SECONDARY OPERATIONS

Wytech provides for both wire and tubing a host of value-added secondary operations to complement its core machining operations. This all-inclusive, under-one-roof platform eliminates much of the time and cost wasted when working with multiple vendors.

End Treatments

  • Eliminates burrs, avoids puncture, and provides easier insertion
  • Full spherical end-rounding
  • Deburr
  • Radius
  • Square cut
  • Rounding
  • For both wire and tubing applications

Nitinol Shape Setting

  • Shape and heatset can be provided for both superelastic and as-drawn

Electrochemical Machining

ECM is a technology utilized by Wytech for removing metal by an electrochemical process creating a burr-free finish. It is normally used for working with extremely hard materials or materials that are difficult to machine using conventional methods. Its use is limited to electrically conductive materials.

  • Ideal for ultra-sharp points, edge rounding, rounded points, bevel points, needle points, razor edges on tubing, tube edge radius features, coil tips, and more
  • Best suited for high-volume jobs

Grit Blasting

  • Masking tolerances as low as +/- 0.01″
  • 360° coverage if required

Aluminum Oxide

  • Allows surface transformation, attachment for over-mold or adhesion
  • Any grit size available can be used
  • Entire parts, ends, or masked discrete lengths
  • For both wire or tube applications

 Glass Bead

  • Any grit size can be used
  • Allows uniform look for parts
  • Aesthetically pleasing; better tactile feel

Silicone Carbide

  • Wear resistant, chemical inertness, high thermal conductivity, abrasion resistance, and low coefficient of thermal expansion

Chemical Etching/Echogenic Surfaces

  • Anti-core capabilities
