Teleflex Medical OEM, a global leader in surgical instruments for orthopaedic and spinal procedures, has launched a high-performance rod cutter specifically designed to handle extremely strong cobalt chromium (CoCr) and titanium rods. Breakthrough, proprietary shearing technology provides consistent, clean cuts with less effort. In fact, operating effort is reduced by more than 50%! (Data on file. Based on 6.35mm cobalt chromium rod.) Performance tests indicate the durable rod cutter can cut cobalt chromium rods more than 500 times with minimal raised burrs or edges.
Engineered by Teleflex Medical OEM’s product development team, 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. The rod cutter can be custom configured with up to four different holes on the cutting head: 3.0mm to 6.0mm (in 1/2mm increments), plus 6.35mm. A sturdy base is available for table top use of the rod cutter. (Source: Teleflex Medical OEM)
