Orthodontic Brackets

AMETEK Specialty Metal Products has been a leader in the development of shaped wire products for use in orthodontic brackets for more than 20 years. Whether orthodontic materials are needed for a new design process to increase torque strength in orthodontic brackets, or support for a highly customized next generation project, our engineers are ready to work with you to ensure success.
Advantages
As a world class metal wire manufacturer, we deliver custom wire shapes, custom wire alloys and precise sizes. Our shaped wire products deliver major advantages for the manufacture of near net shape orthodontic brackets. These include:
  • Superior dimensional control for precision bracket geometries that reduce occlusal interference and improve patient comfort
  • Tightly controlled alloy purity, consistency and composition for improved performance
  • Improved die wear, formability and platability
  • Highly customized materials enable increased torque strength
  • Biocompatible, lightweight and corrosion resistant alloys
Alloys
We supply materials for metal ortho brackets in a range of high performance, corrosion resistant and lightweight alloys including:
  • Stainless steel wire
  • Copper wire
  • Aluminium wire
  • Nickel alloy and nickel-iron wire
  • Carbon steel wire
In addition to standard alloys, our metallurgists can work alongside you to develop custom product specifications.
Sizes
As a leading orthodontic bracket manufacturer, we engineer shaped wire down to 0.005” (0.127mm) dependent on shapes and materials. In many cases where a new design is not necessary, we can offer standard off-the-shelf products with quicker lead-times and lower cost.
