Medical OEM Product Information

Torque transmission wire

ASAHI INTECC. Uses its proprietary torque technology to fabricate the wire rope with high torque performance. These torque ropes are capable of transmitting the torque applied at the proximal end to the distal tip at a ratio close to 1:1 even in curved environments. Integrated in-house production provides ASAHI INTECC with the flexibility to handle different requirements for wire diameter, stranding structure and stranding direction.
The rope surface can be PTFE coated if surface lubricity is required.


 Stainless Steel 4 to 6 Layer Flexible Drive Cable


Asahi Intecc offers high speed rotation stainless steel miniature drive cables for devices, instruments, and mechanisms, requiring diameters less than 1/3” and as small as 0.020” (0.5mm). The Asahi Drive Cable is a multi-layer, multi-filar, stranded flexible shaft with high bi-directional torque transmission properties with minimal backlash or lag.  The multi-stranded shaft may be laser welded and edm cut to short lengths for a smooth finish (1”) to 2m lengths depending on the application.

A cannulated 3 layer version (flat wire torque coil) is also offered for applications in which material in which aspirated material is extracted through the lumen.
