Area of expertise

Fatigue of components and structures

Le Cetim au service du biomédical

 Complete service for the biomedical industry - From design to validation


 You would like to:

  • Develop your innovative products to meet the needs of the market
  • Characterise your parts or process with a view to optimising them
  • Validate the performance of your implants as part of particular experimental references or standards.

High-performing environment for following the development of your medical devices, with skills in the following areas:

  • Standard processes: forge, machining, shaping by distortion, etc.
  • Innovative processes: high speed powder compacting, additive processes, etc.
  • Materials: help in the choice of metals, plastics, composites, etc.
  • Simulation (use of the leading major market codes).
  • Mechatronics (development of a special sensor, functionalisation of your product).




Customised expertise for medical devices:
