K.C.Smith is a division of KPW that specialises in the manufacture and supply of wire materials for orthodontic and medical applications. Materials are supplied to Orthodontic laboratories, dental technicians, dental schools, the National Health Service (NHS) and universities.

Principal materials are stainless steels, in both 302 and 316 condition. These are produced in a variety of tempers, but the most common are fully hard or annealed.

Special strengthening wires are produced, either by rolling a profile into the wire, or by producing stranded wires which are then rolled flat.

Wire is supplied in a wide range of spools, coils and straight lengths, and the vast majority of materials and sizes are available from stock.

Other products supplied by KC Smith include stainless steel tubes, gauze and flat plates.
