These products are used for a variety of applications in the medical industry where tight tolerance and precision winding are critical. At Micro-Tek, we manufacture these products to various tensile specifications using premium alloys that feature uniform mechanical properties.

For these products, 304 VMSS and 316SS wire are typically used due to their physical properties and high purity. Other alloys can be specified.

Standard tolerances for flat wire products are ±10% for the width and thickness; when indicated, the critical dimension tolerance can be held as tight as ±0.0001”. Round wire OD tolerance is ±0.0001”. Micro-Tek also offers multi-end round wire configurations.

Comprehensive testing is performed to verify tensile strength and elongation.

Customers can specify winding tension, lengths per bobbin and color coding.

At Micro-Tek, we have the capability to manufacture over 4 million feet per month, and we have been doing so for over 30 years. Considering the fact that this flat wire is used worldwide, our medical industry customers take great comfort in the knowledge that both the size of the order and ranges of roundness or flatness are completely customizable with a blanket order.
