Flexibility Matters. The Avalign team understands the importance of flexibility in both products and service. Our skilled engineers have developed our proprietary Flex Technology to provide customized solutions with varying degrees of flexibility to meet customers' specific product requirements. Avalign’s Flex Technology is a helical convolute pattern laser cut into cannulated bar that can transform the material from an inflexible solid tube into an engineered flexible shaft. Unlike other options currently on the market, our Flex Technology has a unique combination of design advantages:
• Helical convolute pattern with interlocking features to transmit torque in forward and reverse and to improve bending and axial strength
• Flex Technology uses common surgical grade stainless steels to enable welded and mobobloc design without the limitations of joining methods imposed by exotic metals and wire wound flex shafts
• Flexible design enables varying degrees of flexibility in any given tube size and even within a given flex shaft through custom engineered laser cut patterns
As an Avalign partner, customers receive flexible service, flexible design and flexible products to fit their needs. Contact your area sales manager for more information or to schedule a meeting with one of our Flex Technology engineers.
