Steinmann Pin

steinmann pin

The Steinmann Pin is a metal rod for the internal fixation of fractures commonly used in orthopedic surgery. It is similar to K-Wire but with larger diameters. Modern Grinding can custom manufacture Steinmann Pins to your preference.

Custom Steinmann Pins

Processes we have performed on Steinmann Pins includes (but is not limited to) laser marking, passivation, deburring, tip grinding, and custom thread grinding. We are able to manufacture custom thread lengths and tip geometries including diamond tips, trocar tips and tips with angles outside of the standard 15 degrees. We typically manufacture stainless steel Steinmann Pins but we can also do nitinol.

Steinmann Pin Sizes

Modern Grinding can customize wires from 1.6mm up to 4.8mm with lengths of up to 24 inches. See the table below for additional steinmann pin sizes:

Steinmann Pin Uses

Modern Grinding Steinmann Pins have been used for the medical device industry and the veterinary industry. They are commonly also referred to as intramedullary pins, the term is interchangeable. These types of pins are typically used to hold large bone fractures in place.
