Catheter Flex-Drill Manual Hole Forming Tool

Make clean and fast catheter holes for research and development with ease.

Flex-Drill by CATHTIP is the most flexible, cost-effective option for hole forming in catheter prototypes and early development applications.

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.

Quickly punch clean, burr-free holes even during the design stages. Proprietary hole drilling technology keeps your workspace clean.
