The TG-12x4 or TG-12x8 Servo cycle machines are the next step up in the evolution of guidewire discussions.
Where the decision comes to upgrade to this type of machine is when you:
- Have tapers greater than 4” long
- Want to do up to 5 tapers
- Are looking for a machine that can do a lot of different types of parts, not just wires. Applications include TF NiTi tubing, catheters, dilator tips, platinum electrodes, etc… All can be done on the same machine.
Material is not a concern for this type of equipment, Grind Stainless Steel, NiTi, plastics or any exotic metal without difficulty.
|This method of grinding is utilized when the taper length is less than the wheel width. In the case of the TG-12x4 it is 4” (100mm). For the TG-12x8 it is 8” (200mm) wide. It is a very simple method of grinding, and when using the right method of loading.|
