Achieve higher throughput and consistent repeatable results with our Dual Array VerticalLaminator (VL1050). Laminate your multi-durometer tubing, on this machine featuring 10 thermal nozzle and gripper arrays (2 banks of 5). This latest model streamlines production and the banks can be ran independently sharing the same recipe.
Traditionally, medical balloons made from materials such as nylon, PEBA, or PET have been limited by their single-layer design. Steeger’s innovative solution involves the integration of a braid structure, resulting in a significant enhancement of strength and achieving higher burst pressures than previously attainable.
The key factors in the success of the braid structure are the material used, fiber denier (fiber thickness), pick count or fiber angle, braid pattern, braid count, and the number of tri-axials.
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.
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. 1
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.
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.
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).
Upgrade from the standard roller system.
