With the CAM.2’s full-fledged G-code underpinnings, direct integration with CAD/CAM packages is seamless. Previously unproduceable parts can be made easily, with minimal setup time, and with limited operator training.

GT-610 Centerless Grinders

Our modular GT-610 Series of precision Infeed/Thru-feed Centerless Grinders remove more material faster, and with better surface finishes than competing machines. Applications for machines within this series include aerospace fasteners, automotive transmission components, engine parts, and valve stems, PCD drill bits, arthroscopic bone shavers, bone drill blanks, medical device components, and more.

Electrochemical Grinding (ECG) + Cutoff

ECG combines abrasive grinding and electrochemical erosion producing a more efficient, cost-effective, and burr-free part. Burr-free cutoff and grinding eliminate the need for secondary operations, while multiple parts can be cutoff or ground at the same time to increase throughput.

Tridex PGS-100 Pointing and Material Handling System

The Tridex PGS-100 Pointing and Material Handling System manufactures a wide variety of medical device points on tubing or solid wire, such as medical needles, using electrochemical grinding technology (ECG). It can interface with tooling for secondary operations such as electro-polishing, bead blasting, and slotting without losing point orientation. Capable of producing tri-bevel, back bevel, trocar, diamond, stylet, Franseen, and custom points with minimal setup time.

Tridex CS1 Precision Cutoff System

Featuring superb accuracy and multiple bar cutting, the Tridex CS1 line of tube and bar cutoff machines offer fast, clean cuts. The Precision Abrasive, ECG, and Hybrid Abrasive ECG all offer a compact, robust design for superior tolerance and finish.

Catheter Tipping

Precision catheter tipping, flaring and bonding processes require CATHTIP systems. CATHTIP offers semi-automatic tabletop and stand-alone systems that maximize heat control and minimizes cycle time with a PID loop.

The Magnum

The Magnum is a semi-automatic catheter tipping manufacturing system that offers closed-loop control, minimizes cycle time with a PID loop and maximizes heat control. Operators control heat, part feeding, part clamping and air-cooling on a user-friendly touchscreen, achieving precision part feeding and placement with a programmed Servo motor and leadscrew drive. Product changeovers and die cleaning are an easy process with one-step, quick-change tooling integrates with the Quantum.

The Quantum

The Quantum is a tabletop semi-automatic catheter tipping machine that supports flashless tipping and fast, precise geometry formation. Tipping, flaring and bonding processes are accurate, repeatable, speedy and superior. Additionally, the quick-changing black box tooling integrates with the Magnum.

Catheter Punching & Hole Drilling

Single & multi-lumen tubing applications require precise, flash-free holes, plug collection, lumen location and detection, and 360-degree hole pattern capabilities. Our hole-making equipment and tooling are the standard industry solution.

ACCU Punch + ACCU Drill

SYNEO Accu-Drill and Accu-Punch equipment applications are the premier solutions for drilling flash-free, burr-free holes in a wide range of single and multi-lumen tubing materials such as Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), PEEK, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and Pebax®.

 

Accu-Drill and Accu-Punch machine solutions are utilized in clean room manufacturing environments where catheter punching and hole drilling applications exist. SYNEO hole making solutions are capable of holes as small as .005”, and offer capabilities such as multi-lumen location, hole quality inspection, and drilling holes between cross-sections of braided material.

Catheter Laminator / Reflow / Hot Boxes

Our Enclosed Quad Catheter Laminators shrink catheter tubing faster than the competition. Designed for vertical operation, the patented hot air circulation process contains the heat within the system which maximizes the time at temperature for faster processing. Our CT Hotbox uses a flexible way to bond balloons, tip catheters, and recover heat shrink or reflow tubing segments.

Open Quad Catheter Laminator

Our Open Quad Catheter Laminator machine uses recirculated hot air to shrink thermoplastic tubing down to a minimal diameter to produce catheters. Four catheters can be processed at once using two heating chambers with two process areas in each reflow chamber. The machine operates vertically to minimize the require floor space. By improving the accuracy of all controlled parameters, this machine can increase productivity through reduced rejects and faster processing speeds. The programming is flexible to allow new products to be made with the same machine.

Enclosed Catheter Laminator

Like the Open Quad Catheter Laminator, this machine also uses recirculated hot air to shrink tubing down to a minimal diameter. The enclosure isolates each side for improved process control. This machine, as well as the non-enclosed version, is CE certified for worldwide use. Laminating rates of 10 times that of other machine types is possible due to the increased length of the heated zone.

Coil Winding

Our coil winders were developed specifically to wind micro coils for the medical industry. These winders feature combinations of menu-selectable variable and tight-pitch wind capability. All winding parameters are precisely controlled, and the programmable wire tension can be controlled down to extremely low values.

Single, Multi-filar, variable and continuous mandrel length, machine vision and other custom features are available. Our systems can wind coils using .001” diameter wire on a .001” mandrel using our closed-loop filament and mandrel tension control systems. System flexibility enables the filar tension to be recipe-controlled from 5 to 300 grams during the entire wind. New double head machines can wind up to four (4) wires on each mandrel, and up to eight (8) wires on a single head machine.
