True Point (UK) Ltd's Standard Pivot is constructed from Brass
or Nickel silver,
while the tip is made of highly polished Iridium or Tungsten Carbide. The pivot is manufactured to close tolerance
to enable it to give good service in its working environment. A typical
application for this pivot is in scientific instruments and navigational compasses.
