Nitinol Grinding

Modern Grinding specializes in small wire nitinol grinding. Some of the types of nitinol products that we create out of nitinol wire include nitinol springs, nitinol core wires, nitinol clamps, archwire, tapered wire and nitinol guidewires. Nitinol is a metal alloy based on a roughly equal combination of Nickel and Titanium. The unique properties of nitinol are it's shape memory and its superelasticity.

Specialized Grinding

Nitinol grinding is not a manufacturing process that any job shop can do. Nitinol material is very abrasive which causes a large amount of heat during the grinding process. Grinding nitinol requires specialized wheel coatings and coolant. Modern Grinding has a lot of experience with nitinol and can help provide the best solution for your nitinol designs.
