SLT® wire

El alambre SLT® de Fort Wayne Metals ha sido diseñado específicamente para reducir los pasos de producción en su operación. Ya sea que solo necesite alambre básico que elimine la necesidad de enderezado y reducir el tiempo de inactividad de la máquina, un alambre enderezado de primera calidad que no se deforme durante el rectificado cónico profundo o cualquier otro proceso intermedio, el uso del alambre SLT® ayudará a agilizar su proceso de producción.

Aumente la eficiencia con el alambre SLT®.

We will provide Type 4 SLT® wire cut to length according to your specifications, straight, and ready for grinding. And since Type 4 SLT® wire will stay straight even after removing as much as 95 % of the cross-sectional area, you won’t even need to heat treat it. For more information, contact your Fort Wayne Metals Representative.

Tipo 1

Type 1 SLT® wire eliminates manufacturing process steps, reduces set-up time, and may eliminate the need for additional equipment. Typically used for staple wire, braiding mandrels, and dental probes, this ready-to-use product reduces setup time and eliminates the need to straighten before additional processes. Now you can streamline your process to get your product out the door faster without compromising quality.

Straightness variance 25.4 mm per 304.8 mm [1.00 in per 12.00 in]

Packing specifications Wire on a spool

Minimum hub size 220x wire diameter

Tipo 2

Type 2 SLT® wire significantly reduces process time by eliminating the need for mechanical straightening. This wire comes to you free of rotary marks, providing customer-ready surface. With no need to adjust for cast or helix in secondary processing, Type 2 SLT® wire has been used for mandrel wire, needle and staple wire, stylet wire, point coiling, and micro needle applications.

Straightness variance 2.997 mm per 304.8 mm [0.118 in per 12.00 in]

Especificaciones de embalaje: Alambre en un carrete o cortado a la longitud deseada.

Minimum hub size 300x wire diameter

Tipo 3

Type 3 SLT® wire eliminates the need to straighten. In spring and hard conditions, this material is designed for removing up to 90% cross-sectional area by taper grinding without requiring heat treatment. Typical applications for Type 3 SLT® wire range from micro-needles, orthodontics and suture needles, to guide wires, endoscopes, and embolic filters.

Cumple con las normas ASTM F2819

Straightness variance 0.508 mm per 304.8 mm [0.02 in per 12.00 in]

Especificaciones de embalaje Alambre en carrete o cortado a la medida.

Minimum hub size 400x wire diameter

Tipo 4

Our premier SLT® wire features excellent 1:1 torque response, which makes it a popular choice for neurovascular guide wire, steerable PTCA, endoscopes, and other precision applications. Type 4 SLT® wire is designed for removing in excess of 95% of cross-sectional area by taper grinding without rippling or pigtailing. Not straightening or additional heat treatment is required, regardless of condition. This superior grindability and kink resistance means this SLT® wire is often chosen for the most demanding applications.
