Quantum RF Tipping Machine

CATHTIP is the leader in catheter tipping technology. Its tabletop tipping machine, The Quantum, is designed to quickly produce flashless tipping with precise geometry formation.


Our state-of-the-art, precision catheter forming systems produce the highest quality parts with speed and consistency. Achieve flashless tips, smooth bonds, and exacting geometry with virtually all thermoplastic materials. 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.
