The torque coil is a highly flexible coil consisting out of multiple layers with very fine wires. This makes the coil ideal for high speed rotation in very tortuous routings or anatomies.
For applications where relatively high outer diameters (2-4 mm) need to be combined with both good torque transmission and high flexibility, Asahi Intecc’s torque coil would be a good solution. Depending on the required rotation directions, torque coil is provided in both 2-layer and 3-layer versions.
Stable high speed rotation with high flexibility.
Round wire torque coil offers to possibility to combine high speed rotation in very tight angulation.
An example application of torque coil is IVUS catheter. The main benefit is enabling stable high speed rotation in tortuous segments, while also providing an inner lumen for additional cables or optical fibers.
FLAT WIRE TORQUE COIL: High flexibility with both side rotation and elongation resistance.
- High resistance to axial elongation and compression
- Excellent torque force and torque transmission (hand speed)
- Thin wall thickness and flat surface
