New Balloon Folding Machine (Model FFS475i)

Solutions Group: Balloon Catheter 

Machine Solutions latest balloon folding machine allows for increased throughput by running the pleat and fold operations simultaneously. This reduces cycle time by almost 50% allowing for more products to be manufactured at a single workstation with no increase in labor costs. 

4-Up Vertical Balloon Former (Model 1555)

Solutions Group:  Balloon Catheter 

The 1555 Balloon machine is designed for the production of a wide range of different high-quality plastic balloons and convinces with its small footprint for optimal use of production floor space. The vertical layout is ideal for a primary-secondary concept, where up to three additional machines can be connected to gradually meet growing production demands.

Automated Catheter Tipping Machine

Solutions Group:  Catheter Tipping

The Vante Onyx bench top catheter tipping system can be upgraded to include this automation package.  Equipped with this robot arm, the machine requires minimal operator interface for sustained continuous production of high-volume production catheter tips.

3-Up Automated Necking Platform (Model 833B) 

Solutions Group:  Balloon Catheters

This 3-Up Necking Machines reduce the outside diameter of thermoplastic tubes.  Tubing is heated to a temperature at which the yield strength of material is substantially reduced. The dimensional change is then accomplished by stretching the material in an axial direction. Common applications include: catheter shaft neck-down, heat shrink tubing sizing, polymer tubing layering and tubing jacketing (e.g. jacketing S.S. hypotube shafts or wire braids with polymer tubing).

Catheter Testing Pneumatic Roller System

Solutions Group: Testing  

Upgrade from the standard roller system.  

  • Allows clamp pressure to be consistent through product tappers/ transitions. 
  • Easy setup for large multi-sized comparative sample. 
  • Can be integrated into IDTE3000 software to allow opening and closing of the clamps throughout a run to better simulate surgeons’ process.

Touch Screen Hot Box (Model 310A)  

Solutions Group:  Balloon Catheters

This is a Full digital Balloon Development System (Model 310A), features an Allen Bradley PLC and Touch Screen HMI with a mass flow controller for the heater air.  It also features an electronic regulator for expand pressure function.  The system also includes a master safety relay, power management and an ethernet port for PLC Comms.
