Grinding of hypodermic needles

Needles that are manufactured from solid material, as well as hollow needles (hypodermic needles), place high demands on a burr-free grinding process, as a burr can easily break off and injure the patient.

A burr-free cutting edge is also generally sharper and allows easier penetration of the needle into the patient's skin.

Atlantic has drawn on its decades of experience and expertise in processing resinoid bonds and the finest abrasive grains to develop a special generation of fine-grain silicon carbide grinding wheels.

Customer benefits for the hypodermic needle grinding sector:

  • Production of burr-free needles
  • Extremely long service life of the grinding wheels (potentially in excess of 1 million needles per wheel!)
