Swanstrom M-Series Medical-Grade Cutters Material Chart

Swanstrom's M-Series Medical-Grade Cutters were created to meet the precision needs of the medical device manufacturing industry. These durable, ESD-safe cutters—available in a variety of head shapes, cutting edges, and a choice of standard or ergonomic handles—were made to cut a variety of hard wire materials (see chart) in a wide range of applications including:

  • Guide Wires - Applicable cutters based on material composition and diameter size
  • Stents - Applicable cutters based on wire diameter
  • Catheters - Applicable cutters based on material composition and diameter size
  • Stylists - Applicable cutters based on material composition and diameter size
  • Mandrels - M509E and M609E models are applicable
  • Braided Mesh - Applicable cutters include most carbides and the small, tapered, non-carbide models with flush and super-flush edges
  • Single/Multiple Filers - Most models are applicable for single filers; applicable cutters for multiple filers with a special hone are limited
  • Lateral/Internal Cuts - Applicable cutters for lateral cuts are based on material composition; specific models for internal cuts are based on the interior dimensions of the coils
