Many single-use devices must be designed to minimize tissue damage and the resulting increased chances for serious infections. Eyelets with smooth, radiused external edges and consistently shaped IDs are critical design features which requires a precise, repeatable production process. A wide variation in tube sizes, number & orientation of eyelets and eyelet configurations adds extra layers of complexity to the eye forming process.
