The Tip form machine - single is designed to form tips for disposable medical catheters produced from thermoplastic material.

Forming takes place when a catheter tube is placed in the glass or nickel mould. The mould is heated to a specified temperature for a given period of time. The heat causes the plastic material to melt, and by pressing the tube into the mould the desired tip shape is obtained. The shape is stabilized by cooling the mould and the tube for a certain time.

The Tip form machine - single is designed for one mould. The moulds are easily interchangeable.

Tube specification

The tube tip can be formed in most thermoplastics as closed, open or curved tips in the sizes from CH 3 to CH 42. For each form and size a specific mould is required.

Production capacity

The Tip form machine - single has a production rate between 200 – 350 units per hour, depending upon the CH size of the catheters, material thickness and the experience of the operator.

Installation

The tip forming machine is connected to 1x230V AC 50-60Hz 10A and requires min. 8 bar of
clean and dry compressed air.
