Truly burr-free cuts are accomplished by the use of Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM). This process draws a spark from an anode to a part mounted to the cathode In this way, the material of a wire or tube part is not cut away, but rather turned into a gas much like a plasma cutter but with great precision and repeatability.
- PARTS CAN BE CUT TO VARIOUS SHAPES:
- TUBE OR WIRE CAN BE CUT TO EXACTING LENGTHS:
- Straight, square ends,
Rounded ends and Angled cuts
- of as little as .010″ and as long as 10′ unique profile with repeatable accuracy of as little as .002″
Unique profiles are easily cut into tubes of stainless steel, aluminum or any conductive material. Common uses for the process are medical devices and surgical tools, fiber optics, fluid transition or flushing coring devices, applicator needles, vascular introduction cannula, crimping sleeves, machine tools, bio-robotics, operating room tools, biopsy stylets and cannulas, and automated system components.
