Cutting Tantalum Wire in Production of Tantalum Markers
In this video Tantalum Markers are being produced by taking tantalum material off spool and run through our #2 Pneumatic Feed and Cut System and straightened and cut into 9mm lengths. A fine wire payoff is used to unspool tantalum wire and fed into wire straightener.
The 1mm diameter tantalum wire is fed through our TAK #1 Precision wire straightener to attain optimal straightness. Straightened material then enters the reciprocating feed unit & then pushed in exact lengths into the cutting head. Part lengths can be easily adjusted up or down on the #2 Pneumatic cut to length system using the fine adjust tooling. Quill on quill cutting method is used to leave a square burr-free cut with +/- .002” length tolerance. Secondary operations such as tumbling or passivation can be added to meet end use specifications.
