Wire & Coil

Wires & Coils

TE specializes in the design and manufacturing of wire based delivery systems, guidewires, components and tooling. We offer wires and coils for cardiovascular and neurovascular device applications in a number of complex and small profile solutions, allowing access to the most complex vasculatures of the body.

Performance, Precision, Proprietary. TE can assist you at every stage of the product development process, from concept prototyping, metallurgical consulting, design for manufacturing assessment, cleanroom assembly, high-volume manufacturing to packaging and labeling.
We specialize in delivering high performance wires with robust surface finishing, high tolerances and enhanced stress relief for greater kink resistance and torque response. We have expertise at delivering complex wires & coils to high precision specifications and small profile solutions to 0.001” Ø. This unique combination of performance and precision is achieved through our proprietary in-house equipment.
