Butt welds between braided and non-braided tube segments are a standard method of creating kink-resistant catheters for diverse applications. The inclusion of braiding in the main catheter segment presents unique challenges in obtaining sufficient joint strength. All require precise external geometric configurations with securely bonded interfaces for proper functioning of the catheter. A wide variation in tube sizes, braid configurations, tube lamination constructions and polymer choices add extra layers of complexity to the tip forming process. Vante and PlasticWeld diverse equipment options provide you with unmatched versatility to meet your specific production challenges.
