  • Centerless Wire Grinding: This provides wire grinding for applications that include guide wires, core wires, and mandrels. Appropriate grinding is required for wire used in these devices, to ensure that the wire is tapered to be optimally stiff, yet flexible, throughout the length of the medical device.
  • OD Wire Grinding: Generally speaking, this sort of wire grinding is used for threads, points, and customized profiles such as notches, grooves, steps, bumps, and flats.
