Posted in Manufacturing & Prototyping, Products, MDB on Tuesday, May 01 2012Teleflex Medical OEM (Kenosha, WI) has launched a high-performance rod cutter specifically designed to handle extremely strong cobalt chromium (CoCr) and titanium rods. Performance tests indicate the durable rod cutter can cut cobalt chromium rods more than 500 times with minimal raised burrs or edges. The cutter features a guide for easy insertion and proper positioning of a rod in the cutting hole, and extendable arms that lock in place for increased leverage and reduced operation efforts. The rod cutter can be custom configured with up to four different holes on the cutting head: 3.0 mm to 6.0 mm (in ½ mm increments) plus 6.35 mm. A sturdy base is available for tabletop use.
