Bobbin Winding Machines

Solutions Group: Braiding

Designed to prevent tangles, breaks, kinks and twists during the braid process, SteegerUSA’s fine wire and bobbin winding solutions ensure that bobbin material is levelly loaded onto the spool, with accurate tensioning and strict process control.

These CE compliant machines are designed to accommodate different variants in customer specified requirements such as bobbin loading capacity (quantity), ends per single bobbing, tension load ranges and material payoff reel sizes.

New Balloon Folding Machine (Model FFS475i)

Solutions Group: Balloon Catheter

MSI's cutting-edge balloon folding machine enhances your operational efficiency by executing pleat and fold operations concurrently, resulting in a nearly 50% reduction in cycle time. This advanced equipment provides a dual advantage, delivering heightened production capacity at a single workstation without incurring additional labor costs. The FFS475i is particularly well-suited for sub-assembly balloon production environments.

Its pneumatic-controlled subassembly product holder puck effectively pressurizes and applies vacuum to the balloon during the folding process, subsequently maintaining vacuum while transitioning the subassembly to the pleat positions.To further enhance throughput, multiple pneumatic product holder pucks can be acquired.

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.
