■Core Competence

ASAHI INTECC has established our total production system with unique four core technologies: the high precision “wire drawing technology”, the “wire forming technology” to provide strength and flexibility, the “torque technology” to enhance torqueability and maneuverability, and the “coating technology” to realize optimal slip performance.
With these technologies, we provide products that are used in PCI treatments and have contributed to the diffusion of non-invasive treatment that minimizes patient burden, without depending on surgery.
ASAHI INTECC has succeeded as a first domestic company to produce PTCA guidewires, holding over 40% of the domestic market share in 2008.
