A radius tip is a full round half circle at the tip of a wire. Most of the K-Wires that we manufacture either have a trocar tip on the distal end and a radius tip or a blunt tip with broken edges on the proximal end. Some of the K-Wires we product have a double radius tip.
We can manufacture radius tips with threads or additional profile options such as a flats or tapers along the length of the wire. The wire we typically use is nitinol or stainless steel but we can work with a variety of materials to suit your needs.
Modern Grinding is able to produce radius tips in production or prototype quantities.
