Our products

Product category: Catheters, cardiac

β titanium pipe is laser processed and a wire guide ring is welded together

Material β Titanium pipe φ2.9×φ2.7
Example of adoption(Industry) Parts of a endoscope
Reason of adoption Super elasticity Ni-Ti(Nitinol, nickel-titanium) is required, but Ni-Ti is hard to be welded. Therefore, β titanium, which can be laser welded with a part having similar characteristics to Ni-Ti, is adopted.

DraCo ®(Patented-Japan:No.5710079/Germany:No.11 2014 001 237.8)

These are single hole type forceps for laparoscope surgery using the technologies of βtitanium pipe. The forceps has three bend section to adjust the angle and the top holding parts rotate.

Product category: Catheters, cardiac


This is the laser processing for a stent which is used in catheterization of angina pectoris and myocardial infarction.The minimum cutting width of the laser processing is 20μm.
Thus, a complex fine shape that is impossible to process by an ordinary cutting method can be processed by the laser processing.

Spiral pipe

A spiral groove is cut on βtitanium pipe made by FUTA-Q, Ltd., which is anti-corrosive, strong, elastic, and light, by the laser micro processing technology that is used for stent processing.

“β titanium spiral pipe” achieved flexible maneuverability that has never been provided before. Adjusting the slit width and the pitch controls its flexibility and springness in each section.

Other than β titanium described above, depending on applications, stainless steel and NiTi can be processed.

Micro forceps

Utilizing our cutting technology, we succeeded in making small forceps for medical urgery use by cutting out titanium monoblock, which is hard to be processed. The very small size, the shaft diameter 0.3 mm and the tip section 1.0 mm, enables accurate operation with corrosive resistivity of titanium and improved accuracy.

Tube Catcher (patented-Japan: No.5639734)

When taking cryovials, used for culturing and storing organisms, in and out from a refrigeration storage container, a pair of tweezers have generally been used by researchers. When researching, they are required to wear gloves which make them clumsy and they tend to drop the tubes easily. In addition, it is very difficult for them to move tubes in liquid nitrogen with a pair of tweezers.

In order to improve such conditions, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency(a.k.a JAXA) asked FUTA・Q to create an equipment which makes them easy and comfortable to handle tubes and vials even in liquid nitrogen when researching about cell division in outer space.

Then, by trial and error, a βtitanium tube catcher was born. The characteristics of βtitanium alloy makes the equipment hyperplastic and resistant in cryocondition. It can maintain its durability and elasticity even in liquid nitrogen. The tube catcher holds a tube tightly, and makes researchers easy to handle vials and tubes dexterously even when wearing gloves.
