Surface Treatment and Passivation


• ASTM-A967 — Chemical passivation treatment of stainless steel parts

• ASTM-A380 — Cleaning, descaling, and passivation of stainless steel parts

• ASTM-B912 — Electrical Chemical passivation of stainless steel

• AMS-2700E — Aerospace specifications

• AMS QQ-P-35 — Nitric or Citric methods


• Finish razor edged tube

• Cleaning prior to passivation

• Surface finish less than 8 RMS

• Ultra sharp pointing of wire

• Bright, shiny finish


• Preparation for overmolding

• Visual location marking

• Improved finish for adhesion

• Surface finish from 30–320 Ra

• Very tight tolerances held on location

Burr-Free Cutting

Truly burr-free cuts are accomplished by the use of Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM). This process draws a spark from an anode to a part mounted to the cathode. In this way, the material of a wire or tube part is not cut away, but rather turned into a gas much like a plasma cutter but with great precision and repeatability.


• Straight, square ends, rounded ends and angled cuts.


• As little as .010” and as long as 10′ with a unique profile with repeatable accuracy of as little as .002”.

Unique profiles are easily cut into tubes of stainless steel, aluminum or any conductive material. Common uses for the process are medical devices and surgical tools, fiber optics, fluid transition or flushing coring devices, applicator needles, vascular introduction cannula, crimping sleeves, machine tools, biorobotics, operating room tools, biopsy stylets and cannulas, and automated system components.

Razor Edged Tubing

• Precision grinding of both inside and outside diameter of tubing up to 0.375”.

• Specialized grinders cut almost any angle on tube diameters producing razor-sharp ends.

• Grinding, combined with cyclical electropolishing creates a smooth finish.

• Tapers up to 3.50” long in multiple, precise locations.

• Steps or notches for overmolding or visible location.

• Flats for locating or clocking to other features.

Micro-Tube Machining

• Slots running longitudinally or radially along tubes or wires.

• Holes down to 0.002” precisely located on the part.

• Features of any kind made to your print.
