Whether x-ray shielding, implants or small surgical equipment, medical engineering depends on nickel iron, cobalt iron and maraging stainless steel.
Soft NiFe magnetic alloys with very high permeability and low coercivity are the natural choice for scanners and x-ray equipment.

Not only do maraging steels comply with the highest standards for surgical implants, their corrosion resistance, high-yield strength and non-magnetic properties make them the perfect alloys for this application.
