We manufacture custom-designed wire mandrels and wire stylets, typically made with nitinol and stainless steel. If you have a specialty wire request let us know and we will see if we can help. Diameters can range from 0.032″ to 0.188″. Our mandrels are manufactured for a variety of industries with very tight tolerances and precisely to our customer’s specifications. Our advanced CNC machinery and a large variety of stock materials enables fast turnaround on small prototypes as well as large production orders.
Of the products that we manufacture, mandrels tend to have the most unique design requests including tapers, steps, radii, flats, D-shaped, and coated. CWT can grind mandrels with multiple taper levels to meet your specs, including constant and multi-angle tapers.
We also manufacture mandrels for our coiling operations. This allows us to create coils with varying ODs and IDs along the length of the same part. It’s vertical integration that helps CWT deliver quality products fast.
We have built twisted wire stylets and precision ground core wire stylets. Materials most commonly used are stainless steel and nitinol but we have worked with a variety of other materials.
