Our Capabilities

  • Quality:
    • Our validated TiMIM process functions in an ISO-13485 certified environment utilizing a state of the art paperless document control system.
    • To meet the stringent purity requirements for implantable materials, our entire MIM processing line is dedicated exclusively to titanium materials.
  • Compounding:
    • At Praxis, we believe that capability begins at compounding. We manufacture our feedstock in-house to maintain full control of batching and compounding to ensure high quality and consistent feedstock. Every batch is tested and characterized to ensure material compliance.
  • Molding:
    • Our injection molding equipment is the most precise available with additional features to aid in processing and control. Molding is fully automated to guarantee quality.
  • Debinding and Sintering:
    • Praxis uses a proprietary debinding process for initial stage debinding. Secondary debinding and sintering is carried out in our dedicated TiMIM furnace. Our specialized furnace design was developed to provide a robust processing route for TiMIM.
  • Secondary operations:
    • Praxis has in-house CNC machining and surface finishing capabilities to aid in supplying finished parts. Additionally, we offer out-sourced services to meet your specific requirements.
  • Metrology:
    • Praxis’ metrology department is outfitted with vision measuring systems, CMM’s and profilometry equipment to ensure the quality of even your most complex parts.
