“The only automated

system that improves the results of hand polishing”.

DLyte is a disruptive solution for surface finishing in the medical device industry. DLyte system innovates to improve the manufacturing process, reducing error-prone, decreasing costs and shortening lead times.

 

DLyte machines also allow to manufacture in an automated process. DLyte supposes a substantial improvement of quality and lifespan of medical implants responding to a demand given today’s longevity in our society.

Cobalt chrome,
stainless steel,
titanium and nitinol

DLyte offers a high-quality finishing for cobalt chrome, stainless steel, titanium and nitinol for the healthcare industry. Available for all types of implants, needles, stents, medical devices and components of medical equipment which require ultra-clean surfaces. 

Non abrasive polishing

DLyte is the first non abrasive surface finishing system able to reduce substantially the roughness. Being a non abrasive process allows to reduce the rougness keeping the initial shapes and respecting the tolerances.

Mirror finishing
in one step

Fully automated polishing to a mirror finish in one step. Mechanical surface finishing requires several steps to achieve mirror finishing and liquid electropolishing  generally reduces surface roughness readings of a non-electropolished surface by only 50%.

Precise, safe and long-lasting implants

DLyte system based on dry electropolishing address the main needs of the implant industry such as shape and tolerances preservation, biocompatibility, corrosion resistance enhance, automation and reduction of complexity of current manual and multistep processes, high output with a very compact equipment, no dust and waste emissions, no need of peripheral water recycling equipment,  clean and non-hazardous process and applicable for fragile parts.

Enhance corrosion resistance

DLyte is the unique system able to remove roughness and improve the corrosion resistance of the metal pieces at the same time reducing the number of processes required in the manufacturing process.

“DLyte achieves better

corrosion resistance than

liquid electropolishing”.

Corrosion is one of the main factors reducing the lifespan of implanted parts. Most applications require a surface treatment to be performed after polishing to comply with the corrosion resistance requirements of the medical device industry.

DLyte is the unique system able to remove roughness substantially and improve the corrosion resistance of the metal pieces at the same time reducing the number of processes required in the manufacturing process.

DLyte achieves better corrosion resistance than liquid electropolishing. The dry electropolished sample analyzed has lower surface roughness and more luster than liquid electropolished sample

Proved biocompatibility 

The Medical device sectors require clinically proven processes and products which guarantee their compliance with the most demanding safety regulations.

The manufacturer must ensure that the devices meet all appropriate requirements and in particular perform a risk/ benefit analysis and evaluate the biocompatibility and toxicity of the materials used. 

Fragile parts finishing

Small medical devices like stents or needles require high quality surface finishing with the disadvantage of requiring a non-aggressive process to avoid damages caused by mechanical energy. DLyte is suitable for these applications as is an electro-chemical process.

 

Compared with the liquid electropolishing DLyte is more controllable and works efficiently at micro and macroscopic level. 

Additive manufacturing implants

DLyte is also suitable for metal additive manufacturing implants performing superior results than existing surface finsihing technologies. 

“DLyte performs at least two times better surface quality than the next-best alternative between the 7 most relevant post-processing technologies”. 

Time saving and lower cost production

An automatic process which reduces the complexity of the current multi-step processes, reducing labor costs and eliminating the need to rework parts and the production of defective parts.

Easy waste management
and low waste and
water consumption 

DLyte system does not require closed-up system to recycle water and sludge waste treatment machinery with the corresponding space, labor, water and environmental license costs savings. The disposal of the dry electrolyte is handled by Standard services.

Improvement of the working environment

The DLyte process does not require any rubber tip, electrolytic bathing or brushing, but simply an abrasive preparation beforehand. By reducing the traditional multi-step process, DLyte improves working conditions, and drastically reduces the toxicity of the current polishing.
