Raw material

FAICO was the first argentine manufacturer of surgical instruments to transform each piece into a unique one by stamping system.

All our production line of cutting instruments with hardened edges uses stainless steel- characteristic AISI 420 forged in a unique hardened piece, which allows an accurate functioning either for elasticity or durability of cutting edges. All instruments without hardened edges are made of stainless steel-characteristic AISI 410 forged in only one hardened piece. Boxes, separators, blades, and other elements are manufactured in stainless steel-characteristic AISI 304 forged in only one piece.

The finishing of our surgical instruments has matte finishing achieved through advanced techniques of electro polishing system. This process avoids the reflex in the surgical field and obtains a better vision of the deep fields.
