Catheter Tipping Applications
Catheter Tipping Machines
Flashless tipping with CATHTIP equipment
CATHTIP catheter tipping machines can tip, flare, or bond most any type of custom catheter tip you need – typically in one step – by applying our proprietary forming technology. We specialize in Radio Frequency (RF) tip forming and work with all thermoplastic extrusion including applications involving metal braiding and marker bands. View samples of types of catheters formed by CATHTIP manufacturing equipment in the gallery below.

Burr-free holes with CATHTIP equipment
The quality of CATHTIP catheter holes is unmatched working with all types of materials and hole geometry. Our technology will meet your needs to form hole sizes down to .018” and perform precise multi-lumen location. Holes can be drilled between braids of catheter tubing. Jump down to hole gallery ↓
1. Catheter Tipping Application Gallery
Produce a wide range of applications – flares, flanges, angular welds, bonds, multi-lumen shape transitions, butt welds, balloon to catheter welds, neck downs, soft-tip fusion, metal-to-tube adhering, sheaths, dilators, radio-opaque, strain relief bonds, swaged metal needle guides, tube-in-tube bonds, etc.
Thermoplastic tubing includes:
FEP (Fluorinated ethylene propylene) • ETFE (Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene) & EFEP • Nylon • PC (Polycarbonate) • PEEK (Polyether ether ketone) • PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) • Polyamide • Polyethylene: HDPE and LDPE • Polyurethane • PP (Polypropylene) • PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) • PVC (polyvinyl carbonate)
2. Catheter Hole Punching Application Gallery
We work with all types of thermoplastic materials and hole geometry. We will develop the hole punch process for your specific catheter application, providing prototypes made using our drill library containing all the most common catheter drill dimensions with a tolerance of ±.0005. Once a process is developed, our engineers can build a machine tailored to your application and then the production-ready workstation can be placed in our cleanroom for contract manufacturing or deployed at your facility with options for onsite installation and training.
