What materials should we use for our medical wire rope assembly?

Stainless-steel is the most common material used in most of the miniature wire rope cable devices, but there are a lot more options. Some of our customers are using, based on their application, Nitinol, Tungsten, Vitallium, Inconel, Molybdenum and Dacron. Tungsten is becoming very popular because of its flexibility, durability, fatigue resistance and its ability to go even smaller in diameter than some stainless-steel cables can, with the same break strength. The ability to wrap around a small diameter pulley is another great advantage with Tungsten.
