Modern Grinding can manufacture flat tip profiles into the end of a guidewire, core wire or mandrel. We also offer laser welding services for flat tip guidewire prototyping. Along with flat tip guidewires, we can manufacture radius tip guidewires, ball tip guidewires and ball tip guidewires. Basically any type of guide wire profile that you can imagine, we can create.
The process for flat tip guidewire begins with a round wire. We then grind flats on two sides of the wire, thus creating a flat end. The flat end leaves less material and greater flexibility for the guide wire as a whole. We have the capability to grind from .125" down to .001" and we can create flat tips to achieve optimal levels of guidewire navigation. Modern Grinding also has microcoiling and coiling services and clean room guide wire assembly to be a full service guidewire manufacturing source. Call us today for help with your next project.
