Cold Drawn Stainless Steel Orthopedic Rods for the Medical Industry

REQUEST QUOTE Cold Drawn Stainless Steel Orthopedic Rods for the Medical Industry

Our expertise with cold working a variety of alloys led to Rathbone Precision Metals, Inc. being awarded a contract to produce this Orthopedic Rod for use in a demanding medical application. We devised a single tool set that permitted us to cold draw either 455 or 304 Stainless to the customer’s tensile and yield strength requirements necessary for this medical application.

These .300″ diameter rods, with .20″ root diameters, were drawn to a smooth 63 Ra surface finish and cut to precise 6.599″ to 6.638″ lengths, all within ±.0015″ tolerances. Our ability to precisely adjust the material properties during the cold draw process was critical to the success of this project.
