PGS-100: Electrochemical Burr-Free Needle Point Grinder
The Tridex PGS-100 Burr-Free Electrochemical Point Grinding System is a fully programmable pointing and material handling system that easily integrates with the Tridex SG-1645 or SG-2060 ECG Grinders. Using ECG, the PGS-100 manufactures a wide variety of medical device points on tubing or solid wire, such as medical needles or K-wires burr-free. The PGS-100 is capable of handling a wide amount of workpieces providing high throughput for specialty pointing applications.
