Stainless spring wire (nickel-plated wire) simplifies the manufacturing of springs because there is no need for additional coating prior to coiling, nor any need for pre-treatment before heat treatment. Nickel coating ensures that springs retain the same bright, consistent finish after heat treatment. Related company: Sumiden Wire Products Corporation
Stainless medical wire in a variety of grades can be custom-manufactured for many different medical uses: wire-reinforced catheters, guidewires for catheters, surgical staples, surgical sutures, endoscopic instruments, orthodontic arch wires, and more.
