PGS-100 Tridex Technology Burr Free Electrochemical Point Grinding System

The Glebar Advantage

The PGS-100 is a fully programmable pointing and material handling system to manufacture a wide variety of medical device points on tubing or solid wire using electrochemical grinding technology (ECG). When added to the Tridex Model SG-1645 or SG-2060 electrochemical grinders, it offers very fast set-up times and can be changed over from one size to another in only minutes. It also facilitates secondary operations such as electro-polishing, bead blasting, slotting, etc. without losing point orientation. Unlike traditional point grinders it requires no adhesive tape and has the capacity to handle a 100mm (4.0 inches) width of workpieces so it has high throughput for specialty pointing applications.
