The Tip form machine is designed to form the more advanced catheter tips in thermoplastic material. Forming takes place by placing the catheter tube in an electrical heated metal mould.

The mould is heated electrical to a specified temperature for a given period of time. The heated mould 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.

Tube specification

The SP 01-02 is designed to tip the small sized catheters with a more advanced shape, as the mould temperature can be controlled very precise. The tube tip can be formed in most thermoplastics as closed, open or curved tips in the sizes from CH 3 to CH 18. For each form and size a specific mould is required. The moulds are easily interchangeable.

Production capacity

The Tip form machine - advanced 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 min. 8 bar clean and dry compressed air.
