The CR-240-SA Stent Crimping Machine is developed for the crimping and transfer into the delivery system of self-expandable stents up to 200 mm length with a maximum diameter of approx. 30 mm.


  • Double camera system integrated
  • Servo controlled stent crimping head with Zero Gap technology
  • Exchangeable pusher rods and delivery system holders for
    various stent diameters
  • 15.5” user interface with recipe control
  • The CR-240-SA is built with a very high-quality benchmark
    resulting in a stable and robust design with minimal cost of
  • The stent crimper can be easily calibrated using the one-point
    automatic diameter calibration function built into the system.
    Calibration in seconds.
  • Full process data logging to the internal PC system and
    transfer possibly to external USB for registration or analysis
