Guidewire tips can be a challenge to produce. The combination of wire core and thin external polymer sheath, along with precise external shapes require a precise, repeatable process to be formed accurately. A wide variation in sizes, tip configurations 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.
