  • Nylon
  • PC (Polycarbonate)
  • PEEK (Polyether ether ketone)
  • PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)
  • Polyamide
  • Polyethylene:  HDPE and LDPE
  • Polyurethane

Custom Development!

We offer catheter tipping services

Catheter Production Assistance:  We offer design advice, process development for proof of concept, and prototyping. Production of engineering samples can often be made using our in-house dies (customer supplied tubing). A 100+ die library of various sizes and geometries can be used to make catheter samples to approximate your design for testing. Once you have settled on your final part design, we can build custom tooling to make your exact geometry. Or we can continue to use our in-house dies to provide small quantity production runs – allowing you to put off the purchase of a tipping machine until production volumes warrant bringing it in-house.

Our equipment performs all types of catheter forming operations, including tips, flares and bonds. Cath-Punch, our sister company provides hole-drilling machines. Additionally, we have a partner contract medical manufacturer who can utilize our process to produce your catheters.
