Elongated Shaft Hole-Drilling & Skiving

Custom 400-Series Machine

Customizable Solution!
Your Process Development Challenges
  • Torsional Stresses due to length of catheter shafts
  • High stiction forces between silicone extrusion & tooling
  • Potentially long processing cycles with traditional mandrel part loading


Our Solution to These Challenges
  • Dual x & rotary axes enabling total control of both tube ends
  • Tooling geometry optimized to reduce surface interactions
  • Flow-thru drill eliminates need for sacrificial mandrel, reducing cycle time
