Olive Wire

Modern Grinding manufactures custom and specialized olive wire for the medical community. We are a contract manufacturer which means we don't carry any products of our own, all products are built to customer specification.

Olive wire is not a commonly used surgical wire but we have worked on olive wire for a few medical OEMS. Olive wire is similar to K-Wire in design with the difference being olive wire has an olive shaped ball at the end of the wire.

Modern Grinding can weld olive, cone and ball shapes onto your olive wire. Olive Wire is similar to Knowles Pins in that they have an external "stop" on the wire. Please contact us for additional design options.
