Teleflex Medical OEM recently launched a high-performance rod cutter specifically designed to handle extremely strong cobalt chromium (CoCr) and titanium rods. With proprietary shearing technology, the cutter provides consistent, clean cuts with less effort, a reduction of more than 50% in some cases. Performance tests indicate the durable rod cutter can cut cobalt chromium rods more than 500 times with minimal raised burrs or edges.
The stainless steel rod cutter features a guide for easy insertion and proper positioning of a rod in the cutting hole, and extendable arms that lock in place for increased leverage and reduced operation efforts. It can be custom configured with up to four different holes on the cutting head: 3.0 6.0 mm (in 0.5-mm increments), plus 6.35 mm. A sturdy base is available for table top use of the rod cutter.
