the unique properties of nitinol over many years, we have become a true knowledge company, developing solutions in active collaboration with customers.

Memry has more than 25 years of recognized leadership in development of superelastic and shape memory alloys, as well as the production of nitinol as raw material, semi-finished forms (wire, sheet, strip and tubing) and fabricated components such as wire stents, laser cut components and micro-coils. Memry provides nitinol melting, a complete range of nitinol component fabrication and finishing, and engineer-to-engineer support at the prototyping stage. The company's "melt to market" approach means in-house control of products and services from start to finish, with faster process improvements, reduced cycle times and greater flexibility in the face of design and manufacturing challenges.

Memry is a world leader in medical and industrial applications requiring nitinol alloys and complex manufacturing processes. With decades of steadily increasing competency in nitinol vacuum metallurgy, we partner with our customers developing advanced materials and providing design assistance for components utilizing nitinol.

Medical markets
