Burr-free cutting, grinding, and polishing is for small-diameter metal tubes, wires, and rods. Length and diameter tolerances are in the microns, parallelism and flatness are less then a micron, squareness is in the minutes, and surface finishes are as smooth as 1 microinch. All metals, including stainless steels; cobolt alloys; NiTi; and pure titanium, precious, and refractory metals are processed for medical device, automotive component, semiconductor, and electronic applications.
