How may we serve you? 

We’ve been encouraged to see our customers thriving and busy with so many new developments – thank you for letting us be a part of your success.

Speaking of new developments, this month we are introducing a new resource!  The Flex-Drill is the most flexible, cost-effective option for hole forming in catheter prototypes and early development applications.  Watch the video to learn more:


Flexible cost-effective development platform for quick catheter hole prototyping.

The Flex-Drill is handheld or mounted, and operated by a foot pedal. 

Operators can quickly and easily try new hole diameters or patterns in a variety of different tubing materials.

Enjoy smooth core evacuation and a clean workstation with the same superior Flow Thru™ drill bit technology found in all CATHTIP’s hole forming machines.
