Handling Delicate Materials - Fine Cardiac Catheter Wires

Special care needs to be taken when handling delicate materials used in medical applications. Small diameters provide increased flexibility needed for the long flex life applications, such as cardiac catheter wires. Many other applications also use these fine materials as winding...

Large Patient Mover for Computerized Tomography (CT) Scans

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution studies sea animals that have washed up to help determine what natural or man-made effects are responsible for the deaths, including the recent dolphin die-off, working with their own CSI group - the Computerized Scanning and Imaging Facility.
