Challenge: To eliminate additional processes in the production of guidewires. The conventional process uses several machines to profile a shape in an interventional guidewire.


Glebar eliminated pre- and post- processes by incorporating them on a CAM.2 machine in one operation. Wire can be supplied in cut form or can be loaded on the machine on a spool. Automation on the machine measures and cuts the wire to length, when supplied from a spool, corrects any inaccuracies automatically, grinds both distal and proximal shapes, then cuts the wire to final length, allowing for a one-machine, hands-off solution. Note: Glebar has sold hundreds of guidewire machines and has consistently met the production needs of some of the largest medical companies in the world.



Micro Grinding Machines



The CAM.2 combines the latest in multi-axis servo motor control, submicron positioning, and an intuitive HMI touchscreen interface to offer unmatched performance in grinding medical guidewires, dental parts, and small complexed precision parts for various industries.
