Delacroix-Chevalier and Landanger instruments are made to the highest standards of
design and craftsmanship to provide the very best instruments available. Every instrument
is hand finished by highly skilled craftsmen– no machine can make the precise adjustments
to ensure that every instrument is perfectly balanced, aligned and honed to the exacting
Laser DataMatrix Marking – Landanger have pioneered the application of a unique Laser
engraved EAN128 compliant 2D barcode to each individual instrument to enable full
traceability of the instrument throughout its life. Landanger were the first company
to master this difficult technique over 5 years ago and are still the leaders in
its application. Very few, if any, other companies offer this and those that do are
not able to offer the same level of detailed information in the barcode.
Why are these instruments so good?
Raw material – Delacroix-Chevalier only use the best German or French Stainless Steel
alloys which have the correct chemical composition for the category of instrument.
For example, scissors are made from an alloy that has a higher carbon content than
the steel used for forceps to give a harder edge, whilst the steel using in forceps
or clamps needs subtly more ductility. Many instruments are also available in Titanium.
Skilled Craftsmen – every instrument is finished by hand by a team of highly skilled
craftsmen who are able to bring their years of experience to bear on each instrument
to ensure it is perfect before leaving the factory.
Individual calibration - all instruments are individually tested for correct performance
according to their design specifications- for such things ranging from the closing
pressure for clamps or forceps to the hardness of a scissor blade
Heat Treatment – during the production process the quenching and tempering of the
steel is carried out to rigorous standards to ensure the right temperature gradients
are achieved every time to deliver the correct material properties in the finished
