Metal Wires

Fort Wayne Metals are the market leader for custom-drawn precision wire for medical and surgical products in the United States.
Whether you're looking for round wire or flat wire of any shape, strands or composites like DFT®, Titanium alloys or Nitinol, Fort Wayne Metals will custom draw the product you need.

Flat Wire:

Fort Wayne Metals uses two manufacturing techniques to yield different types of radius edged flat wire: rolled flat wire and drawn flat wire. Both products exhibit a smooth bright surface finish and tight size tolerances.

DFT® Wire:

DFT® wire is a metal-to-metal composite developed to combine the desired physical and mechanical attributes of two or more materials into a single wire or ribbon system. More info

Nitinol Wire:

Fort Wayne Metals manufactures wire products from various grades of Nickel-Titanium or Nitinol commonly used in medical applications. Nitinol combines two closely related unique characteristics: shape memory and superelasticity. more info

Round Wire:

Fort Wayne Metals uses two manufacturing techniques to yield different types of radius edged flat wire: rolled flat wire and drawn flat wire. Both products exhibit a smooth bright surface finish and tight size tolerances.

SLT® Wire:

SLT® wire combines excellent straightness and torqueability. The SLT wire process eliminates the need for mechanical straightening and heat treatments. More info

Bio Medical Coatings:

Fort Wayne Metals has the ability to provide a variety of coated wire and cable configurations comprising a biocompatible sheath, lubricious barrier, or other medical grade material of your choice. It is common for Fort Wayne Metals to work with bioconductors that require an isolated electrical signal. In these instances, selection of the appropriate dielectric material is critical. Our engineering team can assist with the selection and design of any coating configuration. Electrical insulation is just one of many reasons why coatings are applied for wire based medical applications. Other considerations may include: chemical isolation, lubricity, or surface preparation. Fort Wayne Metals is always open to exploring new coatings for a variety of medical applications.
