ACT ONE (Asahi Cable Tube ONE)

ACT ONE (Asahi Cable Tube ONE) is a hollow wire rope that incorporates all four ASAHI INTECC's core technologies - wire drawing, wire forming, torque improvement and optionally polymer coating.

ACT ONE (Asahi Cable Tube ONE) is a hollow wire rope that incorporates all four ASAHI INTECC's core technologies - wire drawing, wire forming, torque improvement and optionally polymer coating. ACT ONE cable tubes can possess a high maximum torque and high torque transmission compared to polymer braided tubes and stainless-steel coils.

They can also feature higher kink resistance and flexibility compared to hypo tubes. ACT ONE cable tubes are applied to a wide variety of minimally invasive and interventional devices within Cardiology, Peripheral, Neurology, Oncology, Orthopaedics and Flexible Endoscopy.

ACT ONE can meet a wide range of customer requirements through its easily customizable design. The following types are available:

  • Standard: built from round wires, this ACT ONE provides balanced mechanical properties, including the best 1:1 torque transmission.
  • Swaged: By swaging the ACT-ONE, bending stiffness, elongation resistance and maximum torque can be increased.
  • Flat: Through a centreless grind process, the wall thickness of ACT ONE can be decreased ranging from a small length segment only to its entire length.
  • Ultra-thin (UT): The ACT ONE type with the thinnest wall possible by using a flat wire instead of a round wire.
  • Possible dimensions OD 0.21 mm - 4.40 mm, ID 0.13 mm – 3.25 mm, max length 3000 mm.
  • Mechanical properties such as bending stiffness and elongation/compression resistance can be further adjusted by changing the total wire count they are built from (min. 6 – max. 18).
  • Most commonly made in SUS304, SUS316 and Nitinol.

ACT ONE can be further customized through different cutting and joining treatments, such as grind and EDM cuts, solder/laser welds, and laser weld assemblies to other metal tubes and parts. We also offer in-house polymer coating applications, such as PEBAX/PA/PFA extrusions, PTFE heat shrinks, PTFE spray/dipping, and inner tube PFA/FEP/ETFE assemblies.
